Root Canal Process

First, our team will apply a local anesthetic to numb the area we are working on. Next, a small hole will be made in the crown of the tooth to give us access to the infected pulp. We will remove the infection and thoroughly clean your canal, then seal it off with a tooth-colored material to prevent future infection. If your tooth needs additional support, a dental crown may be used to fully cap it and restore its structure. The root canal recovery process is smooth and often allows patients to return to work or school the very next day.
