Root Canal Treatment in
Root canal treatment is a specialized procedure that is performed when the pulp of a tooth develops an infection. This treatment has a very high success rate, and every year it helps millions of people save damaged teeth from extraction.
Root canal infections can be caused by a very deep cavity or a serious injury. The primary goals of root canal treatment are to remove harmful decay and deterioration, restore the structure of the tooth and encourage healing. The inside of a tooth consists of a soft material called the pulp. The pulp is extremely vulnerable to bacterial infections, but it is usually protected by the tough outer enamel. However, if the pulp becomes damaged, it will cause very serious problems for the tooth. The structure will begin to rot, and the patient will experience severe pain. Eventually, the tooth will die, and it will need to be removed from the mouth. That is why seeking root canal treatment early is extremely important.
Some of the signs that root canal treatment is needed include:
- Severe and intense toothache
- Temperature sensitivities
- Swollen lymph nodes
- Abscesses on the gums
When performing a root canal treatment, our experts will access the inner structure of the tooth from the top. We will then clean out the tooth and remove any harmful material. An antimicrobial liquid will then be used to flush out the root canals and clean the inside of the tooth. In order to provide structure for the tooth, a medicated filling substance will be used to fill the area. This will also help to encourage proper healing after the procedure. The final step is to apply a dental crown to the treated tooth. The crown will prevent future fractures or breakages from occurring. Once recovery is complete, the patient should be able to use their tooth normally.
