Signs of needing a root canal treatment can include severe tooth pain when chewing, prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold, discolouration or darkening of the tooth, swelling and tenderness in the nearby gums, or a recurring pimple on the gums.
Regular check-ups at Robelle Dental Centre are important to help identify and treat an infected tooth in the early stages. Early diagnosis and root canal treatment can help to relieve pain and protect against further infection.
The timely application of root canal therapy can significantly reduce the risk of tooth loss caused by an infected or damaged tooth. Root canal treatment is a common procedure to save and preserve a natural tooth.
The dental team may recommend a root canal appointment when there are clinical signs that the tooth is no longer healthy. The dental team will perform root canal surgery to remove pulp of the tooth and shape the inside of the tooth to take the root canal filling material.
Regular dental check-ups and proper dental care can help prevent tooth loss and maintain oral health.
On average, root canal treatment at Robelle Dental Centre can be completed in one to two appointments, with each appointment lasting around 60 to 90 minutes. The dentist then removes the infected dental pulp during the procedure, and then cleans, disinfects, and shapes the root canals. Depending on the severity of the infection, root canal treatment may include additional steps such as adding medication or root canal therapy.
The duration of the root canal treatment will also depend on the complexity of the procedure and the number of canals involved.
Root canal treatment helps to alleviate pain by removing the diseased or irritated pulp from the tooth, effectively eliminating the source of the pain. This type of dental pain can sometimes become severe if left untreated, making it a dental emergency.
The dentist places a protective sheet, known as rubber dam, over the affected tooth, isolating it from the mouth and potential reinfection. After the pulp is removed, the inside of the tooth is cleaned and disinfected, restoring the original tooth structure. Endodontic treatment is a dental procedure that helps avoid future dental infections.
Sometimes, sedation dentistry may help the patient feel more comfortable throughout the procedure. Furthermore, the filling and sealing of the tooth will help to provide long-term relief from the pain.
Good oral hygiene is essential for long-term success following a root canal treatment. To ensure the health of the treated tooth, the patient should:
With proper care, teeth treated with root canal therapy can last a for 10 or more years.
When a tooth has been severely damaged, it may not be possible to save it with root canal treatment, so the patient should consider alternative treatments. These can include an extraction followed by a dental implant, bridge, or denture to replace the extracted tooth.
Proper care of the tooth, including good dental hygiene and regular check-ups, is essential to maintain its health.
