How Does Root Canal Therapy Work?

Animation of the inside of a tooth

Inside every tooth, there is a soft inner tissue that’s better known as the pulp. When the pulp is exposed to harmful bacteria because of advanced decay or a serious injury, it can become infected – this is where root canal therapy comes in. Our doctors will use special instruments to enter the damaged tooth from the top, clear away out the diseased pulp, and replace it with a biocompatible substitute before sealing the structure again to minimize the risk of further harm. As a final touch, we cap the tooth with a custom-made dental crown to restore its appearance and ability to function.
