The Root Canal Procedure

The root canal process typically takes place over the course of two appointments. Dr. Baldelli will begin by accessing the inside of your tooth, where the infected pulp lies, by creating a small window in the biting surface of it. Using special, small instruments, they’ll remove the infected pulp and sanitize the inner chamber of the tooth to ensure that no bacteria linger. They’ll rebuild the structure of the tooth using a substance called gutta percha, and finally, top it off with a customized dental crown for added protection and strength.
