Root canals are performed in response to teeth that has its insides damaged. This part of your tooth is called the pulp, and sometimes it can become diseased and infected, putting the entire tooth at risk. In order to preserve your tooth, root canals are performed, removing the infected pulp from inside your tooth so that the rest of your tooth can remain.
The procedure works as follows. First, we will use anesthesia to numb your tooth. Then, using small tools, we will access the inside of your tooth by creating an opening. Once inside, we will clear away the damaged and diseased pulp from inside your tooth before thoroughly cleaning and drying the inside. Finally, we will then use the appropriate filling to replace the pulp with material to ensure the tooth’s stability.
Depending on the condition of your tooth following the procedure, additional treatments may be necessary at your Lynnwood dental center to ensure that your tooth is as healthy as possible.
