Root canal procedure initially involves isolation of the tooth. This helps to keep it clean and dry during treatment. A small opening is made in the crown of the tooth to gain access to the pulp chamber of the tooth, much like the filling a cavity. The canal(s) will be cleaned and shaped before they are filled. A biologically compatible material will be used to fill the canals. A temporary filling will be placed in the access opening. Follow-up treatment includes contacting your dentist for a visit upon completion of our treatment. A written report along with an x-ray will be sent to your dentist. They will determine the type of restoration needed follow-up is necessary with our office, you will be contacted by mail.
