If you’ve never had a root canal service before and have one scheduled, don’t sweat it: the process is pretty straightforward. Here are a couple of things you can expect the doctor and team to do when you have a root canal treatment performed.

While performing the root canal treatment, our dentist will remove the tooth’s nerve from within the tooth and the root after developing an opening at the top of the tooth. The inside of the tooth will then be cleaned and possibly treated with a germ-killing medicine. To make sure the tooth does not become infected again down the road, our team will fill the root canals with a rubber-like material and place a temporary filling on the tooth. The impermanent filling will guard the tooth until a permanent filling or crown can be seated, normally at a later date.
