What Is a Root Canal?

The goal of a root canal is to remove all signs of infection from a severely damaged or decayed tooth. During your procedure, your dentist will remove the pulp, soft connective tissue, and nerves from your tooth and fill it with a safe, biocompatible substance known as Gutta-percha. Then, in the last stage of your procedure, we’ll attach a custom-made crown. Your new crown will restore your tooth’s strength and appearance.
