A root canal treatment is always considered an effective and comfortable dental procedure. At DTLA Smile, we have saved many smiles with the help of this therapy. People viewed the root canal process as a painful procedure in the past, but now, it is performed effectively in a comfortable and relaxing way.
What involves in the root canal procedure?
We will begin by taking an X-Ray of the bothered tooth, i.e., severely decayed or infected one. We will numb the tooth to be treated using a local anesthetic. The dentist will place a dental dam into your mouth and create a small opening onto the tooth to be treated to access the pulp. The infected pulp is removed, and the cleaned area is replaced with a filling called gutta-percha along with adhesive cement to seal the canals.
At last, the dentist will place a permanent filling or crown to protect the treated tooth.
