Root Canal Treatments
Sometimes when a tooth has deep decay or after deep and extensive fillings, the living tissue in the middle of the tooth (pulp tissue) becomes infected and painful. Unless the tooth is badly broken down, it is best to save the tooth with root canal treatment.
Root canal treatment, when performed in a gentle and considerate manner, should be pain free and good way to keep the tooth and avoid unnecessary extraction.
Under local anaesthesia, the infected pulp tissue is gently removed and the inner surfaces of the tooth cleaned and disinfected. The tooth will then be pain-free and the internal root canals of the tooth can be sealed back up and tooth restored.
Root canal treatments should not be painful during the procedure and here at Abel & David Wan Dental Practice Forest Lake we make sure patients are pain free during all procedures as that is how it should be once the tooth is numbed properly.
