The Root Canal Treatment Process
Diagnostics & Preparation
Your dentist will begin by conducting a thorough examination of your tooth and your x-rays to identify the cause of your dental discomfort. If your tooth is infected, they will assess the severity of the infection to determine if a root canal is a suitable treatment option.In the event that a root canal is necessary, your dentist will first ensure that the treatment area is completely numb, including the nerves. Before beginning the procedure, your dentist will discuss various sedation options with you.
Removing Decay & Infected Pulp
After you are completely numbed and comfortable, your dentist will begin the procedure of extracting decayed or infected material, starting from the outermost layer of enamel and progressing towards the inner pulp. Following the removal of infected pulp, the canals will be thoroughly cleaned and the area will be flushed with a specialized disinfectant to eradicate any residual infection.
Filling & Sealing
Upon completion of the cleaning and disinfection process of your tooth, your dentist will proceed to fill the inner cavity with a rubbery substance known as "gutta-percha". This inert material serves to provide support to the tooth and replaces the extracted pulp. Afterwards, your dentist will determine whether to restore the tooth with a filling or dental crown based on the extent of decay and the amount of remaining healthy enamel.
