The procedure for a root canal
 

A root canal procedure limits the infection and keeps it from destroying the tooth.  During the root canal treatment procedure, the dentist removes the inflamed or infected tissue, carefully cleans, disinfects, and shapes the root canal space inside the tooth, and then fills and seals this space.

It may take one or more appointments to complete the procedure.  A protective restoration should be placed after root canal treatment has been completed in order to restore the tooth to function and help prevent tooth fracture.

At Parker M Jarvis DDS & Associates Inc we think of a root canal as washing the invasive bacteria out of the root, filling it with a biocompatible material that soothes the area, then sealing it back up again.  Top it off with a solid filling or a crown, and you're as good as new.

That means you get to keep your tooth. And that's a good thing. 

For more information about how we at Parker M Jarvis DDS & Associates Inc can help you with your root canal problems, call us at (614) 882-5208, we will be happy to talk with you.
