Root Canal 

A root canal is a dental procedure in that is used to save a tooth that is infected or damaged. During a root canal, your dentist will remove the infected or damaged pulp from the tooth and clean the inside of the tooth. This is done to prevent the spread of infection and to save the tooth from further damage or decay

Root canal stage one involves the diagnosis and preparation of the tooth for the root canal procedure. During this stage, your dentist will examine the tooth and take x-rays to determine the extent of the damage or infection. They will then numb the area around the tooth and create an opening in the top of the tooth to access the pulp. Once the pulp is exposed, they will remove the infected or damaged tissue from the tooth and clean the inside of the tooth to prepare it for the next stage of the root canal. After this stage is complete, your dentist will place a temporary filling in the tooth to protect it until the next appointment. 

Root canal stage two is an important part of the root canal treatment process. During this stage, your dentist will use a combination of medicaments and mechanical instruments to clean out the root canals and remove any infected tissue. The medicaments used in this process can help dissolve and remove debris, while the mechanical instruments can help to shape the canals and remove any bacteria or other pathogens that may be present. This process is critical for the long-term success of the root canal treatment, as it helps to prevent further infection and promote healing. Your dentist will be able to provide more information about the specifics of your treatment plan and what you can expect during the root canal preparation stage
