What is root canal treatment?

Root canal treatment is a procedure that repairs and saves infected or damaged tooth. A dentist or specialist (Endodontist) performs the procedure using a gentle approach. A root canal therapy is usually done when the nerve of the tooth becomes infected and the dental pulp becomes damaged.

A damaged nerve or pulp is a breeding place for bacteria. The growth of bacteria plus the debris can cause infection or an abscessed tooth. Aside from abscessed tooth, people with infected tooth usually experience the following:

Terrible tooth pain especially when chewing
Tooth discoloration
Prolonged sensitivity to hot and cold food/drinks
Swelling that extends to some parts of the body like face, head and neck
Tenderness in the gums
Recurring pimple in the gums

What is the process involved in the treatment?

The process usually takes about to two to three trips to the clinic. On your initial visit, the dentist will take x-rays inspect the shape of the root canal and check if there are any signs of infection. He’ll begin the treatment by numbing the area and use a rubber sheet to keep it dry. Then, he’ll drill an access hole, remove the pulp and nerve tissue including debris, and clean the area. The cleaning process is followed by tooth restoration. In some cases, it takes about a few days before the dentist seals the tooth.

In order to make the patients comfortable during the procedure, the dentist uses specials tools and equipment. If you have a dental phobia, discuss your concerns to the dentist as sedation dentistry can be used for patients with dental phobia or dental fear.

After the procedure, some people experience tooth sensitivity. The dentist will give you instructions or recommend you to take pain reliever.
