To treat the tooth an opening through the tooth is made to access the pulp. Using special instruments your dentist will remove the inflammed or infected pulp. Each root canal is cleaned, enlarged and shaped. Anti-inflammatory and antibacterial medicines are placed and left inside the root canal for a number of weeks to help stop the inflammation and infection.
At the next appointment, each canal is cleaned, dried and filled with a material called 'gutta percha', to protect the inside of the tooth and prevent further infection.
We may reccommend you have the root canal treated tooth crowned to improve it's strength and decrease the risk of the tooth fracturing.
