The Process of Getting a Root Canal
The root canal procedure is rather simple and typically takes place over the course of two appointments. During the first, one of our experienced dentists will create an access window in the biting surface of your tooth so they can view the infected pulp. They’ll then remove the bundle of infected nerves and sanitize the area to make sure that no bacteria get sealed inside of it. To rebuild the structure of the tooth, they’ll fill it with a putty-like substance called gutta percha. Finally, once your permanent crown is crafted, we’ll call you back in for your final appointment to place it on your treated tooth, providing it with added strength and protection so you can continue using it as you normally would.
