Root CanalAn Overview
A root canal is a conservative treatment option for restoring health to a diseased tooth. The goal of a root canal is to remove diseased tissue from the inner pulp of the tooth to avoid the need for an extraction. Root canals are often a preferred treatment option over tooth extraction because they help to maintain the natural structure of the smile.

What is a Root Canal?
A root canal is a procedure designed to remove infected tissue from the pulp of the tooth. Often times the inner pulp of the tooth becomes infected when minor tooth decay is left untreated. Bacteria spreads, compromising the structure of the tooth. When the bacteria enter the pulp or root canal of the tooth, a root canal procedure may be necessary.

Root Canal What to Expect
Root canals are a general dental procedure that will be completed from the comfort of the Hamilton Dental Designs office by Dr. Julee Gil. Dr. Gil will ensure that you are comfortable and that you are fully educated on your root canal procedure. Once you are ready, Dr. Gil will begin the procedure.
Dr. Gil will drill a small hole into the tooth. Through this hole, Dr. Gil will use special tools to remove the diseased tissue. A high-quality grade material called gutta percha will be injected into the tooth to help stabilize the tooth structure. The tooth will be closed using a dental filling and secured with a custom dental crown.
Patients experience little to no discomfort during treatment and often feel a relief of painful symptoms caused by the infection in the root canal. Dr. Gil will provide you with detailed post-treatment instructions to aid in a comfortable and quick healing process.
