A root canal is a dental procedure that is used to remove diseased pulp tissue from inside the tooth. The narrow channels beneath the pulp chamber in the inner part of the tooth are hollowed out and cleaned, and the roots are filed with flexible nickel titanium files.
A root canal procedure involves tooth disinfection and the removal of all debris (nerve tissue, lymph tissue, blood tissue, bacteria and infection) from the coronal pulp chamber and its associated canals. Once an affected tooths canals are sufficiently cleansed and shaped, they are filled with materials designed to prevent pain and infection from recurring.
Although this procedure sometimes sounds invasive, it is relatively similar to any type of filling in terms of discomfort, but simply requires more time to complete. We ensure our clients are comfortable, and unable to feel any pain this procedure might cause during the process.
