Root canals generally take one to two appointments, but afterwards, with excellent hygiene, many people don’t need further endodontic treatment.

- A Dark tooth, which indicates deep tooth trauma
- An acute bump, not unlike the appearance of a pimple, along the gums, near the affected area

Root Canal Therapy, Hanley Hills
The process of getting root canal therapy is a standard procedure and similar to getting a tooth filling. During your appointment, the dentist will give you anesthesia to make sure that you’re comfortable during the treatment. Then, utilizing special tools, the dentist will cut open the top of the infected tooth, remove the damaged soft tissue, and clean the area. After disinfecting the area, the tooth will be sealed to prevent further infection, and topped with a crown which protects the tooth below.
