Why have I been referred?

General Dental Practitioners are able to undertake root canal treatment but, in certain circumstances, your regular dentist may not feel confident that he or she will be able to carry out the treatment successfully.

This may be because a treatment needs repeating when it has not been successful. Often teeth have complex curved or narrow roots that are very difficult to negotiate without Specialist equipment.

It is good practice to refer a patient in this circumstance and shows that a practitioner wants to achieve the best for their patient.
Research suggests that Specialists can achieve the highest success rates and they have the training, equipment and expertise to tackle difficult cases more predictably.
