Restoring Dental Health and Your Natural Smile

Root Canal Treatment

Dealing with a tooth infection or severe toothache can be distressing. Fortunately, root canal therapy also known as endodontics offers a reliable solution to save an infected tooth, relieve pain, and restore your dental health. When the inner pulp of a tooth becomes infected or damaged, a root canal treatment can remove the infected tissue, clean the root canals, and seal the tooth to prevent further infection.

Restore Infected Teeth with Endodontics

Your natural teeth are worth saving! When the inside tissues of your tooth, called the pulp, get damaged, often as a result of tooth decay or trauma, the situation will often present to you as a toothache. The procedure that is done to clean, shape and fill the root of the tooth is called root canal treatment. This will often require multiple appointments. The tooth that has had root canal treatment may need to be reinforced by placing a crown (a cap) over it to make it strong and fully functional. The crown protects the tooth from possible fracture and prevents leakage of saliva and micro-organisms into the already cleaned and sealed canal system. This ensures long-term survival of the tooth.

Though time consuming, root canal treatment enables retention of teeth that might have otherwise been extracted. It’s a painless procedure worth undertaking.

Frequently Asked Questions

Your questions on dental issues answered by an expert.

What is a root canal?

A root canal is a dental procedure performed to save an infected or damaged tooth. During the procedure, the infected or inflamed pulp inside the tooth is removed, and the canals are cleaned, disinfected, and sealed to prevent further infection.

Why is a root canal necessary?
A root canal is necessary when the inner pulp of a tooth becomes infected or damaged due to deep decay, trauma, or cracks in the tooth. If left untreated, the infection can spread, leading to severe pain, abscesses, or the loss of the affected tooth.
Is a root canal painful?
The perception of pain during a root canal procedure can vary from person to person. However, with modern techniques and local anesthesia, most patients experience minimal discomfort during the procedure. Any post-treatment soreness can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain medications.
How long does a root canal procedure take?
The duration of a root canal procedure depends on various factors, such as the complexity of the case and the tooth being treated. In general, a root canal treatment can be completed in one or two visits, with each visit typically lasting about 60 to 90 minutes.
hat happens after a root canal?
After a root canal, the treated tooth is typically restored with a dental crown or filling to protect it and restore its function. Following the procedure, it is important to maintain good oral hygiene practices, including regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups, to ensure the long-term success of the root canal treatment.
