The Root Canal Process
During a root canal, the tooth is numbed (with anesthetic), and a small opening is made through the biting surface of the tooth to access the infected material and relieve the pressure caused by the infection.
The infected material is then removed and the pulp chamber is sealed. Most of the time, a root canal is a relatively simple, one-visit procedure with little or no discomfort. The length of procedure varies depending on the number of roots and canals the particular tooth has.
The treated tooth is then non-vital, which means it is more fragile/brittle than a healthy tooth and a crown/cap is generally recommended to prevent it from fracturing.
Root Canal Therapy at V.D.S needs almost 50% less of chairside time and higher level of accuracy. Dr. Mehdian has always been using advanced technologies to provide more predictable result in most convenient and as a result of such philosophy our Root Canal Division is equipped with 3D X-ray system, Endodontic Microscope and the super advanced One File Endodontic Rotary machines.
