What Happens During a Root Canal?

When you undergo a root canal treatment, our goal will be to remove the infection in your tooth in order to prevent further pain and damage. Your mouth will be numbed during the procedure, which helps keep your discomfort under control; several patients in the past have compared it to what they might experience when having a filling placed.

After the necessary preparatory steps have been taken, we will make a small opening in your tooth. Through said opening, we will carefully take out the infected pulp. We will also thoroughly clean out the inside of the tooth (including the various canals) in order to make sure that no infectious material has been left behind.

After the cleaning is complete, gutta-percha will be used to fill the tooth. You will eventually need to have a crown placed on the tooth that was treated in order to strengthen and protect it.
