What Happens During a Root Canal?

To perform a root canal treatment, we’ll have to create an opening in your tooth. Then we’ll need to take out the infected tooth pulp and nerve. After that, the next step is to clean the inside of the tooth and shape the inner root canals. The tooth will then be filled with biocompatible material and resealed. A dental crown might be placed for the tooth’s protection. To prevent discomfort during your root canal treatment, a local anesthetic will be used to keep your mouth numb.
