Root Canals Auburn, ME
Root canals in Auburn, ME are often the last line of defense when it comes to preserving badly damaged or traumatized teeth. Otherwise known as endodontic therapy, root canals repair a tooth from the inside, as opposed to patching over exterior areas of damage.
What Happens During a Root Canal?
Getting a root canal in Auburn, Maine is similar to a longer filling appointment. Except in this instance, we’re cleaning the inner nerve chambers inside of your tooth and root(s) rather than only a superficial area of decay. After your tooth is completely numbed, we access the nerve chamber to remove all of the infected tissues. From there, the canals extending down the length of each root are thoroughly cleaned and medicated. Finally, a filling material is placed down inside of the hollow chambers to seal them off and prevent bacteria from causing any recurring dental infections.
