The dentist will access the affected tissue inside the infected tooth and remove all of it from the tooth. The dentist will remove the nerve ending in the process, which is most often the source of pain that brings patients to the dentist seeking help. This will alleviate the pain caused by the inflamed nerve.
After the dentist removes all of the affected tissue, they will clean the area thoroughly and fill the canals of the root with a special substance called gutta-percha to prevent any infection from returning.
Then the root canal will be allowed to heal before the dentist puts the filling or crown in place on top of the tooth.
A successful root canal therapy will alleviate the patient's pain and save their tooth.
