WHAT IS A ROOT CANAL?
When bacterial infection damages the tooth pulp, the root can be your only savior. This procedure involves drilling an opening in the tooth, extracting the damaged pulp through this access hole, sterilizing, shaping, filling, and finally securing the tooth. Depending on the seriousness of the infection and the length of the procedure, you may be given adequate sedation before your treatment.
After your root canal procedure, the tooth might require dental capping for safety. Now it is ready to continue working like your original teeth.
HOW IS A ROOT CANAL PERFORMED?
We begin by reviewing your clinical record and the procedure, including the benefits and drawbacks of treatment. Following that, we will respond to queries you may have. A topical anesthetic is used to make the anesthetic injection as painless as possible. Following this, you will be totally sedated. Now, our dentists will use a rubber dam to separate the affected tooth. The rubber dam helps to keep our disinfecting products out of your oral cavity and keeps the working area sterile. We remove all decomposition and, if necessary, place a dental filling. The infected nerve is then removed, and all of the nerve canals are cleaned. In most cases, root canals can be comfortably done in one or two appointments. This procedure has a higher rate of success.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER TREATMENT?
We will transfer the history of your procedure to your restorative dentist once we are done. You must stay in contact with their dental office for a follow-up restoration within a few weeks of completing your treatment with us. The type of restoration needed to save your tooth will then be determined by your restorative dentist. Endodontic patients rarely experience any oral health complications following routine endodontic treatment or microsurgery. However, if an issue does arise, we are always here to help you out. You must keep practicing good oral care habits to prevent further damage and decay.
HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?
The cost of this procedure varies depending on factors such as the severity of damage to the affected tooth and the type of tooth that requires treatment. Endodontic treatment is usually cheaper than tooth extraction and tooth replacement procedures.
