Root canal treatment
Whilst tooth decay can often be remedied with a simple filling, root canal treatment may be necessary if your dentist discovers that your tooth’s nerve has been affected.
What does root canal treatment involve?
Root canal treatment involves entering the root through the top of your tooth. The root can then be sterilised, filled and sealed to prevent the problem from happening again in the future.
Your dentist will use local anaesthetic to completely numb the area and to ease the pain you are already experiencing from the abscess, decay or damage.
What to do if you are in pain?
If you are in pain, let us know and we will do everything we can to arrange an emergency appointment as soon as possible for you.
The emergency procedure may vary at each practice, so please read the correct emergency procedure for your local Damira Dental practice.
Alternatively you can ring the NHS Emergency Helpline on 111 for further advice.
