Root Canal Therapy

 

Endodontics is the field of dentistry that deals with the tooth pulp and the tissues surrounding the root of a tooth. The pulp (containing nerves, arterioles and venules as well as lymphatic tissue and fibrous tissue) can become diseased or injured, and is often unable to repair itself; if it dies, endodontic treatment is required.

 

Root canal therapy got a reputation of being a painful procedure, however, this is a misconception. Skilled and careful dentists are able to numb and treat a "hot" tooth providing the patient with a pain free treatment. Here at GDC we exert the outmost care to provide a pain-free experience to our patients. Oral conscious sedation is also available for anxious patients.

 

 

Reasons for root canal therapy:


  • Decay has reached the tooth pulp (the living tissue inside the tooth).
  • Infection or abscess have developed inside the tooth or at the root tip.
  • Injury or trauma to the tooth.
  • Thermal or Chemical irritation to the pulp.

 

Signs and symptoms for possible root canal therapy:


  • An abscess (or pimple) on the gums.
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold.
  • Severe toothache pain.
  • Sometimes no symptoms are present.
  • Swelling and/or tenderness upon biting.
  • Swelling that spread to the face usually associated with fever and hotness

       

 

 

 

 

     

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

What does root canal therapy involve?

 

A root canal procedure requires one or more appointments. While the tooth is numb, an access opening is made on top of the tooth and a series of root canal files are placed into the opening, one at a time, removing the pulp, nerve tissue, and bacteria. If tooth decay is present, it will also be removed with special dental instruments.

 

Once the tooth is thoroughly cleaned, it will be sealed with either a permanent filling or, if additional appointments are needed, a temporary filling will be placed.

 

At the next appointment, usually a week later, the roots and the inside cavity of the tooth will be filled and sealed with special dental materials. A filling will be placed to cover the opening on top of the tooth. In addition, all teeth that have root canal treatment should have a crown (cap) placed. This will protect the tooth and prevent it from breaking, and restore it to its full function.

 

After treatment, your tooth may still be sensitive, but this will subside as the inflammation diminishes and the tooth has healed.

 

You will be given care instructions after each appointment. Good oral hygiene practices and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your root canal treatment.
