Root canal treatment, also known as endodontics, is a common procedure to remove infected or damaged tissue inside the tooth. While many other dental clinics may require multiple visits to complete a root canal treatment, we are proud to be able to offer this procedure in just one visit.
The root canal is the inner part of the tooth that contains blood vessels, nerves, and other delicate tissues. If the pulp in this area becomes exposed and infected, it can cause severe pain and may require root canal treatment to prevent the infection from worsening.
During the procedure, our experienced dentists will numb the tooth and surrounding gum with anesthetics and use a protective sheet called a dental dam to keep the tooth clean. They will then make an opening in the tooth’s crown and use advanced technology to remove the infected tissue from the pulp chamber and root canals.
Once the root canals have been cleaned and shaped, they will be filled with a biocompatible material and sealed to prevent bacteria from entering. Finally, a permanent crown will be placed to restore the function and appearance of the tooth.
