NON-SURGICAL ENDODONTICS

Save your natural tooth through root canal treatment

 

  1. Our doctor examines and x-rays the tooth. After confirming that endodontic therapy is necessary, he then administers a local anesthetic. After the tooth and the surrounding area is numb, he places a small protective sheet called a ‘dental dam’ over the area to isolate the tooth and keep it clean and free of saliva during the treatment.
  2. Our doctor then makes a small opening in the crown of the tooth, so as to access the damaged pulp tissue. With the help of a microscope, very small instruments are used to clean the pulp tissue from the pulp chamber and root canals and to shape this space for filling.
  3. After cleaning and shaping, the doctor fills the root canals with "gutta-percha", which is a biocompatible material usually a rubber-like material to ensure complete sealing.
  4. After endodontic (root canal) therapy is completed, you must return to your dentist to have a crown or other restoration placed on the tooth to protect and restore it to full function. Our doctors recommend that you call your dentist to set-up a follow-up appointment immediately.
