Root Canal Treatment - The Procedure
Initial Consultation: Your journey to a pain-free smile begins with a comprehensive examination of your affected tooth. We’ll use digital imaging to assess the extent of damage and explain how root canal therapy can help.
Anesthesia and Tooth Preparation: On the day of the procedure, we’ll administer local anesthesia to ensure a pain-free experience. Your tooth will be isolated with a rubber dam to keep the area dry and clean.
Removing the Infected Pulp: We carefully access the inner chamber of your tooth and gently remove the infected or damaged pulp. Our state-of-the-art instruments allow for precise and thorough cleaning.
Shaping the Root Canals: After the pulp is removed, the canals are shaped with tiny, flexible instruments to prepare them for the filling material.
Disinfecting and Filling the Canals: The cleaned and shaped canals are disinfected to eliminate any remaining bacteria. A biocompatible material, often gutta-percha, is placed inside the canals to fill and seal them.
Placing a Temporary Filling: A temporary filling material closes the opening on the top of your tooth until your permanent restoration, like a crown, is ready.
Restoration of the Tooth: During a follow-up visit, the temporary filling is replaced with a permanent one. In most cases, a crown will be placed to protect and restore the tooth to full function.
Aftercare Instructions: We provide personalized care instructions to ensure a smooth recovery. It’s normal to experience some sensitivity after the procedure, which usually subsides within a few days.
Follow-Up Visits: Regular check-ups are crucial to monitor the treated tooth and to maintain overall dental health. We ensure your restored tooth functions beautifully as part of your healthy smile.
