An infected tooth can be very uncomfortable for the patient. Left untreated, an infection may spread to the surrounding teeth, gums, or bone tissue.
Before carrying out a root canal treatment, your dentist will apply a local anaesthetic to ensure you remain comfortable throughout. They will then use a small file to clear infected tissue out of the root canal.
Once the infection is gone, the dentist will thoroughly clean and disinfect the canal before sealing it with a special filling material.
In some cases, they may apply a temporary filling at this stage and delay sealing the tooth permanently to ensure the infection is completely clear.
If you experience severe, persistent discomfort, you may need a root canal treatment. Call Smile Gallery on 01342 321 094 or click here to book an appointment.
