We offer a wide range of dental services and Root canal therapy is one of the most common dental procedures that we do on daily bases. This endodontic procedure is designed to remove an infected/inflamed nerve, also known as the pulp, from inside the roots of your tooth to prevent the spreading of infection into the surrounding bone and save your natural tooth for a healthy smile. Root canal therapy has high success and is a good alternative to tooth extraction, but sometimes, if the tooth is badly decayed complete tooth extraction is the only option for the dead tooth.
Avoid Potential Issues By Treating Root Canal Now
In most cases, a root canal procedure requires one appointment, but sometimes it can require two or more appointments. After the infected tooth and surrounding gum are numb, a small rubber dam will be placed over the area to isolate the tooth and keep it free of saliva. Next, a small access opening is made in the tooth to access the infected pulp. Special dental instruments are used to remove inflamed nerve tissue and bacteria from the root canal system. After root canals are cleaned and properly shaped, the empty space is sealed with a flexible, rubber-like material known as gutta-percha. The access opening is filled, depending on the situation, with a dental filling: temporary filling, or permanent filling.
It is recommended to place a dental crown on the treated tooth to protect it from breaking and restore your bite to full function and a beautiful smile.
