A root canal Fremont procedure is necessary, especially if your dentist is trying to prevent an infected pulp from spreading infection and save your severely decayed tooth from getting extracted. If you’re wondering how the procedure goes, here’s the step by step root canal procedure:
Before the procedure begins, you will be given local anesthesia to numb the area that is going to be treated. This will help make the entire procedure comfortable and pain-free. Once the area is numb, a dental dam will be put in place to isolate your infected tooth from the rest of your mouth. This is done to allow the root canal Fremont treatment to be carried out in a sterile environment- free from contamination. An access hole will then be drilled through the tooth to allow tools and materials to access the pulp chamber and root canals to facilitate treatment.
The infected pulp will then be removed, and the root canals and pulp chamber are cleaned out. They will then be disinfected using antibacterial and antiseptic solutions. The root canals will then be shaped using tiny flexible instruments, so they can receive root canal fillings and sealers. Since the root canals are now ready, they are going to be filled and sealed using a rubber-like material called gutta-percha. This is done to prevent any debris or bacteria from entering the area and cause damage.
After filling and sealing the canals, a temporary or permanent filling will be used to close off the access hole. Then, the dental dam is removed. After the procedure, you will be given antibiotics to prevent any complications as you heal. After this, your tooth will need a permanent restoration.
