What Happens During a Root Canal?

A root canal requires multiple steps that include:

  1. Receiving local anesthesia from a member of our trusted and highly qualified team of professionals.
  2. Isolating the tooth with a dental dam so that moisture cannot reach the affected tooth, and bacteria cannot spread.
  3. Cleaning out the root canals and removing the pulp chamber to eliminate decayed and damaged tissues.
  4. Washing out the tooth to ensure no debris remains behind.
  5. Filling the tooth with a biocompatible solution known as gutta-percha to reduce reinfection.
  6. Sealing the tooth from bacteria and taking impressions so that a new dental crown can be crafted.
  7. Placing the custom crown once it is ready so that your vulnerable tooth remains protected while strengthening over time.
