What is a root canal?
When a tooth’s pulp becomes infected, a root canal is a straightforward procedure that can save the tooth. The pulp, a group of blood vessels in the center of the tooth, aids in the development of the tooth’s outer structure. Trauma to the tooth, severe decay, chips and cracks, or frequent dental operations can all lead to pulp infection. There may be obvious damage to the tooth or swelling, sensitivity to warmth, or pain in the tooth or gums as symptoms of the infection.
How is a root canal performed?
If you exhibit any of these signs, we’ll probably suggest a non-surgical procedure to get rid of the infected pulp. The damaged pulp is first removed, and the root canal system is then meticulously cleaned and sealed. Depending on the complexity of the required treatment, this therapy is typically finished in one or more visits. About 90% of patients who receive this form of treatment are successful.
To make you feel better, we administer local anesthetic. If necessary, we will also offer nitrous oxide analgesia. Most of our patients are able to drive themselves home after treatment and resume their regular activities without any discomfort. You will be notified at the time of consultation or if a problem arises during or after treatment if your tooth is not susceptible to endodontic therapy or the likelihood of success is low.
What happens after root canal treatment?
After your root canal therapy is finished, we document your care at our clinic and arrange for a follow-up restoration to be positioned in a few weeks. After normal endodontic therapy or microsurgery, problems are uncommon for endodontic patients. However, if a problem does arise, we are always on call to examine your teeth and take the appropriate action. Continue to maintain adequate oral hygiene to halt additional deterioration.
How much will root canal treatment cost?
The price of this surgery can vary based on the tooth that is damaged and how badly it has been damaged, among other things. Endodontic therapy is typically far less expensive than extracting a tooth and replacing it with an artificial tooth.
