Root Canal Treatments
If you’ve noticed tooth pain or sensitivity when chewing or swelling of your gums, it may be an indication that you have an infection in the tooth that requires a root canal. We are aware of how painful an experience tooth pain is, Therefore we here at Divine Smiles Dental Clinic are proud to have Specialized Endodontists to help protect you from all present and future tooth pain. Root canal treatment has gotten a bad and scary reputation, but today’s root canal treatments using the latest process’s and equipment’s are completely different from the past. Our Dentists are experienced in keeping your root canal treatment as pain-free and simple as possible for you.
When an infected tooth is left untreated, it can lead to tooth loss or more expensive treatment. We recommend that you don’t delay if you suspect that you have a problem. A root canal can save your tooth from having to be extracted and minimize any other damage that can occur. A tooth that’s treated with a root canal can last a lifetime.
Our highly specialized Root Canal Therapy is a sequenced three step treatment in order to eliminate infection and to protect the tooth from future bacterial attacks.
Basic Steps followed in a root canal treatment at our Dental Clinic are as follow:
First step – The nerve tissues, blood vessels and other cells are removed from within the roots of a tooth by the Dentist.
Second step – The roots of the tooth are cleaned and shaped with tiny files. The Dentist would then clean the same with disinfecting solutions.
Third step – The root canals are filled with an inert filling and a dental cement to block out all future bacterial attacks by your Dentist.
After the surgery the tooth will be “dead”, and if the infection is spread at apex, root end surgery is required.
This entire short process is painless if done properly by our highly trained dentists. In sometimes in complex cases up to three appointments can be needed to properly clean and seal the roots.
After a root canal treatment, the tooth looses all of its natural hydration from the nerve and blood vessels and becomes very brittle. This can make a tooth more prone to fracture especially if the tooth is a molar where most of the biting forces are concentrated. For this reason, we at Divine Smiles usually recommend a crown to protect teeth that have undergone root canal treatment.
