All appointments start with a consultation exam. However, an emergency appointment can be made if you are in too much pain and can not wait for the next available appointment.
The doctor can perform a procedure which opens the tooth to remove the nerve, then packs the tooth with medication to kill the infection, and finally places a temporary filling. This procedure, called a pulpal debridement, significantly reduces pain and starts the healing process until you are able to return to finish the root canal.
If you are experiencing tooth pain, call us today at 512-722-6338!
