What is a Root Canal?
A root canal is a procedure that has the purpose of saving your tooth. If you need a root canal your tooth may be badly decayed or infected.
Rather than removing the infected tooth altogether, there may be potential to save it with a root canal procedure. Because the original tooth is saved and remains in place for this procedure, the root canal option is stronger than any artificial replacement.
What does a Root Canal Procedure Involve?
During a root canal procedure, the infected nerve and pulp will be removed. Once the infected area is removed, the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed. When you are preparing to undergo a root canal procedure, it is also important to know that multiple visits will be required to ensure all of the infection is treated.
For each visit, the infected pulp will be cleaned and removed. A temporary filling will also be placed to protect the tooth until you see us for the next appointment. After the damage from the tooth has been removed, it is recommended to undergo a permanent filling or an artificial crown procedure to reduce the risk of fracture. This will help to ensure the tooth will no longer be an issue for you.
