What Happens During a Root Canal?

A root canal is a treatment for infections in tooth pulp. By removing the infected tissue, it aims to relieve dental pain and save your teeth.

Given its nature, a root canal involves several steps. First, Dr. Spades will numb your tooth to prevent any discomfort. He’ll then drill a hole into it, remove its pulp, and disinfect the now-empty chamber. Once the tooth’s interior is clean, he’ll apply a temporary filling and place a dental crown over the treatment site after it heals.

Pulp Treatment

A pulp treatment is done on baby teeth to ensure they stay in place and fall out when they’re supposed to. There are two main types of it: pulpotomy and pulpectomy. A pulpotomy removes most of the affected tooth’s pulp, leaving behind any healthy portion in place. Meanwhile, a pulpectomy gets rid of all the decayed pulp.
