Will the tooth be safe after treatment?
Yes, however as dead tooth is more brittle, it may be necessary to restore the tooth with a crown to provide extra support and strength to the tooth.
Why is root canal treatment needed?
No. A local aneasthetic is used and it should feel no different to having a filling done. There may be some tenderness afterwards but this should gradually lessen over time.If the pulp becomes infected, the infection may spread through the root canal system of the tooth.
This may eventually lead to an abscess. If root canal treatment (RCT) is not carried out, the infection will spread and the tooth may need to be taken out.
