Here at Precision Dental, we offer root canal fillings as a treatment for tooth infection or abscess, as an effective alternative to tooth extraction.
DO ROOT CANAL FILLINGS HURT?
We carry out root canal treatment under local anaesthetic, so rest assured you won’t feel any pain at all during the procedure. Once the root canal has been sealed, you’ll no longer suffer with toothache and will be able to eat, talk and smile in total comfort.
If you’re struggling with tooth pain, there’s no need to suffer in silence. Our team of dedicated, friendly and professional dentists are here to soothe your pain in a gentle, calming environment. Get in touch today to see how we can help you get your smile back.
THE ROOT CANAL PROCEDURE
Infections in the tooth can cause a lot of pain, so it’s essential to get treatment as soon as you can if you’re suffering. Our gentle dentists know how daunting dental treatment can be; they are on hand to make sure you always feel at ease when you visit Precision Dental.
Root canal treatment is carried out over a series of appointments. The first step in placing a root canal filling is to remove the pulp from the infected tooth. This is done using local anaesthetic, so you won’t feel a thing. We’ll then clean the root canals and get them ready for the filling.
Once the root canal has been filled with a special material known as gutta percha, we may need to restore your tooth with a larger filling or dental crown.
