Root Canal Treatment in Southampton

Expertly repairing your smile

If you’re looking for affordable root canal treatment in Southampton from a highly experienced dentist, our modern clinic can help.


We are a highly trained and dedicated team who have over 15 years experience of root canal treatments.


When a tooth has had decay deep into its structure the inside or pulp of the tooth can become infected, this causes an abscess. If this happens there are only two options for the tooth, to extract or to treat the root canal.


We do our best to always save teeth and so root canal treatment or endodontics is carried out.


Root canal treatment is a much more predictable treatment than it ever used to be, the inside of the tooth is cleansed out and shaped with a series of files and disinfected.


Once shaped the canals are then sealed with a plastic type material to seal the tooth and prevent re-infection.

Meet our root canal expert

Over 17 years extensive dentistry experience


George Margaritis (GDC No. 84030) has gained an additional qualification in this field – a Diploma in Endodontics from the prestigious Queen Mary University, Royal London Hospital.  We are fortunate, therefore, to be able to offer our patients endodontic equipment that you may not find in every dental practice that aids George to achieve predictable results.


It can take several appointments to complete a root canal treatment as some of the canal structures can be quite complex. We will advise as we progress through the treatment what to expect and of course if we think extraction is preferable we will discuss this with you.


Once a tooth has successfully been root treated a permanent restoration is also required as a root treated tooth tends to be weaker. We would then place either an inlay, onlay or crown depending on how much of the tooth structure has been lost.

Safe and pain free treatment

Feel at ease with enhanced sedation

“From my first visit to BD I have felt at ease and very well cared for by the team. The dentists are extremely professional, friendly and reassuring me all the way throughout my treatment plan, which included extractions, root canal, fillings replaced.


All procedures were entirely painless and the dentist has done some amazing work and has given me back my smile and confidence. I would highly recommend BD”
