Illustrations: Root Canal Treatment From Start to Finish

1. A Deep Infection

Root canal treatment is needed when the tooth's root becomes infected or inflamed through injury or advanced decay

2. A Route to the Root

The tooth is anesthetized. An opening is made through the crown of the tooth to the pulp chamber.

3. Removing the Infected/Inflamed Tissue

Special files are used to clean the infection and unhealthy pulp out of the canals. Irrigation is used to help clean the main canal (called lateral canals).

4. Filling the Canals

The canals are filled with a permanent material, often gutta-percha. This helps to keep the canals free of infection or contamination.

5. Rebuilding the Tooth

A temporary filling material is placed on top of the gutta-percha to seal the opening until the tooth is ready to be prepared for a crown. A crown, sometimes called a cap, is made to look like a natural tooth, and is placed on top.

6. Extra Support

In some cases, a post is placed to give the crown extra support.

7. The Crowning Touch

The crown is cemented into place.
