Root Canals to Save Your Smile

Root canal treatment is designed to remove diseased tissue and eliminate bacteria from the interior of an infected tooth. This will help prevent reinfection and limit the need for more extensive dental work in the future.

You don't need to worry if your dentist recommends a root canal to treat a damaged or diseased tooth. This procedure is routine and typically causes minimal pain. Its primary purpose is to save your natural teeth and relieve pain.

A root canal is a straightforward procedure typically completed in one or two visits, depending the condition of the tooth. With proper care, most teeth that have had root canal treatment can last a lifetime.

What Happens During a Root Canal?

Your dentist has diagnosed your condition via an exam and X-rays and has recommended a root canal. What happens now?

To begin the root canal procedure, your dentist will apply a protective sheet to the area to isolate your tooth. This sheet will keep it clean during treatment.

They will then open your tooth's top (crown) and clean away the infected pulp using very small tools. During this process, they will also shape the canals for easy filling.

Once the canals are clear, they will disinfect the inner chamber and fill it with medicated material to prevent infection and seal the tooth. We will then cap your tooth with a dental restoration, such as a dental crown.
