What Happens During a Root Canal?

There are many misconceptions about root canals, one of which is that they cause pain. While we cannot deny that you might feel some soreness after your treatment is complete, the goal of root canals is to remove the pain, not cause more of it. The reason for the discomfort stems from infected pulp – the center area of a tooth that consists of nerves, blood vessels, and more.

By isolating the tooth and creating an opening in its crown, we can go in and clear out the bacteria from the canals and tissues before removing the pulp. When finished, we can fill it with gutta-percha so that it creates a tight seal. After taking impressions of your tooth, we can have a custom dental crown created so that it fits over the vulnerable area, encouraging the tooth to strengthen and function well over time.
