Our Endodontic Procedure

Endodontic treatment can often be performed in one or two visits and usually involves the following steps:

​1. The endodontist examines and x-rays the tooth, then administers local anesthetic. After the tooth is numb, a small protective sheet called a “dental dam” is placed over the area to isolate the tooth and keep it clean and free of saliva during the procedure.

​2. The endodontist makes an opening in the crown of the tooth. Very small instruments are used to clean the pulp from the pulp chamber and root canals and to shape the space for filling.

​3. After the space is cleaned and shaped, the endodontist fills the root canals with a biocompatible, rubber-like material called “gutta-percha.” The gutta-percha is placed with an adhesive cement to ensure complete sealing of the root canals. In most cases, a temporary filling is placed to close the opening. The temporary filling will be removed by your dentist before the tooth is restored.

​4. After the final visit, you must return to your dentist to have a crown or other restoration placed on the tooth to protect and restore it to full function.

​If the tooth lacks sufficient structure to hold the restoration in place, your dentist or endodontist may place a post inside the tooth.

X-rays are taken during the procedure to determine the number, shape and precise length of canals. This is important to ensure that all canals are thoroughly disinfected.

​Root canal treatment may be performed over several appointments to allow time for anti-bacterial dressings to disinfect the canals. The use of local anaesthesia during treatment ensures that the entire procedure is pain free.
