Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment involves removing damaged or dead nerves and filling the space. This allows your dentist to repair the tooth that is left.

Our aim is to assist patients in retaining the natural dentition whenever possible and a very useful treatment for retaining badly broken down or symptomatic teeth is root canal treatment.

Root canal treatment is a pain free procedure and while there may be occasional post-operative symptoms from this treatment the vast majority of cases resolve without post-operative pain.

Following root canal treatment, it might be necessary to crown a tooth but this would be discussed before any treatment would commence.

At Nuala Cagney Dental & Facial Aesthetics Clinic our dentist will discuss the treatment options that are available to you. 

Routine Checkup

Your check up will include a thorough full mouth examination for dental decay.


Our dentists will be happy to discuss all of your options with you and discuss if you are suitable for a white or silver filling


When a tooth is very badly damaged or is causing infection or pain we may need to extract or remove the tooth.


These are used to replace missing teeth and are made of plastic. Sometimes metal is also used in order to make them strong and less bulky.


Your dentist may decide to use x-rays to gain more information about your teeth, as they show what is happening inside and around the tooth and its roots.

Fissure Sealants

Fissure sealants are a plastic coating placed on the biting surface of molars which are used to reduce the chances of decay on these surfaces.

Stainless Steel Crowns

Stainless steel crowns are recommended for larger cavities and cavities that involve the nerve of the tooth. These are only suitable for baby (milk) teeth.

Space Maintainers

Baby teeth are needed to hold space for the permanent teeth that are waiting to come in..

Sports Mouthguards

A custom-made mouthguard is one that is made by your dentist following an impression of the teeth and is fitted by your dentist.

Cancer Screening

Cancer screening is routinely carried out at your dental health check, giving us the opportunity to detect any abnormal areas in your mouth that may need further investigation.
