Root Canal – a procedure performed to remove bacteria and dying or dead tissue from inside the tooth in an attempt to save the tooth. After an xray, the dentist will administer local anesthetic. He will then make a small opening in the crown of the tooth and clean out the root canals. The canals are then filled with material to seal them. A crown is often needed to restore the tooth to full function.
