Root Canals: Not as Bad as You Think
Endodontics is the dental specialty dealing with the nerves of teeth and root canal treatment is one of the most common endodontic
procedures. While many patients find the very idea of root canal treatment scary, the undeniable benefits of the procedure as well as the use of modern innovations have gone a long way in removing this fear.
Once the tooth has been anesthetized with a local anesthetic, the dentist will drill into the tooth in order to remove infected tissue. Once the infected tissue has been removed, it is replaced with a sealant called gutta percha. A crown fitting is subsequently recommended for appearance and comfort.
