What is Endodontic treatment?
When the decay and bacteria from the outside of the tooth reaches the pulp centre of the tooth, this can infect the nerve and blood supply of the tooth causing a toothache. Root canal treatment is generally like a deeper filling all the way to the ends of the roots of the teeth through several stages at the dentist.
Why should I save teeth?
- To be able to keep the other teeth upright instead of them shifting into the empty gap if the tooth is removed
- To give the remaining healthy teeth support with chewing
- It may be the front tooth and it is in the smile zone, so aesthetically it would be ideal to save it
- Have the ability to chew so that the opposing tooth doesn’t become a redundant tooth without its opposite chewer.
Are root canal treatments painful?
With the technology in local anaesthetics these days, there is less likely the root canal treatment will be painful
If it is considered a “hot pulp” the dentist will advise for you to take oral antibiotics as an interim until the tooth has settled for it to be worked on
How many stages does a root canal treatment take?
Removing the debris from the pulp chamber and placing antibiotics
Sealing the prepared canals to reduce any bacteria returning into the pulp.
It is very important that root canal therapy goes through every stage to be able to save the tooth so it can function without any temperature sensitivity.
A crown is needed to encase the tooth and make it stronger
