Root Canal Procedure

Root Canal Procedure

For root canal procedures, the patient will be fully anesthetized. A rubber dam will be placed around the tooth in question and then a small hole will be drilled in the top of the tooth. Using microscopes and fine instruments, we will enter the inside of the tooth and remove the infected nerves and blood vessels. We will then clean the area thoroughly and fill the spaces we have created inside the root with biocompatible materials. Finally, the hole that was drilled on the top of the tooth will be sealed with a filling. The rubber dam is removed, and the patient will be good to go.

Do You Need One

You should visit an endodontist if you have any of the following symptoms:

  • A severe response to anything cold (like a cold drink)
  • A severe response to anything hot (like a cup of coffee)
  • You can’t bite down on or touch the tooth
  • You are experiencing what we call spontaneous pain, which is a sudden severe episode of pain in a tooth with no apparent stimulus.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please contact your general dentist or present directly to an endodontist.

Dear Dr. Sinanan,
I just wanted you to know I had no pain or swelling after surgery last week. You’re an artist!
Hopefully I won’t have to see you again soon, but I have great faith in your skills.
Thanks again, Neil
