Endodontics (Root Canal)
Root Canal Treatment for Saving Damaged Teeth
Endodontics, commonly known as root canal therapy, is a crucial dental procedure designed to save a tooth that is severely damaged or infected. It involves removing the infected or inflamed pulp from the tooth and filling the space with a filling material to prevent further damage. At All in One Dental, our dentists specialize in performing root canal treatments using the latest technology and techniques.
When to Consider Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy may be recommended for patients who have a severely damaged or infected tooth that cannot be restored with a filling or crown. Here are some common signs that you may need root canal therapy:
Severe tooth pain: If you're experiencing severe tooth pain that doesn't improve with over-the-counter pain medication, it may be a sign that the tooth pulp is inflamed or infected.
Sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures: If you experience sharp pain or discomfort when you eat or drink hot or cold foods, it may be a sign of nerve damage or infection in the tooth.
Swelling or tenderness in the gums: If the gums around the affected tooth are swollen, red, or tender to the touch, it may be a sign of infection.
Discoloration or visible damage to the tooth: If the affected tooth is discolored or visibly damaged, it may be a sign of nerve damage or infection.
Root Canal Therapy Procedure
During the procedure, our endodontic dentist will remove the damaged or infected pulp tissue from the tooth and then clean and shape the root canals. The canals are then filled with a special material to prevent future infection and sealed with a dental filling or crown. The entire procedure typically takes one to two appointments, depending on the complexity of the case. Our dentist will provide you with detailed instructions on how to care for your tooth after the procedure, including how to manage any discomfort or sensitivity you may experience.
