There are Chances that you or a family member have been told that a root canal is necessary to save a tooth. Or perhaps root canal therapy is already underway. In either case, it’s important that you understand what will happen during root canal treatment and why this procedure is necessary to save the tooth.

What Is Root Canal Therapy?

Root canal therapy (endodontics) treats disorders of the nerve (pulp) of the tooth. It used to be that a tooth with a diseased or infected nerve had to be removed. In 95 percent of these cases today, however, this is no longer true. We believe in saving teeth (instead of removing them) and we will make every effort to save yours.

Why Do I Need A Root Canal?

Trauma   a physical blow to a tooth or a constant striking of a tooth in the opposite jaw that traumatizes the tooth

Physical irritation   deep decay or a very large Regardless of the initial cause, the tooth pulp becomes irritated and an abscess (infection) occurs. Bacteria from your saliva grow within the tooth pulp, causing pressure and pain. In some cases the face may swell. Eventually the pulp dies, causing the bone around the tooth to be destroyed

What’s Going To Happen?

Once it has been determined (with X-rays and clinical examination) that root canal treatment is necessary, you will be scheduled for one or more appointments. It’s important that you keep these appointments, in order to prevent delays in treatment and healing. It’s also essential that you take all antibiotics and medications prescribed, to hasten healing and reduce swelling. Should you experience pain that cannot be controlled with the prescribed medication (this is unusual, but a precaution) call our office immediately.

Here’s how your tooth can be saved with endodontic treatment.

  • First, the tooth may be isolated with a piece of rubber dam. This confines the treatment area and protects the mouth from bacteria and chemical agents. An opening is made through the crown into the pulp. (Your tooth may be numbed prior to this procedure.)An opening is made through the crown of the tooth into the pulp chamber.
  • We then carefully remove the diseased pulp. The root canal area inside your tooth is cleaned, enlarged and shaped. Then, depending on your individual case, the root canal(s) and pulp chamber may be permanently filled and sealed. In some cases, however, we place a temporary medication in the tooth to control bacterial growth and reduce infection.
  • A temporary filling is placed in the opening of the tooth until the next Visit. In some cases, however, the tooth may be left open. This allows the infection to drain.
  • At the next appointment we sterilize the inside of the tooth, to remove the bacteria. Throughout the root canal procedure we take X-rays to ensure that all of the infected pulp is removed and that the wall is inside the canal are smooth.
  • The root canal and pulp chamber are permanently filled and sealed.

Care Following Treatment

Discoloration:You may notice that your endodontically treated tooth (particularly a front tooth) has undergone a change in color. While this is of no great medical concern, you may be interested in having the tooth bleached. Be sure to ask us about tooth bleaching.

Brittleness:A non-vital (endodontically treated) tooth is more brittle than a vital one, and is more susceptible to fracture. Therefore, we frequently recommend that your root canal tooth be crowned (capped) following treatment. Please ask us if this is appropriate in your case
