Root Canal Therapy Steps

Last updated 4 years ago

If bacteria infect the pulp or nerves of your tooth, you may require a root canal. During root canal therapy, the infected pulp is removed in order to eliminate the infection and associated pain.

This video shows what happens during root canal therapy. Local anesthetic is used for a painless and comfortable procedure. Your dentist will clean out the infected root canals of your tooth with a file, then fill them using a special sealant material. A crown will be placed over the tooth to protect it and restore its natural shape and function.

If you have questions about root canal therapy and what it means for your dental health, call The Smile Design Center of Baltimore today at (443) 275-9821.
