Learn the steps that go into a standard root canal on an upper, front tooth.
The Root canal begins with anesthesia, followed by prepping the area, then drilling into the center of the tooth (the canal). Then the dentist uses a combination of hand and rotary files to clean out the canal and remove the nerves. Intermittent irrigation follows before sealing the canal and putting in the root canal filling (gutta percha).
Part 2 is the installation of a post & core for a crown.
