Root Canals Treatment Near You
Root canal therapy is necessary
To save a tooth when its pulp has been affected by infection or decay
Root canal therapy is necessary to save a tooth when its pulp has been affected by infection or decay. Root canal therapy involves the removal of the affected pulp, nerves, bacteria, and decay, followed by disinfecting and refilling the canal.
Undergoing root canal therapy is the best way to save a tooth that would otherwise have to be extracted. Oftentimes, patients believe that removing a problematic tooth is the best solution, however, extracting a tooth can be more expensive and cause future issues for surrounding teeth.
Root canal treatment is very successful, and a tooth will only need to be retreated on the occasion of a new infection.
What does Root Canal Treatment involve?
Your treatment will begin with your dentist numbing your tooth using a local anesthetic. They will then place a rubber dam around your tooth to keep it dry and clean. They will drill a small hole into the top of your tooth and use a series of dental tools to carefully remove the affected tissue, bacteria, pulp, and nerves.
After the tooth has been thoroughly disinfected, your dentist will fill the canals and seal your tooth with a special filling. In most cases, your dentist will place a dental crown over your tooth to protect it and prevent it from breaking, as well as restore it to its full function.
The procedures may vary on each patient depending on the circumstance of one's tooth.
