All appointments start with a consultation exam. However, an emergency appointment can be made if you are in too much pain and cannot 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.
