During root canals procedures, a dentist deals with the nerves of the teeth. An infectious tooth is generally related to the nerves in the root of the tooth. During the process, the infected nerves are to be removed. If the nerves are left untreated, an infection can turn into an abscess which is a much more serious problem that includes bone loss in the jaw.
The term root canal often provokes instant fear in most people. However, advancements in dental technology along with the benefits of having the procedure done can help reduce any fear. With local anesthetics and proper pain medication, the root canal procedure can be performed with little to no pain in most cases.
The area around the tooth is numbed using a local anesthetic prior to starting the root canal procedure. Our dentist will then drill down into the tooth to create an opening into the canal. Dr. Rashid will then remove the infected tissue and clean the canal. After the infection has been removed, space is filled with a sealant. After a tooth has had a root canal, it is highly recommended that it be fitted with a crown.
This will improve the appearance of the tooth and will also make it much more likely that the root canal will be successful. The procedure will also relieve you from pain caused by the infection, allowing you to enjoy chewing, drinking without discomfort from heat, cold or biting down too hard.
