Root Canal Treatments

Your teeth are meant to last a lifetime. Teeth are vital in esthetics, speech and chewing. Years ago, diseased or injured teeth were often pulled. But now, with better knowledge and advanced treatment options, many such teeth can be saved with root canal (endodontic) treatment. Root canal therapy can help you retain your natural tooth instead of pulling it out and replacing with more expensive implants or bridges. A successful root canal treated tooth generally requires a crown to protect it for years to come.

 

Procedure at a glance

Root canal treatment involves one or more visits. First, your tooth is numbed for your comfort. An opening is made through the crown of the tooth into the pulp chamber. The infected nerve or pulp is then removed from both the inside of tooth and the root canal (the space inside the root).The tooth canal is then filled with an inert non reactive material.

Sometimes, medications may be placed in the pulp chamber and root canal to help get rid of bacteria. A temporary filling will be placed in the opening of the tooth to stop saliva from getting into the chamber and root canals. Depending on the severity of infection, antibiotics may be prescribed. Finally, the tooth may be restored by a crown or a filling to strengthen it and improve the way it looks.
