Gentle root canal treatments – no pain, plenty of gain
Patients are given a local anaesthetic for this procedure. Other more analgesic / soothing procedures are available where desired. We will not start the procedure until the anaesthetic has taken effect and you can no longer feel any pain. You may experience some pressure while treatment is under way when we remove the abscess and get rid of any necrotic tissue we find on the jawbone. You will normally not experience any pain following the procedure, although you may experience a slight throbbing sensation which will subside after approx. 24 hours.
