If you have a severe toothache this can be as a result of trauma or decay causing the nerve to react and eventually die. The nerve of your teeth may need to be removed and a deep filling called a root canal filling is placed. Our sympathetic team will ensure this is done as painlessly as possible. It really isn't as scary as it sounds.
Root canal therapy in Belfast & Hillsborough is required when the pulp or tissue within the tooth becomes infected. This can happen due to tooth decay, trauma or a heavily filled tooth. The root canal treatment involves cleaning and filling the root canals which will save the tooth and prevent further pain and infection. You may not experience any pain or discomfort during the early stages of an infection, however if your tooth changes colour and darkens that is a sign that your tooth nerve is in danger of dying. If left untreated, this kind of infection can not only be very painful, but can lead to a tooth abscess or even tooth loss.
