What Is the Process of Endodontics?

A patient typically needs a root canal or endodontic therapy when there is infection or inflammation in the roots of the teeth. In this treatment, a dentist carefully carries out the following procedure:

Removes the infected or injured pulp from the crown and roots of a tooth.

After cleaning, the canal is disinfected, shaped, filled and sealed with a natural rubber-like material.

A crown is sometimes recommended as a separate procedure to the tooth to strengthen it.

Regardless of the type of tooth being treated, there are three stages or steps always performed as part of this endodontic therapy.

Access opening

Cleaning and shaping

Obturation (canal packed with rubber and cement sealer)

This process is always done in a clean and dry field so that the rubber dam placed over the tooth can be treated by blocking any oral fluid from the mouth (containing bacteria) from getting inside the tooth while it is open.

Call us if you want to share your oral health-related concerns with our team and let us know what we can do for you.
