The tooth is numbed. Then the rubber dam is applied. All decay and weakened enamel is removed from the tooth. The root space is cleaned out and then filled with special materials which allow the tooth to heal.
A metal/plastic band may be placed around the tooth to help produce a filling of satisfactory shape. The filling used is often temporary until it is reasonably certain that the tooth has recovered, after about six months.
If you have any questions about Root Fillings, please call Philip Lewis on 01983 759567.
