What is a Root Canal?

A root canal is a dental procedure where your dentist removes diseased materials (such as nerves, blood vessels and other tissues) from inside a damaged tooth. Without a root canal procedure, your damaged teeth with will die and have to be pulled.

Our dentists will start by removing the diseased tissues from your teeth. The next step is cleaning and disinfecting in inner chamber of your tooth and packing it with medicated material to prevent infection. In order to finish the procedure your tooth will generally be capped with some kind of dental restoration, such as a dental crown.
