Dental Claims Guide to Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy or endodontic therapy is a common dental procedure, designed to repair painful and infected teeth by removing the infected root, internally cleaning the tooth and ending the patient’s toothache. The surgery is usually performed by a dental surgeon to alleviate pain, and to create a more consistent appearance and strength across the teeth.
While root canal procedures continue to increase in the UK, this comes with a similar rise in negligent dental cases. A firm of dental negligence solicitors can make a dental claim for you if an error has been made by your dentist. Considerable compensation can be awarded to aid you in your recovery from bad root canal therapy.
Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors Number One in the UK
Dentistry has never been the most popular treatment for patients but when you put your teeth in the hands of a dentist, you have the right to expect their most professional efforts at all times. Most dentistry carried out in the UK is performed in private clinics, where to date there is minimal regulation and procedures often cost thousands of pounds.
More and more dental patients find they are disappointed with the results of their dental treatments and are left to count the physical and financial cost when root canals go wrong.
As the first firm of solicitors in England and Wales dedicated to victims of cosmetic and dental negligence, Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors can help when bad root canals happen to you. We understand how to assist you whether it’s root canals gone wrong or any other bad dental surgery procedure.

Root Canal Therapy
When a tooth is badly infected, unfortunately, antibiotics are not possible and the only treatment options are root canal therapy or dental extraction. For more on dental extraction, click here for Cosmetic Surgery Solicitor’s guide to all tooth extraction procedures.
A tooth becomes infected when bacteria enters the tooth’s nerve. This can occur due to dental decay, existing deep or leaking fillings, trauma or gum disease. Normally you realise you have an infected tooth when you get a toothache which, if left untreated, can lead to a dental abscess.
Done under local anaesthetic, the root canal dental treatment begins with the dentist drilling a hole in the centre of the tooth to provide access to the root canal system. Once all the root canals have been cleaned and shaped, they are permanently filled to prevent bacteria from re-entering the canal system. A final x-ray may then be taken to check the canals have been filled completely and to the correct length. Root filled teeth are more brittle than healthy teeth and a crown may be required to improve the dental strength. Single-rooted teeth root canal therapy can often be finished in an hour but multi-rooted teeth and more complex root canals may take several visits to the dentist to complete.
After root canal treatment the patient may experience a little discomfort for a few days. But if your pain has continued for longer than that, then your root canal may have gone wrong.

When Root Canals Go Wrong
Most root canal therapy works well for dental patients but complications can occur during or after root canal treatment increasing the chance of the therapy going wrong. These can include:
- root fracture
- instrument fracture inside the root canal
- perforation of the tooth by the instrument
- failure to clean, shape or fill the canals appropriately
- poor quality fillings/crowns
These are all clear signs that you are a victim of negligent dental treatment and that a root canal negligence claim should be made. Your dentist has a duty of care to ensure that you undergo a safe and competent root canal therapy.
