What Happens During Root Canal Treatment?
Once you are cleared to undergo a root canal, our team of dental experts will administer anesthesia to numb the area and ensure you are comfortable. When ready, we’ll isolate the tooth with a dental dam before creating an opening at the top of the crown. This will allow us to access the innermost layer of the tooth and clear away all infected or damaged tissue.
Once everything is cleaned, we will fill the tooth with a substance known as gutta-percha, which will seal off the tooth, preventing bacteria and other harmful particles from re-entering and posing a threat. You’ll then receive a custom-made dental crown after a few weeks so that the tooth remains protected and steadfast.
