What Does a Root Canal Actually Entail?

If a tooth has developed an infection in the pulp, which is where the nerve of the tooth lies, a root canal is needed to remove that infection and clean the tooth of all bacteria. To start, Dr. Leon numbs the mouth of all feeling to ensure comfort, then creates a small hole in the top portion of the tooth. This allows him to access the inner area of the tooth and remove the diseased and damaged pulp. Next, he cleans and sanitizes the tooth and closes it with a filling known as gutta percha. After treatment, which typically takes just one appointment, you should start to feel relief right away. Once completed, the tooth should both look and function normally once again.
