Sometimes when a tooth is decayed, fractured or infected, the small deeper nerves of the teeth can become irritated and eventually damaged. The only way of saving the tooth is to fill the nerve and pulp. This procedure is called Root Canal treatment.
At KBA our main aim is to get you out of discomfort as quickly and painlessly as possible by cleaning out the root canal by placing a unique filling material within the canal to ensure infection does not return. This way the tooth can be saved and restored back to normal function.
Does this procedure hurt?
Once you have been numbed up, the procedure should be like any other and painless.
What’s involved in root canal treatment?
In root canal treatment, the pulp and nerve tissue are removed from inside the root canals. The canals are thoroughly cleaned and then filled to prevent any further infection. Root canal treatment normally involves two or more visits to your dentist.
