What is a root canal?

It consists of an intervention that is done to try to preserve a tooth that otherwise would have to be extracted. It consists in the elimination of the pulp tissue (“nerve”), which is inside the dental roots, to maintain the tooth and its masticatory function.

How it is performed?

Almost always local anesthesia is needed so you should warn if you have any allergy or indication for administration. During the treatment several radiographs will be made.

  • By means of a strawberry placed in a turbine, the pulp chamber is accessed.
  • The infected tissues are removed and the root canals are cleaned and prepared with specific instruments.
  • The pipes are filled with a material with suitable properties.
  • A temporary filling (filling) is placed on the crown of the tooth and replaced by a definitive one.
