Save Your Teeth With Root Canal Treatment

Root Canal Treatment

What is it?

Root canal treatment is a procedure done to repair a badly infected or decayed tooth and serves as an alternative to tooth extraction. Root canal means removing the damaged nerve from the inside of your tooth.

When is it needed? Risks of not getting it done

Root canal treatment is necessary when the nerve tissue within the root of the tooth is infected by bacteria, typically due to a severe cavity. The infection creates an abscessed tooth, which, if left untreated, can lead to swelling of the face, head, and/or neck. If left untreated, it will eventually lead to the loss of the tooth. Additionally, bone loss in the surrounding region is likely as well as infection of the surrounding bone and soft tissues.

Sometimes a cracked or fractured tooth will result in a root canal treatment. Click here to learn more about cracked teeth and root canal treatments.

The Treatment

    1. First, a small access hole in the tooth’s surface is created.
    2. Next, the pulp, decayed nerve tissue, and related debris are removed from the tooth’s canal(s).
    3. The root’s canal(s) are thoroughly disinfected with antibacterial solution and then prepared (i.e., slightly enlarged and shaped) to receive the filling material.
    4. Lastly, the tooth’s root canal(s), pulp chamber, and surface access hole are all filled and sealed.
