Root Canal Therapy

What is Root Canal Therapy? 

Root canal therapy is also known as endodontic treatment. Our root canal therapy protects your tooth that is extremely decayed or infected.  

Root canal treatment is necessary when the inside of the tooth (the pulp) becomes inflamed or infected. This problem can occur due to different reasons including deep decay, repeated dental procedures, faulty crowns, or a crack or chip in the tooth.  

During root canal therapy, our expert will carefully remove the infected or damaged pulp inside your tooth. Then, our Root Canal Specialist in Walnut Creek cleans the interior of the tooth. They disinfect and seal that, too, to stop further infection.  

This process preserves your tooth and eliminates the need for extraction to restore its function.  

Root Canal Procedure We Perform at Walnut Creek Dental 

At Walnut Creek Dental, a root canal procedure typically involves multiple important steps to address issues with the pulp of the tooth. Here is a detailed overview of the root canal procedure we perform: 

  • Our expert endodontist examines the tooth in the initial examination. They usually take a radiograph using X-rays to assess the severity of your issue.  
  • After the examination, our endodontist administers a local anesthetic to numb the area.  
  • We take a small rubber sheet, known as a dental dam, and put it over the affected tooth. It helps to protect and isolate the area, making it easier to keep it clean and dry during the procedure. 
  • Our endodontist creates an opening in your tooth to reach the pulp chamber. Then they will remove the inflamed or infected pulp carefully from the center of the tooth using small dental files. While the inner chamber is shaped to accommodate a filling.  
  • We will moist the area with different solutions to wash away any remaining pulp from here. Once the space is cleaned and widened, we will fill and seal it to prevent further infection. 
  • Lastly, we will place a dental crown on your treated tooth to protect it and restore its function.  

It would help if you remembered that maintaining good oral hygiene practices at home is essential for the long-term health of our treated teeth.
