Endodontic Treatment (Root Canal Therapy)

At hygeia Dental  Care we carry out “root canal therapy” treatment to save natural teeth.

Our Dentist Joanne Giddy,  has a special interest in endodontic treatment.  Joanne carries out a full range of surgical and non-surgical endodontic treatments, which included re-treatment (where previous root canal therapy hasn’t worked for you).

We pride ourselves on our care and quality of treatment – over the years we have successfully saved many teeth for our patients.  Joanne Giddy’s survival rates for teeth that she treats are high, with 87% of teeth surviving for at least 10 years (our own 2017 audit data).


Our aim is to:

Saving teeth with the best possible endodontic treatment in totnes

As soon as you walk through the door making you feel at ease,  comfortable and ensure your  well-being is our priority, right through to your aftercare.

Maintain a healthy mouth so that: i) your root-treated tooth lasts a long time and ii) you’ll be less likely to need root canal treatment on your other teeth.
