1. Decayed areas of tooth are cleaned

2. Nerve in the crown portion of the tooth is removed

3. A medicated packing is placed

4. Nerve in the root canal portion of the tooth remains alive

5. The packing (and the tooth) is sealed with a crown

Note: I actually DRAW on these diagrams to demonstrate
how the tooth (appropriately selected-- upper or lower
molar or anterior) will actually be filled
