What is Root Canal Treatment Like?

Posted .

If you’ve never had a root canal operation before and have one coming up, don’t fret: the service is pretty standard. Here are a couple of things you can expect our doctor and team to do when you come in to have a root canal treatment performed.

While doing the root canal treatment, the dentist will extricate the tooth’s nerve from within the tooth and the root after fashioning a space at the top of the tooth. The inside of the tooth will be cleaned and perhaps treated with a germ-killing medicine. To make sure the tooth does not become infected again in the future, the dentist will fill the root canals with a rubber-like material and place a temporary filling on the tooth. The placeholder filling will defend the tooth until a permanent filling or crown can be positioned, usually at a later date.
