If an infection in your tooth is left untreated, aside from the sharp pain, it can also lead to an abscess and in some extreme cases, the loss of your tooth and even your jaw bone, so it is very important that if you experience discomfort that you believe may be an infection to this area, you contact your dentist as soon as possible.
Root canal treatment can generally be completed during one appointment at your dentist’s practice. The process begins with anaesthesia, administered by an injection to the troublesome area. After this, your dentist will look to remove the infected area of the root canal, before cleaning the area and putting in a filling to ensure no further infection is forthcoming.
A full and detailed after-care schedule will be discussed with you after the treatment. Because of this type of infection is is paramount that you follow the instructions outlined by the dental practice to reduce the risk of any further problems.
