Root Canal Treatment!
Root canal treatment which is normally referred to as a ‘RCT’, it is a dental procedure used to treat infection at the centre of the tooth (the root canals).
This will be spotted on your x-rays at your check-up.
You will be given an anaesthetic to numb the area so the treatment isn’t painful.
* Pain when eating and/or drinking hot and/or cold food.
* Pain when biting or chewing.
* Swelling of the gum around infected tooth.
* Facial swelling.
* Darkening in colour of the tooth.
These are all signs of an infected tooth in need of root canal treatment!
