Endodontic Procedures

Procedures: Non-Surgical

Most root canal procedures are non-surgical, and involve removing the injured pulp through the top surface of the tooth. Once the infected tissue is removed, the canal(s) are cleansed and shaped to remove all traces of tissue and bacteria. Then a sterile, inert material is placed in the canals to seal the tooth and prevent reinfection. Finally, a temporary filling is placed in the access opening.

After the root canal procedure is completed at our office, your restorative dentist will usually seal the root canal access opening with a crown on back teeth or a filling on front teeth.

 

 

Once our root canal procedure is finished, we will place a temporary filling in the tooth to protect the root canal until you can visit your restorative dentist for a more permanent restoration. Please do not eat on the tooth until the permanent restoration has been placed. this will help to prevent the tooth from fracturing .
