What’s the cause of a root canal?
The soft tissues called pulp and nerves inside your teeth can become damaged and infected. If this happens the pulp and nerves need to be removed due to the fact that bacteria will begin to grow.
This bacteria is what causes an infection inside the tooth or an abscess by the tooth.
How do you know if a root canal procedure is needed?
It is usually pretty apparent when you need root canal replacement. There are several common symptoms.
- A toothache
- An abscess
- Pain while eating
What’s a Root Canal Treatment?
A root canal treatment is able to repair and save an infected or decayed tooth by removing the nerves and pulp.
Having a root canal in Mt Druitt can save your tooth so you won’t have to have it extracted. The steps of a root canal are as follows:
- Your dentist will use pain-free methods before the root canal procedure starts. Using these methods will help you relax.
- The infected nerves and pulp are removed
- The inside of the tooth is thoroughly cleaned
- Medication is applied within the tooth
- A temporary filling is applied.
- Your tooth and gum will need time to heal and a second appointment will be made
- During the next appointment, the temporary filling will be removed
- A sealer paste and gutta percha, a rubber compound, will be placed in the root canals
- A permanent filling will be installed
- If you are interested in having a crown this will be done on a future date
What to expect after the root canal procedure
Your tooth may be sensitive for a few days and you might need to take some over-the-counter pain medication. Most people are able to return to work or their regular activities the next day.
It is important not to chew on your tooth until the root canal therapy is completely finished.
Having a crown installed after your root canal is a good idea to help protect the tooth.
Continue to practice good oral hygiene so that the tooth doesn’t get infected before it has a chance to heal.
