Endodontic (RCT) referrals at Crownwood Dental
Patients can be self referred or referred to us from their own dentist but only on a private basis.
Referrals are carried out by the Crownwood Dental Endodontic team made up of Dr Pavan Gogna and Dr Rupinder Reel.
Dr Pavan Gogna BDS Hons (KCL) MJDF (Lond) Diploma in Endodontics (UCL)
General Dentist & Dentist with Special Interest (DwSI) in Endodontics
GDC Registration 82478
Pavan achieved his BDS from Guy’s Hospital with Honours, which then allowed him to complete his vocational training in Chingford; London, under the watchful eye of Dr Raj Gogna (no relation), who is a leading Specialist in Prosthodontics.
Upon completion of his VT year, he went on to work at a fully private practice in Reading and after attending many courses he soon decided he wanted to focus more on Endodontics and so decided to begin a Diploma in Prostgraduate Endodontics at the renowned Eastman Dental Institute in London, working alongside some of the best Endodontists in the UK. His studies were designed to help him on his pathway to becoming an expert in Root Canal Therapy. Pavan has been at CrownWood now for over 7 years. He has brought a very caring style to treating his patients and thoroughly believes in putting patients' interests first.
Pavan currently accepts referrals for endodontic consultations and investigations, primary RCT, secondary RCT, post placement and post removal. Currently he does not accept cases requiring apical surgery as often with these cases root canal retreatment works better or other options should be considered.
For £35 he offers a consultation appointment. This includes a full assessment, all necessary radiographs, details of treatment required, full costs and consent. After this a report of this appointment is also sent to you returning any original radiographs you have sent.
The cost of treatment includes all necessary appointments, all necessary radiographs, a permanent core and follow up appointments after 1 week, 1 year and 4 years. This ensures a complete comprehensive management of the treatment and the patient. Once the root canal treatment is completed Pavan usually provides a permanent core unless specified. All patients are returned to the referring dentist for the provision of the cast restoration. If crowns have to be removed or bridges sectioned then Pavan provides all forms of temporisation.

Endodontic treatment is one of our specialities at Crownwood Dental.
Endodontics is a skilled and time-consuming procedure. It is so intricate that magnification should be used to maximise success. At CrownWood Dental, we have invested in a dental surgical operating microscope. We also have the latest reciprocating rotary driven motor helping to reduce the incidence of fractured instruments.
Root canal are obturated using thermal obturation filling methods and also we use digital radiography to aid diagnosis and reduce radiation.
We have also recently purchased a Satelac P5 ultrasonic machine which has made finding sclerosed canals easier and assists in post and instrument retrieval.
