How is root canal therapy performed?

Root canals are performed by numbing the tooth very well, making a small opening in the top of the tooth, and cleaning out the infected nerve inside of the tooth. The root stays in place and a hollow tube or “canal” is left in the tooth at the end which is then filled with an inert filling material.
