Root canal is a comprehensive procedure to restore your natural teeth & to relieve dental pain when a tooth is decayed, or infection arises.
Root canal treatment becomes essential when a tooth is decayed, or bacterial infection arises. Tooth decay, & infection are removed to preserve teeth, in the encompassed tissue and surrounding nerves. Medicated dental material is used to fill the empty space and to restore the tooth’s full functionality.
A root canal saves the affected tooth that is deeply infected, and the pulp inside the teeth becomes affected with bacteria. Several patients presume that extraction of the tooth is the most cost-effective solution; but in actual, pulling the tooth can be more costly and could cause significant problems for other adjacent teeth.
Endodontic therapy has manifested great success and generally it is everlasting. But in some conditions, necessary retreatment is required due to rising infections.
At Orange Family Dentistry, Dr. Tran and his San Diego dentist team have made root canal treatment much more relaxed, comfortable, and cheap than in the past.
Root canal treatment requires at least one appointment with your dentist or endodontist.
After giving anesthesia, a rubber sheet is placed around the tooth to wipe out saliva and keep the area dry. The inside of the tooth is carefully cleaned & also disinfected by removing inflamed infected pulp. Once the tooth is cleansed, it is sealed with a rubber-like material called gutta-percha to fill the opening.
If another appointment is required, a temporary filling will be issued. The tooth is also renovated with the dental crown to protect the tooth from possible breakage. After this treatment, maybe your tooth becomes sensitive; however, this will subside as the tooth and the inflamed area heals.
Each patient must follow and practice the instructions for good oral hygiene. Regular checkup will ensure a longer life of the root canal, so schedule your appointment with us today!
