What Does Root Canal Treatment in Stony Plain Entail?
The first step of the procedure is to take an X-ray to determine the depth of the infection. After the X-ray, your dentist will discuss your options with you. Once it is fully confirmed, local anesthesia will be administered to numb the area of your tooth thoroughly. Even though it has a bad reputation as a painful treatment, perhaps the most painful part of a root canal treatment is the initial anesthetic injection. Next step is what is called a “Pulpectomy,” which means removing the infected dental pulp. After that, they will fill the gap with a particular material and seal it off. While it is possible to feel discomfort, the level of pain you will experience during the treatment is quite minimal.
