Root canal procedures remove the infected contents of the tooth including its nerve and blood supply. Once all the damaged tissues are removed, the tooth is cleaned with temporary or permanent fillings. Before a root canal treatment, the area is numbed carefully to prevent any pain. Our dentist has a special training to perform root canal therapy and will make sure that your procedure is done with the most profound care to ensure no pain or discomfort is felt during the procedure. Any future treatment after this procedure usually consists of filling the spaces in the teeth and within the roots. The final step may involve the installation of crown to permanently protect the treated tooth.
