The root canal procedure removes a compromised nerve from a tooth, or multiple teeth, in order to save and protect the effected tooth.
Root canals are performed by an endodontic specialist.
The procedure removes a damaged nerve and perhaps additional pulp of a tooth then sealed to prevent an infection or abscess.
Generally a root canal can be handled within one visit but depending on the situation additional visits may be needed.
In some cases the effected tooth may require a crown and or implant in order to strengthen the tooth.
If crowns and implants are needed additional costs and visits will be recommended by the specialist after the root canal procedure is completed.
