Endodontics

Endodontic or root canal treatment is the only means of saving a tooth in which the nerves and blood vessels within the tooth have been damaged or have died. The damage may have been caused by deep decay, a crack or trauma.

Dr Alessandro Falanga

Alex completed his specialist training in Endodontics at King’s College London in 2012.

He achieved his first dental qualification in 2002 at the Universita Cattolica in Rome, Italy. He believes that such international learning and clinical experience enriches his work in the general dental and endodontic fields, providing him with extensive knowledge of dental techniques and technology.

Alex is a specialist in the use of endodontic techniques and procedures- root canal therapy and treatment for dental traumas. Dedicated to providing quality care, Alex’s interest in endodontic dentistry serves as a strong foundation for advancing his knowledge in dentistry and a dedication to achieve the best results for his patients.

Alex has published papers on the subject of endodontics, both nationally and internationally.

Since 2004 he has worked in multiple dental practices in London and the Home Counties on a referral basis and in 2011he joined our team in Welwyn Garden City solely focusing on the subject of endodontics using state of the art Global G4 dental microscope.

Alex is an asset to our team and we hope that many of our patients will benefit from his expertise.

Alex uses dental rubber dam routinely for all root canal treatments to isolate the tooth and help prevent bacteria contaminating the root canals during treatment.

He uses all the latest equipment and techniques including a Global G4 dental microscope to provide patients with the best possible preparation, disinfection and filling of the root canals.

Root canal treatments are carried out over one or two visits. Following treatment, Alex will write back to the referring dentist detailing the work that has taken place. The referring dentist will then put a crown on the root treated tooth (if needed) so that the patient can chew confidently and without discomfort again.
