What is a root canal?
A root canal is a dental procedure to repair damaged or infected teeth. Deep decay of the teeth can result in pulp inflammation and infection, which creates a lot of pain. Common causes for damaged pulp include cracked teeth, deep cavities, or repeated treatment to a specific tooth. The root canal procedure involves the removal of the dental pulp within the tooth, followed by the cleansing and disinfection of the root canal. Then, clean rubber-like dental material is inserted into the canal and sealed.
What is a full coverage restoration?
A full coverage restoration is a dental crown, as it is a type of restoration which fully covers the tooth. A crown may be added in the same visit when it is milled within minutes by our CEREC MCXL Milling Unit because, as the treated tooth has lost its pulp, it cannot function as a living thing, and it will eventually weaken. The crown strengthens the tooth and protects it from bacteria.
