Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is one of those dental procedures that people really don’t like to think about. After all, who wants to think about their teeth being drilled and root canals being filled? However, the truth is that root canal therapy is often necessary to save a tooth that has been damaged by decay or infection. At All Dental, our team of experienced endodontists offers root canal therapy as part of our comprehensive range of dental services. We understand that the thought of root canal therapy can be daunting, but we promise to make the experience as comfortable and stress-free as possible.
What is a root canal?
A root canal is a procedure that is used to save a tooth that has been badly damaged or infected. The root canal involves removing the damaged or infected tissue from inside the tooth, and then filling and sealing the tooth. Root canals are often necessary when the damage or infection has reached the pulp of the tooth, which is the soft tissue that contains blood vessels and nerves. Root canals are also sometimes used to treat abscesses, which are collections of pus that can form at the base of a tooth. Although root canals can be somewhat uncomfortable, they are typically successful in saving the damaged tooth and preventing further infection.
Post root canal care
There are a few things you can do to help ensure a successful outcome. First, be sure to brush and floss your teeth carefully and avoid chewing hard foods for the first few days after the treatment. In addition, you may need to take over-the-counter pain medication for a few days to help manage any discomfort. Finally, be sure to see your All Dental dentist for regular checkups and cleanings to help keep your teeth healthy. With proper care, root canal therapy can help you keep your natural teeth for a lifetime.
