Your Patient Journey

We use cutting-edge treatment methods to carefully remove the infected bacteria that has collected within your tooth. All of our surgeries have suspended ceilings retaining 3D natural light imagery, so you can completely relax during your time in the dentist’s chair. If you’re a little anxious before your treatment, we can pre-arrange hand signals with you, so that you feel fully in control during the procedure – it’s all about helping you to feel fully prepared and at ease.

Journey Icon

If you are a new patient to Olive Tree Dental a new patient exam is carried out first to ensure you are dentally fit for the treatment. A comprehensive assessment is then undertaken.

We will ask you to attend an examination, so that we can diagnose the need for root canal treatment.

Olive Tree Dental stand out as a practice that really takes the time to listen to its patients; we feel it’s really important to get to the heart of your expectations of treatment.

We will closely study your smile and the elements that make it unique to you, so that we can gain valuable insight that will allow us to successfully plan your smile design. Your treatment will never be rushed, as we will always make sure you are happy before proceeding to the next stage of the process.

You will need to return for a second appointment for your treatment.

Journey Icon

Treatment (second appointment)
Your dentist will numb the area around the affected tooth with local anaesthetic and isolate the tooth utilising a rubber dam stopping any saliva or bacteria from getting into your mouth. Once the root canals of the tooth have been thoroughly cleaned and disinfected, a filling material is placed within it. A crown or filling is placed over the top, fortifying it, and restoring its aesthetic.

Journey Icon

We recommend a soft food diet for 2 or 3 days after treatment. Hot and cold food and drink should be avoided in the hours after the procedure has been performed, as the tooth will still be numb, which could cause a burning sensation.


What Are The Symptoms Of An Infected Tooth?

The following symptoms indicate an infected tooth:

  • Discomfort when you bite down.
  • Extreme, lingering tooth sensitivity.
  • A severe dental fracture.
  • An abscess (pus-filled ball) adjacent to a tooth.
  • Swelling in the gums around the tooth.
  • Changes to the shade of a tooth (infected teeth can look grey and dark).

How Long Does Root Canal Treatment Take?

Your treatment will take place over 2 or 3 visits. The procedure itself takes anything from 30-90 minutes, depending on the complexity of the case. If patients are nervous, we can book longer appointment slots to ensure patients feel comfortable throughout the treatment.

Will My Tooth Look As Good As New When Treatment Is Complete?

Your filling or crown will be matched to the shade of the existing healthy teeth in your mouth. Once placed, only a dentist is likely to be able to tell you have had treatment on your infected tooth.

I have been going to olive tree dental now, for about a year and a half. The service is always so friendly and they really help you make the best decision when it comes to your teeth. I have had Invisalign treatment with Patricia, which was exceptional.The regular hygienist appointments and general check ups are also very good, and the parking around the dentist is excellent. I would highly recommend going more

From the first step through the door it felt far removed from the standard clinical feel of any dentist I had been to previously. Not only are the offices beautifully decorated and the staff welcoming and friendly but the resulting impression from my first appointment was one of confidence instead of fear. Dr Zyada was very thorough in her checks and took the time to go through each and every tooth to explain exactly what needed to be done and why. It makes the return appointment a lot less daunting, thank you. Would definitely recommend Olive Tree more

The team at Olive Tree Dental are great! My dentist was very thorough and took the time to patiently explain her findings and what would be required for future visits. Like most people I don't enjoy going to the dentist, but the team made it as comfortable as possible. The rooms were really clean too!read more

Olive Tree Dental are a fantastic dental practice. All of their staff are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. I was given an appointment here with Smile White UK teeth whitening and the dentist was lovely! She was great at advising me in detail how to use the teeth whitening for my teeth, as they are particularly sensitive. I would definitely recommend more

I went to Olive Tree Dental Clinic few times for teeth cleaning, emergency dental work and consultations. The clinic was very clean and inviting, stuff was very friendly and dentist was very gentle and reassuring. I appreciated the fact that she was communicating with me during the procedures so I wasn’t wondering what’s going on or when it will finish. I’ve been to quite a few dental clinics previously but never felt as valued and welcomed, and never got such high quality dental service. Highly recommend it to anyone and especially to those who feel nervous and anxious when visiting dentist. I feel lucky to live nearby!read more
