Root Canal Treatment Process
When a tooth’s pulp becomes infected, it can cause severe pain. This is because the pulp contains nerves, connective tissues, and blood vessels. A comprehensive root canal procedure will enable us to eliminate the pain by clearing the infection. The entire process is completed while you’re under local anesthesia for your comfort. The process includes the following:
With advancements in dental care and anesthesia, most root canals don’t cause any more discomfort than a tooth filling. We help alleviate any discomfort by thoroughly numbing the area.
Once the anesthesia has numbed the area, the dentist will drill a hole through the tooth to access the infected pulp. We use special tools and antiseptics to kill any bacteria.
After the infected pulp has been removed, we fill the empty tooth with a dental filling. This will help ensure your tooth doesn’t become brittle and protects it from future infections.
Finally, we’ll add a dental cap to the existing tooth, further protecting it from decay. The cap will fit comfortably and should be maintained like your natural tooth.
