Root Canal Treatment in

Root canal treatment, which is also known as endodontic therapy, is an advanced treatment that involves accessing the inside of a tooth to remove infected material. This process can save the tooth while maintaining much of its original structure.

Root Canal Treatment

Inside each tooth is a soft material known as the pulp. This soft interior is filled with blood vessels, nerves and connective tissues. Normally, it is protected by the hard, exterior surface called the enamel, but if a deep cavity or injury occurs, it’s possible that the pulp will become infected. This is a very serious, painful condition and can lead to loss of the tooth. Fortunately, root canal treatment can be used to save the infected tooth and preserve much of its original structure.

There are many signs that can indicate that root canal treatment is needed. These include:

  • Severe toothache
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold
  • Swollen and tender lymph nodes
  • Recurring abscesses on the gums

Before a root canal treatment, we will provide the patient with any anesthesia that they may need for the treatment. This can include laughing gas and a local anesthetic. Then we will place a rubber sheet, also called a dental dam, around the tooth to keep it dry and prevent the infection from spreading. The actual procedure begins by accessing the inside of the tooth from the top and then using special equipment to clean out any infectious material. We then use an antimicrobial liquid to flush out the canals of the tooth all the way down to the root. This will clean out the entire structure of the tooth. With the tooth clean, medicated fillings will be applied to help support the tooth and to encourage healing. The tooth will be capped with a dental crown to provide protection for the tooth. Once recovery is complete, the tooth will be able to be used in the same fashion as any other healthy tooth.
