What Does Root Canal Therapy Involve?
First, the tooth will be numbed, and a rubber dam will be placed around the tooth. This keeps the area dry and free from saliva. Second, an opening will be made on top of the tooth and a series of root canal files will be gently placed into the opening one at a time. This will remove the pulp, nerve tissues, and bacteria. At this point, we can also remove tooth decay with specialized dental tools before finally sealing the tooth with a filling. If more appointments are needed, then we will use a temporary filling.
