The Root Canal Treatment Procedure
If you want your teeth to last a lifetime, then you must take care good care of them through proper oral hygiene. However, there are instances that you may still experience dental problems like pulp damage due to accidental tooth injury or dental cavities.
With a root canal treatment, you can save your teeth and make them last a lifetime. A root canal treatment is a procedure done by a general dentist or an endodontist. In the event that you have damaged tooth pulp, you may need to go to a dental office more than once to undergo treatment.
Here’s how the root canal procedure is performed:
First, your dentist or endodontist will numb your tooth. Then, an opening is made through the crown of the damaged tooth to reach the pulp chamber. Once inside the pulp chamber, the damaged pulp containing the nerve is removed, and the root canal is cleaned and shaped.
After this process, the cleaned root canal is sealed with a rubber-like material. Antibiotics are prescribed in some cases. Your dentist will fabricate a crown for your tooth to make it stronger and improve its appearance.
