Root Canal Treatment Q&A

What is a Root Canal?

A root canal, also known as endodontic therapy, is a dental procedure designed to treat and save a tooth that is infected, damaged, decayed and/or causing you pain. Inside each tooth is a pulp chamber containing nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue. When the pulp becomes infected or inflamed, it can cause severe pain and, if left untreated, may lead to the loss of the tooth.

When is a Root Canal Necessary?

You may require a root canal if you experience the following symptoms:

  • Severe toothache, especially when chewing or applying pressure.
  • Prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures.
  • Swelling or tenderness in the gums.
  • Darkening or discoloration of the tooth.
  • A pimple-like bump on the gums near the affected tooth.

The Root Canal Procedure:

Diagnosis: We start with a thorough examination that involves testing the tooth and may use digital X-rays to pinpoint the source of the infection or damage.

Anesthesia: Local anesthesia is administered to ensure you're comfortable during the procedure.

Cleaning and Shaping: We access the pulp chamber, remove the infected tissue, and clean and shape the root canals.

Filling: Once the canals are cleaned and disinfected, they are filled with a biocompatible material called gutta-percha to seal the tooth.

Restoration: In most cases, a crown is placed on the treated tooth to restore its strength and appearance. This is important so the tooth doesn’t crack and fracture. 

Aftercare and Recovery: We will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to ensure a smooth recovery. It's essential to follow these guidelines to maintain the success of your root canal treatment. Usually, there is minimal to no discomfort or post operative pain.
