The Treatment Procedure

Our root canal dentist will diagnose your infected teeth to decide whether you need root canal treatment to address infected pulp. Our treatment starts with numbing your teeth to avoid any pain. We install a small shield around your infected tooth to make it clean, dry,and isolated during the treatment process.

Our root canal specialist makes an access cavity into the pulp chamber to place the anti-infection medication that kills bacteria and stops the infection. We remove the infected pulp from the pulp chamber to help relieve the pain.

After removing the infected pulp, our expert dentist cleans and shapes the root canal to fill and seal your teeth.We install a crown over your tooth to make it stronger and compact.
