Root Canal Procedure

If you experience dental anxiety, we offer a number of sedation dentistry techniques to help you feel calmer and more comfortable during your root canal procedure. In order to numb the tooth and surrounding area, an anesthetic is typically used. Dr. Shen will then create an opening through the tooth’s crown and into the pulp, the soft center of the tooth that houses the nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue. Once the diseased pulp is removed, we clean and enlarge the root canal area. The root canal and chamber may then be permanently filled and sealed.

A temporary filling is placed in the tooth’s opening before your next visit. Depending on your individual case, the tooth could be left open in order to let the infection drain.

The inside of the tooth will be sterilized at your next visit to remove any bacteria. The root canal and pulp chamber are permanently filled to complete the process. Your tooth is finally restored to chewing function, which may involve a placing a permanent filling or dental crown. If discoloration is an issue, we can provide teeth whitening following the procedure.
