What is endodontics dentistry?
Endodontics dentistry deals with managing conditions and treatment that affect the inside of the tooth. An endodontist will endeavour to prevent the tooth from being removed.
When the inner layer or pulp of the tooth becomes inflamed or infected caused by either decay or a deep fracture in the tooth, then you may be referred to an endodontist.
Patients from Fitzrovia, Mayfair, Marylebone and throughout London are being referred to us at Rod McNeil and Associates where our specialist endodontist can treat mild through to complex pulp infections.
- Intense throbbing pain in the tooth or gum
- Increased sensitivity to hot and cold
- Swollen or tender gums
- A discoloured or loose tooth
An inner tooth infection can spread to the root canal system causing an abscess. The swelling in the tissue around the tooth is caused by a build-up of pus which can be painful. If left untreated, the infection will spread causing potential tooth loss.
Rather than remove the tooth, an endodontist will treat the tooth with special cleaning, treating the infection and sealing the tooth to prevent further infection.

What is the process for endodontics at Harley Street?
There are different procedures involved in endodontic dentistry.
Root Canal Treatment
Root canal treatment is the most common dental treatment used to treat an infected tooth pulp. This procedure can be performed by different members of the team at Harley Street. For serious or more complex cases, you will be referred to our specialist endodontist.
Under local anaesthetic, the infected pulp is removed from the inside of your tooth. It is then shaped and cleaned using an anti-bacterial solution.
Your endodontist will refill or restore your canals. This prevents bacteria from re-entering and causing more damage. If you’re the canals are impassable, you may need endodontic surgery.
In the final stage, the root canal filling is sealed using a crown or filling which gives the tooth a normal appearance and enables it to function again.
This type of surgery involves the tooth root surface and can include a root re-section whereby the entire root is removed. An apicoectomy surgery is where the root end is removed.

I HAVE RECOMMENDED 31 HARLEY STREET TO ALL MY FRIENDS AND CLIENTS
Rod McNeil and his team truly offer the best dental care in London. I tried several other practices previously with mixed results. When you try this team however, I defy you to ever think about going elsewhere. Their hygienists are sensational (care, accuracy, equipment, expertise). All of this on the Harley Street, at very reasonable rates. Great personalities also. Keep up the Sterling work!
ROD IS QUITE CONCEIVABLY THE BEST DENTIST IN LONDON.
I have been under his care for some 20 years now and it would be difficult to imagine how I could have been being looked after better. He is the embodiment of professionalism and I would recommend him to anyone without a moment's hesitation.
I COULDN'T RECOMMEND THIS PRACTICE AND THEIR STAFF HIGHLY ENOUGH!
I’ve been to this practice twice for hygiene appointments with Kelsey, she was great and did a thorough job. I was nervous in the chair but she did amazing to keep me calm and made sure I was comfortable. The practice’s Covid procedures also made me feel very safe.
