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 Mahdi Ajina

Mahdi graduated from Bart's and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry and has since worked in general practice. During these years he developed a passion for endodontics (root canal treatment). This passion lead Mahdi to pursue further training in endodontics by entering a Masters course back at the dental school of Bart's and The London. Completing this course has increased his knowledge of endodontics and enhanced his skill in the area through the treatment of complex cases referred to the dental hospital. The course has also given Mahdi the opportunity to be involved in the latest advancements in the field by conducting research at the dental school. Mahdi is a member of the British Society of Endodontics and keeps up to date with the latest developments by attending events held by the society and reading their journal, the International Endodontic Journal.

Mahdi is committed to providing high quality endodontic treatment in a relaxed and comfortable environment. He is an asset to our team and we hope that many of our patients will benefit from his expertise.

Mahdi 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, Mahdi 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.
