After that, the tooth gets filled and sealed using a rubber-like material. Finally, the tooth is restored to look and feel “normal” again using a filling and/or crown for added protection.
Did you know root canal procedures are painless? Pain, though, does come from the infection in the tooth. Therefore, a local anesthetic can be used to numb the tooth and surrounding area such that pain is minimized during the procedure.
There’s no need to be terrified of “getting a root canal” done at Crowley Family Dental of Sandusky. When you visit, you’ll be put at ease. The procedure will be explained so there are no surprises. And, ultimately, after the root canal treatment is finished, you will feel much better, and that’s a worthy goal!
