Root Canal Liverpool Street

Same-Day & Pain-Free

  • Unexplained, sharp tooth pain?
  • Severe pain when biting down?
  • Noticeable discolouration to the tooth?
  • Black spots appearing on the tooth?
  • Unusual sensitivity to touch, hot and cold?
If you’re experiencing any of the above symptoms, it might indicate that the pulp inside the tooth is infected, which has led to inflammation and pain.

A straightforward, common procedure to save your tooth from infection is a root canal, which, if successful, can prevent the tooth from requiring extraction. Root canals at our clinic in Liverpool Street are charged from £485.

Start with a check-up first.

A comprehensive exam will best confirm the diagnosis and assess the oral health condition. New patients pay £155, while registered patients pay £95. For urgent cases, call 020 7621 0600.

What to expect with the root canal procedure

  • Diagnosis: Our team will assess your tooth and perform X-rays to gauge the extent of the damage. We’ll ensure your comfort with a local anaesthetic before proceeding.
  • Pulp Removal: Dr. Alfonso Frontera, our endodontist, will access the pulp chamber, remove infected tissue, and thoroughly clean and disinfect the tooth’s interior.
  • Filling and Sealing: Once cleaned, the space is filled with a biocompatible material and sealed to prevent further infection.
  • Restoration: A dental crown might be recommended to cover and protect the tooth further for additional strength and to ensure it functions just like a regular tooth.

Root canal dentist advice

When tooth decay, cavities and cracks in the tooth are ignored in the tooth for some time, it allows bacteria to enter, causing an infection that might cause you to lose your tooth.

As your dental pulp homes nerves, blood vessels and connective tissues, a root canal is often necessary to avoid excruciating tooth pain, swelling and other complications.

Failing to address pulp infections can result in:

  • Tooth loss and the need for costly replacements.
  • The infection spreads to other neighbouring teeth.
  • Preventing the infection from entering the bloodstream.

Really don’t want a root canal? Explore alternative treatments

Even though a root canal will likely be your next best step, there are alternative treatments your dentist can walk you through to help save the tooth.

  1. A pulpotomy is to remove the infected pulp.
  2. Tooth extraction to remove the tooth and relieve pain.

It’s best not to avoid a root canal if you’ve been recommended one.

If you’re avoiding a root canal out of fear, let us help put your mind at ease. Being an anxious and nervous patient is a common problem, and our practice is set up to accommodate you better and make you feel comfortable. We also offer sedation options, like gas and air, to eliminate feelings of fear during your appointment.


“Great location in the city. I recently had a lot of work done (teeth shaping, fillings, root canals). I hate going to the dentist, and they could see how anxious I was for the check-up and had options to deal with that, which was very much appreciated. Very thorough and lovely staff. Dr Druttmond did a great job, and I am very happy with the results. As much as I didn’t like having to visit so many times, seeing lovely Raya each time really did brighten up my day!” Nikki, London

I've been seeing George for over 15 years. One of my best decisions. Teeth needed serious attention and were immediately "rescued". They have been maintained to an excellent level ever since. Fantastic treatment and continuing results.

American 🇺🇸 Pilot with a very busy schedule. Was in London of one of my many layovers summer 2023. Had not been to a dentist in sometime. Was in need of a deep scaling for oral hygiene and start pains of a Carrie. I’m one of those and for all work completed under N20 (Nitrous Oxide Gas) for seems to be only way. He was able to see me and complete this matter swiftly and professionally. Didn’t scare me out of the chair. Recommend this practice and would return on a layover.

I recently had the pleasure of visiting CapCityDental for a dental cleaning, and I must say, it was an exceptional experience from start to finish. As someone who prioritizes oral health, I've had my fair share of dental appointments, but this one truly stood out. From the moment I walked in, I felt welcomed and at ease, setting the tone for a fantastic dental cleaning session. The moment I stepped into the clinic, the friendly receptionist - Michael, greeted me with a warm smile and efficiently took care of the check-in process. The waiting area was clean, comfortable, and featured modern decor that helped create a relaxing atmosphere. It was clear that the staff at at CapCityDental value professionalism and patient comfort. Dr. George, the senior dental hygienist was a true expert in his field. He took the time to explain the entire cleaning process, making sure I was comfortable and informed every step of the way. Indeed, it did feel like a warm hug. Furthermore, his dental nurse Marilou was just a gem. Her gentle yet thorough approach put me at ease, and I could sense her commitment to delivering top-notch oral care. It's evident that CapCityDental has a team that's passionate about what they do. What truly sets CapCityDental apart was their dedication to personalized care and patient education. The hygienist nurse took the time to discuss my oral health habits and offered valuable insights on how to improve my routine. She answered all my questions patiently, showing a genuine interest in my oral health journey. This level of individualized attention left a lasting impression on me. In conclusion, my dental cleaning experience at CapCityDental was nothing short of outstanding. From the moment I walked in to the moment I left, I felt valued as a patient and confident in the care I received. The professionalism, expertise, and genuine concern for patient well-being were evident throughout. I wholeheartedly recommend this clinic to anyone seeking exceptional dental care in a welcoming and modern environment. I'm already looking forward to my next visit!

I had emergency root canal with George and team, and subsequent fillings and hygiene. The service and quality of finish was impeccable. Excellent communication and a focus on patient experience puts you at ease from the start. The after care is also excellent. Couldn’t recommend enough.

I have been so incredibly impressed with my experiences at CAP City Dental. George has been so professional, caring and clearly has a wealth of experience within dentistry. I have had a variety of treatments over many years with George and he is the only dentist I have ever come across that has been able to ease my anxiety surrounding dental treatment. The new Austin Friars premises is so well located in the heart of London and it’s actually a tranquil experience to attend appointments.100% recommended!

George and his team have been looking after me for almost 10 years now. When George took me on, my teeth were in a very sorry state. Since then George has worked very hard to improve the function, health and look of my teeth. Thanks to George I only require routine checkups and the odd piece of work now. Seeing George has made going to the dentist a breeze and a very happy social occasion! I can’t recommend George highly enough. The best dentist I’ve ever had. Very attentive and caring…with exquisite attention to detail; second to none. I should also mention that the new location in Austin Friars is a lovely calm oasis in the heart of the City. Modern health setting in a historic built environment. Thanks George.

I had a tooth that was causing me severe pain. I was feeling highly anxious because my previous dentist treated the wrong tooth. My childhood orthodontist left me with an occlusion and had taken out too many teeth. I was having trouble finding a dentist who would not only treat my gaps and cavities, but would also provide an unbiased opinion of my previous treatments. After appointments with other clinics, I found Cap City Dental. Dr Druttman, Marilou, Reni and Michael were welcoming. They helped me correct years of problems in just three visits over as many weeks. The team genuinely try to understand what you are trying to achieve. They don’t push you to have work done. I particularly appreciated Dr Druttman’s comprehensive reports in which he provided his professional opinion on what happened and what should happen moving forward. I highly recommend them not only because they make sure you feel comfortable, but provide you with enough information to ensure you can make an informed decision.
