What is a Root Canal Treatment (Endodontics)?

Root canal treatment involves the removal of the pulp (nerves and blood vessels) from the inside of the inflamed, infected or dead tooth in order to prevent it from becoming a source of continuing infection.

Using a Zeiss dental microscope, our dentists can treat even treat complex root canal treatments for our patients.

What does root canal treatment involve?

The treatment may involve two or more visits to complete since it is important that the inside of the tooth be thoroughly prepared, disinfected and then filled with a non-irritating material.

The number of visits needed will be determined by such things as the severity of infection when treatment is started, the number of roots present and calcified obstructions inside the roots.

What might I experience after treatment?

It is not uncommon to have slight sensitivity or a mild ache between visits and for a short period after completion of the treatment. If this occurs it can usually be managed with medication that the doctor will recommend or prescribe for you.

Occasionally, a tooth that has been treated will become re-infected and need either re-treatment or removal. Any of these things could lead to the need for a more extensive surgical approach or extraction of the tooth. 

It is often recommended that when a tooth has received root canal treatment that it be restored with a full crown to preserve the structural integrity of the tooth and to help ensure that the tooth can provide many years of service.
