The Root Canal Process
Many people are afraid of root canals because they’ve heard they’re painful. However, when completed by a seasoned professional, you have nothing to worry about! We’ll use powerful numbing medication and offer various dental sedation options to ensure you’re comfortable throughout your treatment. In fact, most patients are pleasantly surprised to find that getting a root canal is no worse than getting a large filling!
Once we’ve numbed your mouth with a local anesthetic and that you’re comfortable, the Doctor will start by making a small hole in your enamel to access the inside of your tooth. From there, he’ll carefully remove any damaged, decayed, or infected tissue and sanitize the area to eliminate any bacteria. Then, the tooth will be filled and we’ll place a dental crown over it to restore its strength and prevent future infections.
