When you stop in for a root canal treatment, there are some things you anticipate. To help you and your loved ones receiving root canal procedures, we’ve amassed this information on what you can look forward to when you receive root canal procedures in our office. This post covers the steps that the dentist will take before the root canal procedure.

To make sure you’re due for a root canal procedure, your dentist will do X-rays to see the tooth and surrounding bone. If any of your pearly whites are decayed enough, your dentist will opt that a root canal is the right option for your treatment. Next, our team will numb the tooth and the surrounding soft tissue spots so you feel little to no pain during the tooth removal. To defend the tooth from viruses and funguses that are typically found in the oral cavity, we will cover it with a thin sheet of latex.
