Root Canal Therapy

When decay reaches the pulp (inner tissue) of a tooth, infection and a host of painful symptoms can result, eventually causing tooth loss.

 

A root canal is the complete removal of the pulp. This relieves pain, eliminates infection, and preserves the exterior tooth structure. ​

What are the benefits of a root canal?

Root canal therapy eliminates the need for extraction:

​By removing infected tissue, the healthy exterior can continue to contribute to chewing and other functions. The remaining tooth structure is usually restored with a crown.

What are the steps to a root canal?

  • The dentist applies local anesthesia. 

  • An access point is created in the tooth.

  • All tissue is removed from the pulp chamber and root canals.

  • The inside of the tooth is disinfected. ​If the remaining tissue cannot support a crown, a post is inserted into one of the root canals for reinforcement.

  • The tooth is filled with a rubber-like substance.

  • The tooth is sealed.

  • A crown is placed to restore the tooth, if needed.
