Comprehending Root Canal Treatment

It involves the repairing of the teeth that are infected or damaged badly rather than removing them. “Root Canal” emanates from cleaning the canals in the teeth’ inside. Initially, the procedure was very painful; however, with the current advancement in dental therapy and local anesthesia, there is little to fear in terms of pain. It is ironic to live with a decaying tooth as it is a more painful experience than undergoing a root canal procedure.

Why is it important?

The teeth constitute a dental pulp and a soft core extending to the jawbone, and the crown. The pulp houses the connective tissues, nerves, and blood vessels responsible for nutrition provision. If a tooth cracks or encounters a deep cavity, the bacteria can gain entry into it. You will incur serious tooth damages if left unattended. For example, tooth abscess or chronic infection, resulting in the death of the pulp, loss of the tooth itself, or the bone.

Root canal treatment should be done before the condition worsens.

Who requires it?

The Brooklyn City Dental staff are likely to recommend a root canal therapy in the following cases:

·         When your tooth incurs a deep cavity, loosened fill, or a crack.

·         In cases where the pulp gets diseased or injures itself beyond repair leading to the death of tissues.

·         Bacteria destroy the pulp after entering and cause further infection to the bone.

·         If there is swelling of ligaments about the tooth, thus weakening.

·         If the injured pulp becomes sensitive to low and high temperatures that result in pain episodes during chewing or perpetual throbbing pain.

·         If you incur a trauma orally, for example, the teeth getting hit.

Treatment

Our endodontic team will examine and evaluate your condition and share it with you before commencing your customized treatment. The procedure might need a single or two office visits, depending on your condition.

You will be X-rayed to confirm the damage and get a local anesthetic to manage your pain that might increase if you have an abscess. A rubber-like sheet (dental dam) is placed in the mouth to maintain the tooth’s cleanliness and protection and be saliva-free. Decay elimination is done via an opening in the enamel to access the pulp chamber. Small dental devices remove the diseased or infected pulp.

The root canal is reshaped after cleaning infection and drying. A temporal crown is put in the enamel for protection from saliva and food debris. The empty tooth’s interior is filled using a rubber compound or sealer paste followed by a dental filling.

Finally, the tooth’s normal function is recovered by crowning it. The crown could be of porcelain or gold. Following the needful dental hygiene, your crown is durable for life. After the procedure, the tooth can be sensitive, but over-the-counter medication can reduce the pain.
