What Is A Root Canal?

A root canal treats an infected decayed area located in the central portion of the tooth called the pulp.The pulp contains nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissues that keep your teeth healthy. Though the treatment strategy is similar to a regular filling for a surface level cavity, because of its location, the pulp is treated with special techniques and instruments. The decayed, damaged tissue is removed from inside the tooth and then sealed to avoid removal.

What Happens During A Root Canal Procedure?

At, Bakery Hill Dental, Skilled professionals use state-of-the-art equipment to remove infection and fill canals following numbing the tooth and surrounding tissue. The procedure includes removing the decayed or damaged pulp and carefully cleaning the surrounding area with special instruments. After the area has been cleaned, a sealant and filler will be applied to close the canal and help strengthen the tooth.
Lastly, a crown is installed on top of the damaged tooth to provide additional strength and stability. Following the procedure, a Bakery Hill Dental team member may recommend over-the-counter medications to ease any pain or discomfort you may experience post-treatment.
