Root CanalYour pathway to a bright new smile.
Root Canal TreatmentThere is no need to worry if your dentist or endodontist prescribes a root canal treatment to treat a damaged or diseased tooth. Millions of teeth are treated and stored in this way every year, relieving pain and having healthy teeth again. Inside your tooth, under the white enamel and a hard layer called dentin, you will find a soft tissue called pulp. This tissue contains blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue, which help the root of your tooth grow during its development. A fully developed tooth can survive without the pulp because the tooth continues to be nourished by the tissues that surround it. The modern endodontic treatment is nothing like the old sayings! It is very similar to a routine filling and can usually be completed in one or two appointments, depending on the condition of your tooth and your personal circumstances. Getting a root canal is relatively painless and extremely effective. You will smile again, you will bite and chew easily in a very short time.
How does endodontic treatment save the tooth?It is necessary to perform endodontic or endodontic treatment when the inside of your tooth (the pulp) becomes inflamed or infected as a result of deep decay, repeated dental procedures, defective crowns or a crack or splinter in the tooth. The trauma of your tooth can also damage the pulp even if the tooth does not have visible chips or cracks. If the inflammation or infection of the pulp is not treated, it can cause pain or cause an abscess. When undergoing root canal treatment or other endodontic treatment, the swollen or infected pulp is removed and the interior of the tooth carefully cleaned and disinfected, then filled and sealed with a rubber-like material called gutta-percha. Then, the tooth is restored with a crown or cushion for protection and will continue to function like any other tooth. The endodontic treatment helps keep your smile natural, continues to eat the foods you like and limits the need for continuous dental work. With proper care, most teeth that have had root canal treatment can last a lifetime.
