Root Canal Procedure – Molar

Molar Root Canal

The inside of a tooth contains nerve and blood vessels. When bacteria from decay reach the nerve the nerve dies. The bacterial waster products and the rotting tissue cause an infection, swelling and pain. To eliminate this a root canal is performed. The tooth is opened up and files removes the diseased tissue. The inside of the tooth is cleaned mechanically and chemically. Then the tooth is sealed and is ready for a crown.
