What Happens During Root Canal Treatment?

While no two root canal cases are necessarily the same, the process of completing this type of procedure requires certain steps, which include:

  • Using a dental dam that is designed to isolate the problematic tooth and keep the rest of your mouth protected.
  • Administering local anesthesia to numb the tooth and ensure a pain-free experience.
  • Entering through the crown of the tooth and clearing out any signs of infection or damage, including the pulp.
  • Making sure the canals are thoroughly cleaned.
  • Filling the tooth with gutta-percha, which is a biocompatible solution.
  • Creating impressions to have a customized dental crown fabricated.
  • Placing the finalized crown over the vulnerable tooth after a few weeks of healing.
