Root Canal Treatment in Wilmington, NC

Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic therapy, is a dental procedure used to repair teeth that have internal damage or decay. During a root canal treatment, we will clean out the tooth’s inner structure, and flush out the root canals to remove harmful materials. We will then seal the structure with a medicated filling and cap the tooth with a dental crown for protection.

The inner portion of a tooth known as the pulp is important since it reaches all the way to the tooth’s root in the jawbone. When the pulp becomes infected, if left untreated, it can lead to tooth loss. During a root canal treatment, we remove the infected material in order to save the tooth from extraction.

During the procedure, we will use local anesthesia for your comfort. Ask about other sedation options as well. A rubber sheet is placed around the tooth to keep it dry and to prevent the infection from spreading. Special dental tools are used to reach the inside of the tooth from the top, and the infected pulp tissue is removed. Next, we will flush out the root canals using an antimicrobial liquid that will destroy harmful bacteria. When the root canals are free of harmful material, we will begin the sealing process. This is done using a medicated filling that promotes healing and provides necessary strength for the tooth. Finally, we will cap the tooth with a dental crown to ensure that it is protected.
