Root Canal

Root canal treatment is needed when a tooth becomes infected or inflamed due to a large cavity or injury that damages the root. The dentist will numb the tooth, then an opening is made through the tooth or crown of the tooth. Special files are used to clean the infection and unhealthy pulp out of the canals. The canals are then shaped for the filling material that is added next. The tooth or crown is then filled. Sometime a new crown is necessary and a temporary one will be placed until the lab can make a permanent one. Dr. Colton does most root canals in our office, although he will refer some patients to an endodontic specialist in some cases.
