What is the Root Canal Process?

Endodontic, or root canal, therapy begins with one of our dentists removing the infection. We take the time needed to ensure that all of the diseased tissues have been eradicated. Then we clean out the tooth and file the interior until it’s completely smooth. We fill the hollow with gutta-percha to protect the tooth and prevent other oral issues. To keep your treated tooth strong and durable, the professionals at DeMartino Dental Group may recommend capping your restored tooth with a porcelain crown.

Sometimes, root canal therapy fails for a variety of reasons. When this happens, re-treatment might not be an option, but we still want to do everything we can to save your tooth. An apicoectomy may be recommended, which involves the removal of the root tip. This cavity is then filled.
