If you’ve never had a root canal operation done before and have one scheduled, don’t sweat it: the treatment is pretty standard. Here are a few things you can expect our dentist and team to do when you have a root canal treatment performed.

While performing the root canal treatment, your dentist will eliminate the tooth’s nerve from inside the tooth and the root after forming a gap at the top of the tooth. The inside of the tooth will be cleaned and treated with a germ-killing medicine. To ensure the tooth does not become infected again down the road, the dentist will fill the root canals with a rubber-like material and place an impermanent filling on the tooth. The impermanent filling will guard the tooth until a permanent filling or crown can be positioned, most often at a later date.
