The Process

Before treatment, the affected area will be numbed with local anesthesia. A small incision will be made into your gums in order to make your tooth root visible. The remaining infected tissue will be removed and purified to restore your tooth back to its glory. A filling is used to seal the area and bleeding will be averted with gauze. Afterward, you may feel soreness as a result in the days after your procedure.
