The Root Canal Procedure

During a root canal, our goal is to remove the infected pulp inside of your tooth to stop your pain and keep toxins from spreading and causing additional damage to your smile. First, we’ll access the inside of your tooth by creating a small window in the biting surface of it. We will use a special gadget to remove the infected pulp and sanitize the inner chamber to make sure that no bacteria are left to linger. To protect the vulnerable treated area, we’ll then fill it in with a substance called gutta percha and top it off with a customized dental crown for added protection and strength. Many patients who get root canals go on to continue enjoying their natural treated tooth for the rest of their lives.

Why Do You Need
a Root Canal?

We typically suggest a root canal if our patients have an infected tooth. This may occur when an untreated cavity carves out a path to the vulnerable inner chamber of the tooth where the pulp is located. That means that harmful oral bacteria can access this cluster of nerves and soft tissue, aggravating and infecting it, which is why many patients experience severe toothaches. If it’s not treated in a timely manner, the infection can spread to surrounding bone and even other areas of the body.
