Once the damaged area can be reached, the pulp (nerve) will be cleared by your dentist using specially designed equipment and the canal will be thoroughly cleaned. The canal will then be filled and sealed and the opening created to reach the root canal will be covered with a permanent filling and your dentist will then take impressions to fit you for a permanent dental crown.
