A Root Canal is a relatively simple procedure with little or no discomfort involving 1-2 sittings. Best of all, it can save your tooth and your smile. The treated tooth usually can function like a normal tooth after Root Canal Therapy.
The tooth is anesthetized and an opening is made through the crown into pulp chamber.
The length of the root canals is determined. Unhealthy pulp is removed. The canals are cleaned, enlarged and shaped with special root canal files and disinfecting solutions.
Once the tooth is free of infection, the tooth is filled with a special Root Canal Filling Material like gutta percha and sealed with a temporary filling
A post and core may be added for structural support. Usually a metal or porcelain crown is made for the tooth to provide further protection.
