Understanding Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment is necessary when the pulp, the soft tissue inside your tooth that contains nerves and blood vessels, becomes inflamed or infected. This can be caused by deep decay, repeated dental procedures on the tooth, or a crack or chip in the tooth. Symptoms may include severe pain, prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold, and discoloration of the tooth.

Our Root Canal Procedure

  • Diagnosis: Our initial step is a thorough examination using digital X-rays to determine the extent of the infection.
  • Anesthesia: To ensure your comfort, the area around the tooth is numbed with local anesthesia.
  • Pulp Removal: An opening is made in the crown of the tooth to access and remove the infected or inflamed pulp.
  • Cleaning and Shaping: After removal, the inside of the tooth is carefully cleaned and shaped, preparing it for a filling.
  • Filling the Canal: The cleaned and shaped canals are filled with a biocompatible material and sealed with adhesive cement to prevent bacteria from entering.
  • Restoration: After the root canal, a crown or filling is placed to restore the tooth to full function.

Advanced Technology for Root Canal Treatment

Infinity Smile Dental is equipped with cutting-edge technology to enhance the effectiveness and comfort of your root canal treatment:

  • Digital X-Rays: Provides detailed images of your tooth's structure, helping to accurately diagnose and treat infections.
  • Rotary Endodontics: Electrically-powered instruments make the treatment faster and more comfortable than traditional methods.
  • 3D Imaging: Allows precise assessment of the tooth anatomy for better treatment planning.
  • Laser Endodontics: When done with the help of a Laser, root canal therapy is less aggressive, making it painless and decreasing postoperative complications such as swelling, bleeding, and pain.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Q.1 Is a root canal painful?

Modern techniques and anesthesia make root canal treatments virtually painless. Most patients report that the procedure is no more uncomfortable than having a filling placed. Every root-canal treatment requires local anesthesia but in some cases laser-assisted root-canal treatment helps minimize the need to give patients local anesthesia as it is a painless procedure.

Q.2 How long does the treatment take?

A typical root canal procedure can be completed in one or two appointments, depending on the condition of your tooth and your personal circumstances. Each session may last between 60 to 90 minutes.

What are the alternatives to a root canal?

The main alternative to a root canal is tooth extraction and or Implants. However, saving your natural tooth is usually the best option to maintain your oral health and avoid more costly replacements like implants or bridges.
