It is a common misconception that root canal therapies are painful and would require a long recovery time. But, this isn’t true at all. At our dental practice, Dr. Guster will make sure you have the most pleasant and pain-free experience with the help of our advanced treatment procedures.
The teeth have three main components, namely the enamel, dentin, and the central root canal. The root canal cavity houses the dental pulp, comprising the nerves and blood vessels responsible for nourishment and sensitivity. Infection of the dental pulp leads to a very painful and invasive condition, which can have symptoms such as:
Although the dentist would try to restore the tooth using restorations like crowns, fillings, etc., we may have to opt for root canal therapy if the condition is severe. It is often regarded as the last resort option of keeping the tooth from being extracted.
Treating a severely infected tooth would require the removal of the infected dental pulp. This is done by making a hole in the tooth to access the pulp and extracting it using special dental files. The dentist will use a highly powerful microscope and x-ray imaging to understand the structure of the root canal cavity before proceeding. The dentist will carefully remove the pulp, clean the root canal cavity, and shape the pulp canals. A jet of water is used to wash away the removed debris.
The entire procedure would be carried out after you are administered with local anesthesia. This helps to numb the tissues of the mouth and makes the procedure pain-free. The hole will be sealed with tooth-colored filling material after placing suitable antibiotic medication in it. After a few days of healing, a crown will be custom-fabricated and bonded to the tooth. It ensures the tooth is held intact and kept from sustaining damage.
