Specialist for root canal treatment
WHAT IS AN ENDODONTIST?
An endodontist is a dentist who has gone on to specialise in root canal treatments. This is what they do all day, every day - and in the case of our endodontist, they love it too. Our endodontist, Dr Aram Navai at Chelsea Dental Clinic uses an epic microscope and the best materials to carry out root canal treatments.
Does it hurt to have root canal treatment?
Short answer: No
Dr Aram Navai is incredibly gentle (his patients always say so!). He is of complete understanding that the prospect of root canal treatment can be a little scary, so he takes time to talk and discuss before starting ensuring he explains everything and answers all questions. He is commended for his excellence in handling nervous patients. In fact, the experience is so comfortable, some patients have even fallen asleep during treatment. It is a testament to his skills in root canal treatments that patients travel across London to see him.
Dr Navai is experienced in complex root canal treatments, including complicated anatomy, morphological anomalies, broken files and removal of posts. Where general dentists occasionally cannot find all the canals of a tooth, Dr Navai is better equipped due to his experience, combined with the use of advanced equipment, such as the use of a microscope and other equipment and materials. He is a very experienced specialist and understands the need to take our patients out of pain as gently and as quickly as possible.
