What can I expect with my Las Vegas root canal treatment?
To gain access to the roots of the tooth, the endodontist creates a small opening in the top of the tooth. Utilizing specialized equipment, he removes the decayed pulp. The tooth is then prepared for the next stage of the root canal treatment, which will not take place until your next visit.
When you return, the endodontist fills the opening where he has extracted the damaged pulp tissue. Finally, he seals the opening of the tooth to prevent future infection.
