Gentle Root Canals
Root Canal Boerne
A root canal is performed by gaining access to the canals by going through the top of the tooth. Then an electronic apex locator is used to accurately tell the exact length of each canal of any given tooth. An electronic hand piece is then used which senses the amount of force applied, to gently clean each canal. Once cleaned and disinfected, each canal is sealed and a filling placed. If the root canal is on a molar, it is imperative that a crown is placed to prevent future problems with the root canal tooth.
