Why Would I Need a Root Canal Procedure?

A root canal procedure is needed to solve problems such as infections in the root of the tooth (or dental pulp). Before modern root canal treatment, infections in the dental pulp usually led to the extraction of the tooth. Nowadays, a dentist is able to find and treat problems in the dental pulp without removing the tooth.

Root canal treatment takes one or two visits, dependent upon a number of factors, such as how extensive the damage is, or whether there is an abscess. After your treatment is complete, your root canal won't feel any more uncomfortable than having a dental filling.

On the first visit, x-rays are taken to confirm the extent of any disease and the damaged pulp is removed from the tooth under a local anesthetic. The tooth is thoroughly cleaned and filled with flexible plastic material. A temporary filling is put on top of that to prevent debris from entering the tooth and causing infection.

On the second visit, your dentist will then fit a permanent filling or a crown, providing there is no sign of infection. There is no reason why, with regular check-ups and good oral hygiene, your root canal treatment cannot last a lifetime.

CAD/CAM

If your dentist has CAD/CAM technology, you may be able to receive the crown while you wait as the design, milling and fitting can all take place at your dentist’s office—which is an option worth exploring if time is of the essence. [2]
