Root Canal Therapy
A root canal is a proven method to preserve a tooth that has become infected or abscessed. The infected nerve is removed and replaced with medication to counteract the infection. The canal is then filled in which weakens the tooth, and will then have to be covered by a crown.

Having a Root Canal
The dentist uses a local anesthetic for the treatment so you don’t feel pain and the process is a comfortable experience for you. After you are numbed, the dentist drills into your tooth to make a hole into the canal that holds the infected root and gets it cleaned out to be rid of all infection. Medication is then placed in the canal to be sure that no infection remains.
Next, the dentist will fill up the canal with a material called Gutta-Percah which is a rubber-like substance that is FDA approved for dental procedures.
After the canal is filled, the area is filled with tiny cotton pellets and then covered with a temporary crown. The temporary will stay in place until the tooth has recovered, which takes 2 to 3 weeks. During this time, a permanent crown will be created for you.
After the recovery period, a permanent crown will be cemented over the remaining tooth.
Most root canals require two visits: one for the canal procedure and one for the crown procedure. However, sometimes the canal procedure can take longer due to the issues with the tooth and the tooth’s makeup.
