What Happens During a Root Canal?
A root canal is typically a two-step process. During the first part, Dr. Samaratunga will administer a local anesthetic to the affected area, making it go completely numb. This way, you won’t have to feel an ounce of discomfort throughout the process. We’ll access the inner portion of your tooth, where the infected pulp is hidden, and remove it. After sanitizing the inner chamber of your tooth, we’ll rebuild its structure using a special substance called gutta percha. Finally, during the last part of the process, we’ll place a custom-crafted dental crown over the top of it to provide it with added strength and protection, allowing you to continue using it as you normally would.
