[00:00:02.520] A root canal is a procedure in which we remove the affected nerve, [00:00:10.560] which can be painful to the patient. [00:00:13.560] We basically remove the nerve from the crown portion [00:00:18.280] and the root portion of the tooth. [00:00:20.840] And then that space is filled with a special material called gutta-percha, [00:00:28.640] which will enable the tooth to survive for years. [00:00:33.320] What makes root canals special here is that we use the latest technology, [00:00:37.480] and we make sure patients are comfortable throughout the procedure. [00:00:41.640] Some patients have said after a root canal, [00:00:44.240] "I was expecting this procedure to be painful, [00:00:46.600] "but it was actually very comfortable."
