What Happens During a Root Canal?

First off, it should be noted that the root canal procedure won’t be as painful as its reputation suggests since a local anesthetic will be used to help you stay comfortable. As for the root canal itself, it usually involves the following steps:

  • We will place a dental dam to keep the tooth dry.
  • A small opening is created in the tooth.
  • The pulp is removed through the created opening.
  • The inner canals of the tooth are cleaned and shaped as needed.
  • A biocompatible material is used to fill the tooth.
  • The tooth is resealed and, eventually, restored with a dental crown.
