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 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.
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.
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.

Alternative Treatments at Crown Dental
All of our treatments and services are provided in a comfortable, spa-like clinic, designed according to high-quality standards in our clinic in Dublin 6.
Routine dental check-ups and consultations are an important part of ensuring good oral health. Taking care of your teeth, gums and general dental health starts with a dentist check-up, a consultation with a specialist, the development of a treatment plan and professional cleanings.
There are occasions where the decay or damage to a tooth may be too extensive to be treated with a simple filling, but not quite extensive enough to need the full-coverage of a crown. In these types of situations, the best option for tooth restoration may be to consider dental inlays or onlays.
