What is a Root Canal?
A root canal is a procedure where we numb you as we would for any dental treatment, and we carefully remove the nerve tissue from a tooth in order to save the tooth from having to be extracted. After the procedure is completed, the tooth will have no nerve and will be “dead”; we can then restore the tooth with a post and a crown so you can use the tooth again. A root canal is also known as an “Endodontic procedure.” We use a rotary technique which can be more efficient and faster than traditional hand-treated root canals, which means that you have can have successful treatment, and spend less time in the dental chair.
Why does a tooth need a root canal?
A tooth is made of three layers — the outer layer of enamel, the middle layer called the dentin, and the inner layer, called the pulp chamber (the nerve). When a cavity progress from the enamel, to the dentin, and then into the pulp, a root canal is needed because the nerve can become infected, which can lead to you losing the tooth.
What happens after a root canal?
In a root canal procedure, the canals (nerve chambers) mentioned above are filled with a non-reactive filling material. Once the procedure is finished, you should have a final restoration placed on the tooth (such as a crown) to protect the tooth from decay and/or fracture and chipping. We usually do so with a crown and sometimes with a post and a crown. When the root canal is done well and the tooth is restored promptly, the long-term prognosis for the tooth is usually excellent.
ROOT CANAL TREATMENT AND FILLING
Our patient came with severe pain in the lower right side. On examination with Dental X-Rays it needed Root Canal Treatment. Patient wanted to save the tooth and get out of pain right away. We comfortably did RCT and got the patient out of pain. We did a cosmetic filling to cover the hole. We always advise to get Crown on all Back teeth once RCT is done. Due to time patient scheduled for Dental Crown on next visit.
Patient was very satisfied that we are able to take care of the patient same day.
