ROOT CANAL

ROOT CANAL


A root canal is a treatment used to overhaul and protect a tooth that is badly decomposed or infected. It is the hollow part of a tooth that includes the nerve tissue, blood vessels, and other cells, also known as the pulp. Pulp sits within a space called the pulp chamber and this goes down into the roots of the tooth. The pulp chamber within the root is called the root canal. So, it actually means inside the tooth. During a root canal process, the nerve and pulp of the tooth are removed and the inside is cleaned and preserved.

If your tooth sensitivity that lingers, especially to heat or cold, or you have deep decay or darkened gums, swollen or painful gums, chipped or cracked teeth and Pimples on your gums or you have sharp pain when chewing or biting then you should consider root canal treatment.
First, we remove everything that is inside the root canal. Our dentist will make a tiny access hole on the surface of the tooth and eliminates the sick and dead pulp tissue with very little files. Then, our dentist will clean, shape and decontaminate the hollow area, using small files and irrigation results. The patient will no longer feel any pain in that tooth after root canal therapy since the tooth is dead. Finally, our dentist will add a crown or filling but till the crown or filling is complete, the patient should not chew or bite on the tooth. Once there is a crown or filling is done, the person can use the tooth as used to be.
This treatment helps to ease the severe pain experienced when the tooth is infected. The local area will be numbed during the treatment, so, you will not feel pain or any negative experience.
You should continue your routine care but it is important to take care of your repaired tooth. For instance, brush your teeth twice a day using fluoride toothpaste, clean in between your teeth every day, either using floss and try to limit sugary foods and drinks.
Without treatment, the tissue near the tooth will become infected and an abscess may form. If tooth pulp is not removed, it breaks down and bacteria begin to multiply within the pulp chamber and it causes infection or abscessed tooth.
