Ask your dentist: The internet provides a lot of information. Sometimes it is too much. The best thing to do when trying to determine what has happened with your personal dental health is to visit the office where the procedure was completed and request your records. The dentist that completed the procedure or another dentist of your choice can help you to understand what is recorded.

Yes: There are different types of endodontic sealers that are used in conjunction with gutta percha to fill a root canal system. Many dentists have moved towards resin sealers, but some type of sealer will be used.

Root Canal Therapy: "endo" implies "inside" and inside is where the nerve in a tooth resides. Endodontists diagnose and treat tooth pain from infected nerves. This is known as root canal therapy. It involves removing infected nerve tissue, cleansing and shaping the "canal" system, and placing a special filling material. They also do surgical procedures at the ends of the roots for stubborn infections.
