Dr. Martinez will remove any inflamed or infected pulp, then carefully clean and shape the inside the root of the tooth. After she fills and seals the space, Dr. Martinez will place a crown or other restoration on the tooth, strengthening it and bringing it back to full function.
A common misconception about root canals is that they are painful. Many years ago most dental procedures were painful due to lack of anesthesia and ineffective instruments. Today with advanced technology and local anesthetics a root canal should not be more painful than getting a cavity filling.
