The Patient Journey
At Shiraz Endodontics, we work tirelessly around the clock to provide our patients with the highest quality of care. So why choose Shiraz?
After treatment, your referring dentist will place a filling or a crown on the tooth to protect it. The Endodontist strongly recommends that you book in for a free review one year after treatment to check the tooth is healing.
Technology and Latest
The specialists at Shiraz Endo use state-of-the-art microscopes to enhance tooth visibility, enabling them to see into the roots of the tooth and treat them.
High quality digital radiographs enable our specialists to perform comprehensive treatment and easily discuss cases with patients.
We use specialist endodontic equipment within the tooth to clean, shape and disinfect the tooth. The tip of one of our smallest files is 0.06mm so this truly is precision engineering at work!

Yes! Root canal treatment is a very safe and effective procedure. With state-of-the-art technology and the latest techniques, the success rate of root canal treatment can be high (around 95%). However, for these success rates, it is important to have the procedure performed by an experienced Endodontist.
If you are experiencing severe toothache, lingering sensitivity to hot or cold, swelling or tenderness of the gums, or discolouration of the affected tooth, then you may need root canal treatment. Please contact an experienced member of our team to book an appointment.
After root canal treatment, you may experience some sensitivity and discomfort in the affected tooth for 2-10 days. This is normal and can usually be relieved with over-the-counter painkillers. However, if the discomfort persists for more than a week or becomes severe, you should contact an experienced member of our team.
What Our Patients Say
I just want to say thank you for making me feel at ease last Friday during my Re-Root Canal. I can’t actually believe how pain-free it was so thank you for getting me through it.
“I would like to apologise for getting a little emotional when I recently attended your practise. I was so grateful and appreciative for all your efforts and the hard work you carried out. You cannot imagine what it means to me. I would like to wish you and your team a very happy, peaceful and prosperous new year. Once again, many thanks and best wishes.”
Overall great experience with Dr. Nida at Shiraz Endodontics. She was very knowledgeable, professional, and explained everything clearly. She did a thorough oral examination on my molar, and I felt at ease during the consultation. The practice itself is conveniently located within Solihull, with onsite car park. I highly recommend Dr. Nida to anyone who needs an endodontist in the Midlands.
