What Exactly Is a
Root Canal Treatment?

Root canal treatment is a common procedure that can save your natural tooth and prevent the need for a more invasive treatment like extraction. At our dental clinic, our experienced dentists use state-of-the-art technology to ensure that the procedure is performed efficiently and with minimal discomfort. During the treatment, we remove the infected pulp and nerve from the root canal of the tooth, and then clean and shape the inside of the canal before filling and sealing it. Our team will work closely with you to ensure that you feel comfortable and informed throughout the entire process.

How do you know if you need a Root Canal?

Here are some signs and symptoms to look out for:

  1. Severe toothache: If you experience a severe toothache, especially when chewing or applying pressure to the affected tooth, it could be a sign that the pulp is infected or inflamed.
  2. Sensitivity to hot and cold: If you feel a sharp pain when consuming hot or cold foods or beverages, it could be a sign of pulp damage.
  3. Gum swelling: If you notice swelling around the affected tooth, it could be a sign of an abscess or infection.
  4. Discoloration: If the affected tooth becomes discolored or darkened, it could be a sign of pulp damage.
  5. Persistent bad breath: If you have persistent bad breath, even after brushing and flossing regularly, it could be a sign of an underlying dental issue, such as a root canal infection.

What to expect during your Root Canal procedure

A root canal is a common dental procedure that can be done in BraVaz Dental clinic. During the procedure, our dentist will numb the affected tooth and surrounding area with a local anesthetic. Once you are numb, our dentist will create a small access hole in the top of your tooth to reach the pulp chamber and root canals. Using small, specialized instruments, our dentist will remove the infected or damaged pulp from the tooth’s interior. After the pulp is removed, the root canals will be cleaned and shaped to prepare them for filling.

Finally, a special filling material called gutta-percha is placed into the root canals to seal them and prevent future infection.  Then we may place a temporary filling to protect the tooth until a permanent restoration, such as a dental crown, can be placed. Overall, a root canal is a safe and effective procedure that can be done in our dentistry practice to relieve pain and save a damaged or infected tooth.

Can Root Canal Treatment save a tooth?

Yes, root canal treatment is designed to save a tooth that has become infected or inflamed in the pulp of the tooth. By removing the infected or inflamed tissue, cleaning and shaping the inside of the root canal, and sealing it, the tooth can be saved and restored to its original function. Without root canal treatment, the tooth may need to be extracted, which can lead to additional oral health issues.

Root Canal Treatment recovery and aftercare

After a root canal treatment, it is important to take proper care of your teeth to ensure a smooth recovery. If you follow our directions you shouldn’t have any problems with your recovery. We strongly recommend that you stick to liquids for a few hours and your your mouth no longer feels numb. After that you can incorporate solid foods into your diet that are soft, like a broth. The treated tooth may be sensitive for a few days, and it is recommended to avoid biting down on hard or crunchy foods. Pain medication may be prescribed to alleviate any discomfort.

It is also important to maintain good oral hygiene habits, such as brushing and flossing regularly, to prevent any further infection or decay. We may recommend a follow-up appointment to check on the progress of the treated tooth and ensure that it is healing properly.

In some cases, a dental crown may be recommended to protect the treated tooth and restore its function. It is important to follow any post-treatment instructions given by your dentist and to schedule regular check-ups to maintain your oral health. With proper care and attention, a root canal treatment can save your tooth and prevent the need for extraction.

How much does a Root Canal cost?

The cost of a Root Canal can vary depending on several factors such as how complex the problem is, the severity of the tooth damage, and location of the tooth. Molars are more difficult to treat; the fee is usually more. Generally, the cost for a root canal procedure does not include the cost of a crown or other restorative procedures that may be needed after the treatment. However, it is important to note that many dental insurance plans cover a portion of the cost of Root Canal Treatment.

Patients should consult with their dental insurance provider to understand their coverage and payment options. It is also important to remember that investing in a Root Canal can ultimately save a tooth from extraction, which can lead to more expensive and extensive dental procedures in the future.

A Root Canal Treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need of dental implants or bridges. A Root Canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed.

If you are experiencing tooth pain, it’s important to see a dentist as soon as possible, as you may need endodontic work or another procedure. If left untreated, infected pulp may cause the loss of the tooth.
