The Root Canal Procedure
classic dental Root canal therapy may be done over a number of visits, typically two or three, in the case of teeth with active or long-standing and extensive infection but sometimes it may be possible to complete the treatment in a single visit if the infection is of recent origin and relatively mild in symptoms.

The tooth is anaesthetized and opening is made through the crown of the tooth to the pulp chamber.

X-Rays are taken to ensure that the full length of the root canal is treated. Special files are used to clean the infection and unhealthy pulp and shape the canals. Irrigation is used to clean small offshoots of the main canal. If the roots are unusually shaped or there are other complications, Apical Surgery (Apicoectomy) is advised.

When the space has been cleaned and shaped, root canal will be filled with a biocompatible material. This is usually a flexible plastic material called "gutta-percha” ensuring that the root canals are completely sealed. Normally, a temporary filling will be inserted to close the opening. The temporary filling will be removed before the tooth is restored. If there is no sign of infection the tooth is restored with a permanent filling.
