Know more about pulp treatment
- Pulp treatment requires a few visits to complete. Remember to follow the appointment times!
- If the temporary filling material comes off before scheduled dental appointment, you should go back to the dental clinic and have a refill of material to avoid infection caused by bacteria in the saliva
- Local anaesthesia may be required during the treatment. Remember not to bite your lips or tongue before the anaesthesia has worn off
