To provide you with a painless and comfortable experience, small amount of anesthetic will be placed to gently numb a concentrated area of your mouth. A sheet of synthetic material called the “rubber dam” will be placed around the tooth to isolate it, thus keeping it clean and dry during treatment. The procedure consists of removing the inflamed or infected pulp, carefully cleaning and shaping the inside of the canals, and filling and sealing the tooth. Most treatments are completed in just a single visit. Occasionally, 2 or 3 appointments are necessary depending on the degree of infection/inflammation and treatment difficulty.
