Root Canal Treatment

Removing tooth decay to restore a beautiful smile.

Root Canal Therapy

Root Canal Therapy is a specialized dental procedure within the realm of Endodontics. It is designed to treat and save a tooth that has an infected, damaged, or inflamed pulp – the innermost part of the tooth containing nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue. Rather than opting for tooth extraction, Root Canal Therapy aims to preserve your natural tooth, ensuring both its functionality and appearance.

Benefits of Root Canal Therapy:

  • Preservation of Natural Teeth: Root Canal Therapy allows us to save your natural teeth, maintaining your smile's integrity and preventing the need for tooth replacement.

  • Pain Relief: By removing the infected or damaged pulp, Root Canal Therapy effectively alleviates severe toothache and discomfort.

  • Prevents Further Complications: Treating the root canal infection promptly can prevent the spread of infection to surrounding tissues and potential abscess formation.

  • Enhanced Oral Health: Root Canal Therapy contributes to overall oral health, reducing the risk of oral infections and maintaining proper chewing and biting functions.

The Root Canal Therapy Process

  • Diagnosis: Our skilled team employs advanced diagnostic tools to identify the extent of pulp damage, including digital imaging and thorough clinical assessment.
  • Anesthesia: Local anesthesia is administered to ensure your comfort during the procedure.
  • Access and Cleaning: An access point is created in the tooth's crown, allowing the dentist to remove the infected pulp. The root canal space is cleaned, disinfected, and shaped to prepare for filling.
  • Filling and Sealing: The cleaned root canal is filled with a biocompatible material to prevent recontamination and promote healing.
  • Restoration: To restore the tooth's strength and appearance, a dental crown is typically placed over the treated tooth.
