Root Canal Treatment
The aim of Root Canal Treatment is to save a badly decayed or infected tooth from needing to be extracted. Chewing, biting, appearance & the position of your teeth are all affected if you lose a tooth.
Root canal treatment
involves cleaning out the inflamed & infected soft tissue deep inside the
tooth that contains nerves & blood vessels. Each root canal is cleaned out
& enlarged using special instruments called files. Medicaments are also
placed inside the root canal to stop the pain & eliminate infection. You
may need to come back a few times to complete the treatment. A filling or crown
is then constructed to protect the treated tooth.
An infected tooth may
be the result of:
• Extensive dental work to the tooth.
• Breakdown of a filling or crown.
• Deep decay
• Gum disease
• A crack in the tooth.
• Extreme wear.
Root canal treatment has a high success rate. If you take good care of the treated tooth, it may last for many years and possibly for the rest of your life. Our dentists at Oracle Dental are highly trained and experienced in performing root canal treatment.
If you are experiencing dental pain, contact Oracle Dental for an appointment. The earlier the treatment, the better the prognosis.
