Root Canal Treatment
Root Canal treatment involves the removal of the diseased pulp along with the tooth’s nerve (located within a tooth’s root canal) The pulp chamber and root canals of your tooth are then cleaned, medicated and sealed. A dental crown or other restorative treatment is used to protect and strengthen the tooth.
Root Canal treatment is complete in one or two office visits, depending on the presence of infection and the required treatment plan. After restoration, the tooth continues to function like any other tooth. With good oral hygiene, the restored tooth has the potential to last a lifetime.
A Local anesthetic is applied to the affected tooth and surrounding area.
A small, protective sheet called a dental dam is used to isolate the tooth to keep it clean and free of saliva during your procedure.
An opening is made in the top of the tooth and your Endodontist will remove the soft pulp and nerve and then shape the interior for filling
The root Canal is cleaned, medicated and filled with a rubber like biocompatible material (gutta percha)
A temporary filling is placed, then a permanent restoration, such as a crown to protect the tooth.
