Root Canal, to Prevent From Future Toothache

A root canal is needed when the nerve of the tooth is affected by decay or infection. The tooth needs to be saved by removing tissue, nerves, bacteria, and the other decaying materials. The remaining space is filled with medication to restore the tooth.

At Brian S Kubo, DDS Inc., we use the latest medical technology for root canal procedures.

What Happens During Root Canal?

First, the tooth is heavily numbed and a rubber dam is placed, keeping the tooth dry from saliva. Next, an opening is created at the top of the tooth and the decaying material is removed. Once the tooth is cleaned, it is filled.
