As endodontists, limiting their practice solely to endodontic treatment, they perform routine as well as difficult and very complex procedures, including root canal treatment, root canal re-treatment and endodontic microsurgery.

Dr Shalini is a Registered Specialist with the General Dental Council (UK), having completed her training at Guy’s Hospital in 2009.
She teaches undergraduate and postgraduate students at The University of Central Lancashire (UCLan). She is a Course Lead for the part-time MSc Endodontology programme and the full time MClinDent Endodontology programme.
As the Course Lead and Senior Clinical Lecturer at UCLAN, Dr Shalini routinely undertakes complex root canal treatments, which general dentists in practice are unable to.
Dr Shalini’s training, experience and research work puts her at the forefront of Endodontic (root canal) treatments.
Dr Shalini Kanagasingam contributed to ‘The Principles of Endodontics’ edited by UCLan’s Clinical Professor Dr Shanon Patel and Dr Justin Barnes. The textbook is a guide on why and how to carry out safe and effective endodontic treatment.

Post & Core
Build-up of Tooth
We advise that between two to six weeks after your root canal treatment is completed to have your final restoration (normally a crown) done unless advised differently by us.
In certain cases, a tooth may lack sufficient structure for a crown to be placed. In such cases, a post may be necessary for additional support.
If only a minimal amount of your tooth is missing, a conventional filling may be all that is required to restore your tooth to its natural appearance and function.
Dr Shalini will advise you of the best option for your tooth following an assessment of your treatment records
This can happen for a variety of reasons, the most common of which are listed in this section. A re-treated tooth can function well for years, or even a full lifetime. However, once a tooth has been previously treated, the success rates of further re-treatments drop to about 80%.
At Camden Place Dental Practice patients are always put first. From the moment you enter our relaxing waiting rooms, our professional and friendly teams and highly skilled dentists will make sure that your needs are put first every step of the way.
Please be aware that appointments missed or cancelled without 24 hours notice will be charged at a rate proportionate to the length of the missed appointment.
The only other alternative to Endodontic treatment is extraction (removal) of the tooth. The extracted tooth must then be replaced with an implant, bridge or removable partial denture to restore chewing function and to prevent adjacent teeth from moving about. No matter how effective tooth replacements are, nothing is as good as your own natural tooth!
