What is a root canal?

A root canal, or endodontic therapy, is a dental procedure used to treat a tooth’s inner pulp, which contains nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissues. When this pulp becomes infected or inflamed due to decay, trauma, or repeated dental procedures, it can cause severe pain and potentially lead to tooth loss.

What is involved in root canals?

Our dentist will conduct a thorough examination and take X-rays to assess the extent of the damage. A local anesthetic is administered to numb the surrounding area before a small hole is created in the tooth’s crown to access the pulp chamber. The infected or damaged pulp is removed, and the inner chamber is cleaned and disinfected. The dentist fills the pulp chamber with a biocompatible gutta-percha material. This material seals the tooth to prevent further infection. In most cases, a tooth that has undergone a root canal will require a crown to restore its strength and appearance. The crown is custom-made and placed over the tooth to protect it.

What are the benefits of a root canal?

A root canals eliminates the intense pain associated with infected or damaged pulp, allowing you to eat, speak, and smile comfortably again. This prevents the spread of infection to neighboring teeth and even throughout the body. After the infection has been removed and the tooth has been protected with a dental crown, it functions like any other healthy tooth, allowing you to chew and bite without limitations.
