Root Canal Treatment
The root canal procedure involves removing the diseased tissue (nerve), stopping the spread of the infection and restoring the healthy portion of the tooth. A small hole is drilled through the top of the tooth and into the inner chamber. The nerve is removed, the inner chamber is cleaned and disinfected, and the canals are filled with an elastic material and medication designed to prevent infection. The hole is sealed and the recovery process begins.
