Root Canal Therapy
Most root canal procedures are non-surgical and involve removing the injured pulp through the top surface, or crown, of the tooth and then cleansing and shaping the canal space to remove all traces of tissue and bacteria. Dr. Harris fills the canal with a sterile, inert material to seal the tooth and prevent re-infection, then uses a temporary filling to close the opening.
After treatment in our Richmond, Virginia office, your general dentist will seal the root canal access opening with a filling and possibly crown if the general dentists deems it necessary.
“A root canal is needed when the nerve of a tooth has become damaged by injury or infected by decay. This procedure saves the tooth and can help restore it to natural function.”
