    If I could give them 10/10 I would. Superb service for an out of hours emergency, state of the art digital technology and extremely professional same day on site service. From a broken tooth on a Friday evening to a fully complete & new digitally designed & manufactured (on site) bespoke fitted crown before lunchtime on the following day. Thank you for such excellent service.

    Had work done for an injury. Very friendly and walked me through all the work i would have done. Arranged for me to get emergency work done on a sunday, saving me a days pain.
    Fast ,efficient and very professional work that's left me with a crown that looks no different to my original tooth.

    Recommended to Dr Sehra by a friend. I must say I was very happy with the service. I am always very nervous about going to dentist, but felt I was always treated with the utmost care and attention, so I found the whole experience very positive. I was in and out in a timely manner and even had the chance to discuss more dental options I have over the long term. I would be very happy to come back to the practice.

    Excellent work by Dr Sehra and his team, Nina and Rachel, all very professional. Especially impressed by his crown making machine, evidently there are not many of these in England, I was expecting to wait weeks. Will be back later this year for some implants, I expect these will be equal to the work done so far.

    After having real bad toothache and not getting any luck, I called acorn and they got me in within the hour, by ten pm we had identified the problem and a wisdom tooth needed removing. The doctors were extremely understanding and agreed to sedate me. I don't remember anything, I didn't feel a thing. Absolutely the best dental experience I've ever had. Highly recommended.

Root canal treatment (also called endodontics) is needed when the pulp inside your tooth becomes infected through tooth decay or damaged by an injury to your mouth. This infection may spread through the root canal system and could eventually lead to an abscess, causing a great deal of discomfort. If root canal treatment is not carried out, the tooth may need to be taken out. Root canal therapy involves the following:

  1. First, local anaesthetic will be administered to ensure no discomfort is felt during treatment.
  2. The tooth will be prepared with a drill, allowing access to the root canal system.
  3. The root canal system will be thoroughly cleaned out to remove all infection and pulp.
  4. The root canal system is then filled and sealed temporarily with a crown.
  5. The tooth is checked at a later visit and when all the infection has cleared, the tooth is permanently filled.

Root canal treatment is a skilled and time-consuming procedure and most courses of treatment will involve two or more visits.

Life benefits:

  • Preservation of remaining healthy tooth structure.
  • Prevention of infection spreading any further.
  • Restoration of tooth to its natural look and feel.
