Saving an Infected Tooth
An alternative to extraction, root canals are used when the tooth is badly decayed but still healthy enough to save. The Highland Hills dental staff will remove all of the bacteria and infection that has made its way to the inside of your tooth. We’ll clean the inside of your tooth thoroughly and then fill it with a hard material before putting on a crown. This will stop the infection and help protect your tooth from further infection.
Will the Root Canal be Painful?
An infected tooth is known for causing pain in patients. However, the actual root canal treatment will not only rid you of the on-going pain, but will also be relatively pain-free during the process thanks to modern anaesthetic. We’ll be monitoring your anaesthetic throughout the entire procedure.
Whether you’re struggling with a toothache or wish your smile was straighter, Highland Hills Dental is here to help!
