What is a Root Canal?
A root canal is recommended when a tooth becomes too painful or extremely sensitive due to an infection of the internal soft tissue, called the pulp. The procedure may be done by a general dentist or a specialist.
How Root Canal Treatment Works
The first step after the area is numb is to isolate the tooth with a rubber dam. We use it to protect the patient from debris and fluids. It also helps minimize the re-introduction of bacteria into the tooth.
We make an opening in the top of the tooth directly into the pulp chamber. From here, we remove the nerve or pulp and the root canals are accessed. Each root canal is cleaned with special files that remove infected tissue and debris. Once the root canals are clean and dry, we seal them with a material called gutta percha that helps prevent future infections.
