About Root Canal Treatment
If your teeth experience sensitivity while eating food, you may have a pulp infection. Consult your dentist regarding endodontic treatment or root canal treatment. A tooth infection can be very hurtful and if left untreated, the infection can damage the nerves of the tooth and you might require removal. We always make an effort to rescue the tooth with a root canal whenever possible. After extracting the infection, we’ll place a custom crown over the treated tooth to renovate its natural look and strength. A root canal is an area in the middle of the tooth that includes dental pulp which is a soft tissue that contains nerve endings. It extends from the crown of the tooth down to the roots. The front teeth have a single root canal, but the chewing teeth have two or three. When the hard outer layer of teeth gets injured by tooth decay, root canal treatment may be needed. This lets the bacteria enter the pulp and also called nerve, which becomes a reason for extreme pain. At the time of root canal treatment, the dentist opens the tooth to reach the root canal and extract the infected tissue. Then it can be replaced with synthetic material to aid the tooth strength. Once the infection is eliminated, the tooth will be covered by a dental crown to rehabilitate its natural appearance and function. Are you concerned you might have a tooth infection?

What happens during root canal treatment?
We ensure that you have complete knowledge of the steps involved in root canal treatment so you are aware of what to expect. This treatment generally needs several visits to a dental clinic. Your dentist will check the infected tooth, utilizing dental x-rays to view the inside of the tooth and organize the most efficient treatment. Endodontic treatment is conducted using a local anesthetic to numb the region of the mouth being treated.
We can also talk about other kinds of dental sedation. The dentist will open the mouth to reach to root canal and extract the infected pulp using a dental drill. Once the root canal is cleaned and all the bacteria has been extracted, we will include synthetic filling material to seal the tooth.
This will also stop the possibility of the tooth being infected in the future. After the teeth have been filled, we will decrease their size a little and take an impression of the tooth. This will be utilized to create a custom crown. We will place a temporary crown to secure the tooth up to your next appointment. When your crown has been made, we will organize an appointment to bond it into place. Porcelain crowns can be color-matched to your tooth color for a natural-looking finish.
Is a root canal painful?
Many people associate the term root canal with pain and fear. There is no pain involved in root canal treatment that aids to remove the pain of a pulp infection. Previously, there has been pain involved in endodontic treatment, because dental equipment was basic.
