Far from the horror stories that are told, Root canal treatment should be painless.
During root canal treatment, the inflamed or infected pulp is removed and the inside of the tooth is carefully cleaned and disinfected, then filled and sealed with a rubber-like material called gutta-percha. Afterwards, the tooth is restored with a crown or filling for protection.
We are very experienced with root canal treatment and we will try our best to make you as comfortable as possible, we understand that you may be apprehensive, but there really is no need. Root canal treatment is very valuable in preserving a tooth, which is the ultimate aim. It is much better to have this treatment than lose a tooth.
