Root canal therapy is a procedure that is performed to treat inflammation of the nerve tissue present inside the tooth, the dental pulp. During the root canal procedure, Dr. Syeda Amina R. Bukhari. D.D.S will gain access into the tooth’s interior and remove the pulp tissue by using specialized instruments. Don’t worry, you won’t feel any pain during this procedure, as it will be performed under the effect of local anesthesia. At Sherwood Forest Dental, we recommend that teeth that have undergone root canal treatment should be reinforced with a crown, as they tend to become weak and brittle after the procedure.
