Root canal therapy, also known as endodontic therapy, is a procedure used to treat an infected or damaged tooth. The procedure involves removing the infected or damaged pulp from the inside of the tooth, cleaning the area, and filling it with a biocompatible material. The purpose of the procedure is to save the tooth from extraction and to prevent further infections.
Root canal therapy is necessary when the inside of your tooth, also known as the pulp, becomes infected or damaged. This can happen due to deep decay, trauma to the tooth, or a crack or chip in the tooth. Without treatment, the infection can spread and lead to more serious oral health problems, such as abscesses or bone loss.
Root canal therapy is typically performed under local anesthesia to ensure your comfort during the procedure. Our skilled dentists will use advanced techniques and technologies to ensure the safe and effective removal of the infected or damaged pulp from the inside of your tooth. Once the pulp is removed, the area will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected to ensure all bacteria are eliminated. Finally, the area will be filled with a biocompatible material to prevent future infections.
After the procedure, you may experience some discomfort or sensitivity, but this should subside within a few days. Our skilled dentists will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to ensure a speedy and successful recovery.
