How Does a Root Canal Work?
When a root canal is performed, our team will begin by administering local anesthesia to ensure you remain comfortable and pain-free throughout the process. We’ll then isolate the tooth by placing a dental dam. After making an opening in the crown of the tooth, we will begin to clear out the infected areas and pulp before cleaning out the nearby canals.
Once we finish this process, we will fill the tooth with a substance known as gutta-percha. The tooth will then be sealed and ready for a customized dental crown, which will be created for added protection. Once put into place, your tooth will regain functionality and strength over time.
