The Truth About Root Canals
Most of the time, root canal therapy is used to treat teeth that have developed an infection in their dental pulp, which is basically the nerve of the tooth. For this treatment, Dr. Dunker starts by numbing a patient, then she creates a small hole in the tooth. Through this, she removes the pulp, and then she fully cleans and sanitizes the tooth before closing it with a filling. This can all be done in a single appointment, and a patient will begin feeling better almost immediately. Afterward, the tooth should look and function like normal for years to come.
