What happens during treatment?
The infection is removed and the root is cleaned and filled to prevent any reoccurrences. After a period of time the tooth is checked for signs of reinfection and once clear it is permanently filled.
How long does the treatment take?
Most treatments will involve at least two visits to the dentist.
What are the alternatives?
It is possible to remove the tooth but it is always best to keep as many natural teeth as possible.
I've only got moderate pain do I really need this treatment
Although you may only experience mild pain initially it can become very severe and if treatment is not carried out the infection will spread resulting in the possible extraction of the tooth.
