Having a Root Canal on a tooth is the treatment of choice to save a tooth that otherwise would die and have to be removed. Many patients believe that removing a tooth that has problem is the solution, but what is not realized is that pulling out a tooth will ultimately be more costly and cause significant problems for adjacent teeth.
A Root Canal requires one or more office visits and can be performed by an endodontist. The first step in the procedure is to take an X-ray to see the shape of the root canals and determine if there are any signs of infection in a surrounding bone. local anesthesia is given to numb the area near the tooth. An access hole will then be drilled into the tooth. The pulp along with bacteria, the decayed nerve tissue and related debris is removed from the tooth. The cleaning out process is accomplished using root canal files. A series of these files of increasing diameter are each subsequently placed into the access hole and worked down the full length of the tooth to scrape and scrub the sides of the root canals.Irrigant is used periodically to flush away the debris.
