If you’ve never had a root canal treatment done before and have one coming up, don’t fret: the service is pretty standard. Here are a couple of things you can expect the doctor and team at our office to do when you have a root canal treatment performed.

While managing the root canal treatment, your dentist will get rid of the tooth’s nerve from inside the tooth and the root after creating an opening at the top of the tooth. The inside of the tooth will be cleaned and may be treated with a germ-killing substance. To make sure the tooth does not become infected again in the future, we will then fill the root canals with a rubber-like substance and place a placeholder filling on the tooth. The placeholder filling will defend the tooth until a permanent filling or crown can be positioned, usually at a future date.
