Root Canal is a procedure where the dentist will take an x-ray showing the number of roots of the teeth and also shows any infection round the specific area. To keep the Root Canal dry during treatment the dentist may keep and thin sheet if rubber around the tooth. Local anesthetic is given, the dentist will then use a narrow file to remove any of the dead pulp from the core of the tooth. At this point, the dentist may put in a temporary filling and possibly also give you antibiotics if any infection has spread beyond the tooth. If so, you will have to return at a later date, once symptoms have settled, so the dentist can complete the treatment. In the next stage, the dentist fills the root canal(s). A filling is then placed in the remaining cavity in the top of the tooth. Or, if necessary, a crown can be placed on top of the tooth, supported by a post placed inside of the filled root canal. Root filled teeth can become darker than other teeth, but bleaching can be used to make them look lighter.
