- Treatment Overview
When there is a crack in a tooth, it has taken a knock, it is badly decayed or discoloured or perhaps it has just broken down too many times, the tooth will need a root filling.
A tooth needing a root filling may be painful and agonisingly so, or you may have little or no feeling from the tooth. This is all because of what is happening to the nerve and blood supply to the tooth.
Root fillings have a bad reputation for being painful. When managed correctly, a root filling should be just as pain free as any other procedure under local anaesthetic.
Teeth with root fillings are quite brittle by nature and most need to be protected with a crown.
