Root Canal Therapy

Services we provide

At Currie & Gribben, we have performed countless root canal treatments to help patients save teeth that have become badly decayed or infected.

What is a Root Canal?

The root canal is the natural cavity lying within the centre of a tooth. Within it sits the pulp chamber and the nerve. Root canal treatment is undertaken when tooth decay or infection has advanced and it is the only way to fix or repair the tooth. During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed. Without treatment, the tissue surrounding the tooth will become infected and abscesses may form.

If the nerve of your tooth has been damaged, not only can it cause you a lot of pain, but you will be more vulnerable to serious problems such as infection. You may even experience severe toothache because the nerve has become inflamed. At this stage, antibiotics are unlikely to help and a root canal filling may be recommended.

What is involved?

As with every treatment we offer, our expert clinicians will carefully talk through your options to ensure you are completley happy.

The first step is to make you feel as comfortable as possible during the procedure. You will then receive a local anaesthetic from one of our expert dentists. When that has fully taken effect, a small hole will be made enabling the dentist to assess the tooth, remove decay and fully treat the disease to prevent further damage from happening. The final stage is to shore up the repaired tooth. At this point, your dentist will decide whether you require a dental crown to be placed on the tooth, as is often the case. This is because your natural tooth may now be weaker. Our expert dentists will be able to discuss any additional treatment options with you for the best outcome.

What our patients are saying

Our happy clients

I have been a patient with Mel Currie for just over 20 years. In that time I have presented with a number of problem dental issues. These have been treated successfully with a high degree of professional competence and always with patience and reassurance. I owe Mel a lot for my present good dental health

Richard Jones

We have been patients of Mel Currie for over a decade and have at all times been totally satisfied with the service and treatment which has been conducted in a most professional and thorough manner.  Mel has resolved many and varied complex problems during our time with him to our total satisfaction.

Norman and Ina Crawford

absolutely fabulous!!!
It was a joy to watch them interact with my son, who usually finds it hard to sit still.
no fear or worry and a happy boy going home.


Massive thanks to Mel and the team. After getting three crowns I can smile again with confidence. A great transformation, the crown colours and shape match my natural teeth perfectly. Highly recommended, thanks so much!

Craig Monaghan

I absolutely dread getting work done on my teeth but need not have worried so much as Mel was very reassuring and did a fantastic job. Thank you so much!

JL Armagh

Going to Mel for over six years now and am delighted with the service and would highly recommend Currie and Gribben to anyone.

Derek Maher Dublin

I would like to thank Gemma and Kirsty , I've been going to this Dentist for a number of years and I can safely say these two girls are very professional at their jobs. I wouldn't go anywhere else. Keep up the good work and look forward to seeing you again.

JN Armagh

Fantastic place. As a very nervous patient I avoided the dentist when I knew I needed to go. A friend told me about Mel and I would recommend him to anyone. He is the best and makes you feel at ease.
