What Is A Root Canal Treatment?
Root canal treatment involves cleaning out the decay and pulp of a tooth that has been broken or infected. After the tooth is throughly disinfected, the tooth is filled with medication and sealed well with a core-buildup. A crown is usually necessary after to prevent fracture of tooth or re-infection.
How Is A Root Canal Done?
Local anesthesia is performed to numb the tooth properly. After the tooth is confirmed to be numb, the decay is cleared out, and disinfectants are placed inside the tooth and the entire canal system is cleaned use endodontic files. After the disinfection has been completed, the root canals are sealed with antibacterial substances, and then sealed with a permanent filling followed by a crown.
