Princeton Family Dentistry: What to Expect in a Root Canal Treatment

Some problems may emerge from your tooth’s pulp. When the danger that lies within threatens to affect your entire tooth, you need to undergo treatment right away at the nearest dental practice. One of the treatments that may be recommended for this kind of situation is the root canal treatment or RCT.

What happens in a root canal treatment?
Basically, in a root canal treatment, the dentist will go into the affected tooth’s enamel to remove the pulp that has been affected by things like dental caries. To compensate for the now-hollowed chamber, the dentist will disinfect the tooth and fill it with a dental material before closing the gap with fillings. Dentists often recommend that a crown be installed on the spot to protect the tooth, as the tooth’s strength is compromised by the lack of pulp.
