It’s hard to feel positive when you are in pain, but here at Corner House Dental in Norwich, we can guide you through your root canal treatment process and in no time you’ll be pain-free and smiling again.
You will need root canal treatment if the pulp in your tooth becomes infected. The pulp is the soft centre of the tooth which carries the nerve supply and nutrients and it connects right down to the root. Due to decay or injury the pulp can become susceptible to bacteria and the infection can then cause a painful abscess. Treatment involves removing the infection, letting the tooth settle then either sealing the tooth with a filling or in some cases a crown.
If you need root canal treatment, your dentist will sit down with you and explain the process more thoroughly. The treatment can take a number of visits to complete, but you’ll be informed of every stage and have a clear idea of your treatment plan.
