The Procedure for Root Canal Therapy
Typically root canal therapy is completed in two visits. During your first visit, your dentist will numb your affected tooth using a local anesthetic and then place a rubber dam on it to isolate it. Next, your dentist will make a small opening in the crown of your tooth to access the pulp and use fine dental instruments to remove it. Lastly, once the canal is cleaned, your dentist will fill and seal it with a dental filling. Your dentist will also take impressions of your dental structure to design a custom-made crown that accurately fits your tooth.
During your second visit, a crown is usually placed over the treated tooth to prevent it from fracturing.
