What is a root canal treatment?

Root canal treatment is a procedure that repairs and saves decayed or infected teeth. Teeth can wear down due to biting and chewing. When the teeth become infected or damaged, a root canal treatment is recommended.

Some people are afraid to undergo this procedure. Don’t be scared. Your dentist will help you overcome your fear and make you comfortable during the procedure. You will be given local anesthesia, and apart from the fact it takes longer than a filling, you really shouldn’t feel any worse after it than if you’d had a filling.

What is the process involved in root canal treatment?

During the consultation and examination, your dentist will take an x-ray to look at the shape of the root canal and check if there’s an infection. A local anesthesia will be administered to numb the area. The dentist will place a rubber dam to keep the area clean. After drilling an access hole, the pulp including the bacteria and debris will be removed from the area and temporary filling material put in place after the area has been thoroughly cleaned. You will go back to the dentist after several days who will replace the temporary filling with a permanent one if there is no sign of infection. Sometimes you may need a crown to protect and strengthen the tooth if lots of decay has been removed.
