A rubber dam (a sheet of rubber ) is usually placed over the affected tooth to isolate it and keep it free from saliva. The endodontist makes an opening through the back of front tooth or the crown of molar or premolar to remove the infected pulp. Next the pulp chamber and root canals are cleaned and shaped with the help of instruments and chemicals to make them infection free. Then the root canal is filled with gutta percha material and is sealed in place with suitable cement.
