Root Canal Procedure in One Visit
If a filling or crown cannot relieve the problem, a root canal is required. When decay reaches deep within the tooth into the nerve and blood vessels, an infection may start, leading to increased sensitivity and pain. The infection will destroy the tooth and promote bone degradation in the surrounding area. The root canal therapy can prevent you from experiencing these problems if the problem is detected on time.
The dentist can extract the compromised pulp from deep within the channel of your tooth during a root canal which is replaced by a strong inert material. For a root canal, the final step is to place a crown over the tooth. The root canal treatment can be performed in a single visit with today's technologies and dentistry.
