Root Canal Treatment

Root Canal Treatment

When the inner portion of a tooth has become damaged by infection or decay, a root canal treatment can often be used to restore its appearance and function. In many cases, root canal treatment is the only way to save a tooth from extraction. The process involves removing the harmful living material inside the tooth and replacing it with medicated fillings. This restores the health of the tooth, while still keeping its original structure and integrity intact.

An infection of the root canal occurs when decay spreads to the inner pulp of a tooth or when the inside of a tooth or its root tip develops a bacterial infection. The symptoms associated with an infected root canal include:

  • Intense and persistent toothache
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold foods and drinks
  • Swollen and tender gums
  • Recurring abscess on the gums

When conducting root canal treatment, the first step is to place a rubber sheet around the tooth. This is done to keep the tooth dry and to help prevent the infection from spreading to other areas of the mouth during the procedure. Next, specialized dental tools are used to access the inner area of the tooth any remove any infected pulp, damaged nerve tissue and visible decay that is present.

After the unwanted matter has been taken out, the tooth is thoroughly cleaned and sealed using a dental filling substance. The process is completed by applying a temporary dental crown over the tooth in order to prevent fractures from occurring. On your follow-up appointment, this will be replaced with a permanent custom-made crown.
