Root Canal: The Procedure

Root canal is a fairly longer process and may involve more than one visit to the dentist. The process involves drilling into the tooth to reach the pulp. The diseased pulp is then removed. Pre root canal procedures involve extensive imaging of the root of the teeth as well as the estimation of the extent of the disease in the tooth. The root canal procedure is generally done under mild anesthesia but in severe cases a general anesthesia is administered to the patient. The root canal is cleaned thoroughly and sanitized to remove the infection. The root canal is then filled and a cap is applied to it. The favorite material for filling after root canal is silver and gold but these days dentists prefer to use flexible plastic polymer. After care for a root canal includes proper cleaning and brushing.
