  • Taking some x-rays so that we can get a clear picture of the area where we will be working. This will give us a good idea of the surrounding bone and the tissues that are up against the tooth.
  • Before we begin, we’ll also numb the area around the tooth so that you don’t feel any discomfort during the procedure.


Keep in mind the area around the root canal might feel a little sensitive for a short time afterwards. That’s to be expected and is considered a normal part of our Laguna Woods root canal service.
