Root Canal Treatments

Root Canal Treatments

Do you have a severe toothache? Does biting into something cold send sharp shocking pain through your tooth? You just might be in need of root canal treatment. Have you been putting off a visit to get your tooth examined? Many dental patients put off seeing the dentist for a painful tooth because they fear that they’ll be in need of a root canal procedure.
Root canals have an unearned reputation for being one of the most feared dental treatments. The truth is that a visit to your dentist today is far removed from the tales describing dental processes from even just a few short years ago.
Today, you’ll be welcomed warmly by an experience and compassionate team of dental professionals who have your comfort in mind. Root canal treatment is fairly routine. Patients should feel no discomfort during the procedure, and in fact should be a reduction in any discomfort or pain felt prior to sitting in the dentist chair.
Root canal treatments can avoid the total loss of the tooth. Saving a tooth is a much better option than needing to lose it and ultimately consider replacement options.

What is a root canal treatment?

Get results you love

There are two primary reasons for root canal treatments becoming a necessity if the goal is to reduce pain and preserve the natural tool. Root canal treatment becomes necessarily when the pulp inside of your tooth has become infected. This can happen through damage sustained directly to the tooth, or through tooth decay. Tooth damage that is minor can be repaired with a simple filling or a crown. When decay has entered the tooth, the situation becomes more problematic.
The infection can potentially spread throughout the root canal system in your mouth and can ultimately lead to the development of an abscess. Infections that enter the blood stream can become a concern.

What is a root canal treatment used to treat?

While not all toothaches will indicate that you are in need of root canal therapy, severe toothaches that cannot be helped with over-the-counter pain medications are typically indicative of needing a root canal.
Rarely there will be very few symptoms of severe tooth decay, but there are some that patients often become aware of. A toothache and pain in the gums are often signs of an infection in the tooth. The gums are often swollen and red. An abscess may form if the infection has progressed.
Swelling that extends into the cheek is a concern often seen. Discomfort when eating or drinking, particularly cold foods and drinks.
Getting the infected tooth treated will eliminate all of the discomfort felt prior to the procedure.

What are the options for an infected tooth?

It’s a good idea to consider all of your options prior to any medical or dental procedure.

  • With an infected tooth, particularly one where the infection has spread into the root canals of the tooth, you are typically faced with just two options.
  • The first option is going to be undergoing the root canal treatment.
  • The second option is going to be the removal of the tooth.
  • Extracting the tooth might be a good option to consider if the tooth is a wisdom tooth or another molar.

The best way to determine whether you’ll be able to see the results that you are hoping for is to speak candidly with our doctors. Dermal fillers like cheek fillers and lip fillers can help patients to get that youthful appearance they are after.

What happens during root canal treatment?
With your comfort being a priority, the area surrounding the infected tooth will be numbed so that you feel no discomfort during the procedure. Once you are completely numb, the procedure will begin. The decayed and damaged tooth tissue will be removed. This will provide access to the infected pulp. The pulp will be flushed out so that there is no longer any sign of the infection. The insides of the root canals will be disinfected as added security. The root canals will now be packed with a filling material that will help to retain the overall strength and structure of the tooth. A temporary filling and crown will be placed over the tooth in order to seal it and protect it from any further damage and infection. Root canal treatment is over 95% successful. If you have a previously treated tooth that is once again causing you discomfort, then we recommend you come in and have it looked at. Root canal retreatment is often possible if the decay has not caused too much damage. Root canal recovery takes just a few short days. Patients can expect to feel some minor discomfort, and experience minor swelling, for up to a week.
With any procedures there are advantages and disadvantages to consider. With a root canal there are only the positives to look at. Prior to the procedure patients are often in a world of pain, and they are at increased risk for further infection and health concerns. Untreated dental infections can potentially impact heart health.

  • review rating 1  I had an appointment at 9 am at Crown dental, the receptionist, me and the dentist were waiting for an assistant (Sofia) for an hour standing at the front door. When she turned up with absolutely no care in the world, she didn't say hi or sorry not to even mention that she hasn't pick up the phone from the dentist and the receptionist, just turned up out of the blue. I was already 1 hour late into my very important treatment, and when I finally got to sit down on the chair, starting with impressions, the doctor asked the assistant Sofia to prepare the impression and at the end she did awful proportions of the impression, it would not solidify, she has the cheek and very little care of me (patient), of my precious time and money and the stress I have to go through to get a crown done. Unfortunately I was not able to finish my treatment because there were other people booked in for an appointment so she had to return me back home. I travelled taking 2 buses to get there just to get an impression that wasn't even prepared properly. The assistant Sofia is a young person and definitely not trained up to be taking up a serious job like this. She is absolutely incompetent, patients health and best care isn't in her best interest, and the ethics behind performance absolutely makes her a person unable to take on such a serious and responsible job. The dentist was unable to do her job because of the lack of help and lack of consideration that the assistant Sofia offered her.

  • review rating 5  Both myself and my husband have been Dr Erika's patients for over a decade. Crown dental is the cleanest, most equipped dental practice I have ever been to. Both dentists and the nurses are highly qualified and are brilliant with nervous patients. My husband had a dental implant done here with A+ results. Their prices are highly competitive but without compromising on quality. We cannot recommend them highly enough.
