What Is Endodontic Treatment?
Endodontic treatment, commonly known as root canal therapy, involves removing infected or damaged dental pulp from the tooth’s interior. The dental pulp contains nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissues, and when it becomes infected or inflamed, it can cause severe pain and compromise the tooth’s health.
Endodontic Treatment Process:
- Evaluation and Diagnosis: Our experienced dental professionals will thoroughly examine your teeth and take dental X-rays to assess the extent of the infection or damage. This evaluation helps determine if endodontic treatment is necessary and if you are a suitable candidate.
- Local Anesthesia: Before the procedure begins, we will administer local anesthesia to ensure your comfort. This numbs the treatment area and helps alleviate any potential discomfort.
- Pulp Removal: Our dentist will carefully access the infected dental pulp and remove it from the root canals using specialized instruments. This step eliminates the source of infection and prevents its spread.
- Cleaning and Disinfection: The root canals are thoroughly cleaned, shaped, and disinfected to remove any remaining bacteria or debris. This step ensures optimal healing and reduces the risk of reinfection.
- Sealing and Restoration: After the canals are cleaned and disinfected, they are filled with a biocompatible material. The tooth is then sealed to prevent further infection. A dental crown or filling is placed on the treated tooth to restore its strength and functionality.
- Follow-Up Care: We will provide detailed post-operative instructions to ensure proper healing. It is important to attend any recommended follow-up appointments to monitor the healing process and ensure the success of the treatment.
