What exactly is a root canal?
A root canal that is performed when there is a built-up infection inside of the dental pulp of the tooth. The tooth’s nerves, connective tissue and blood vessels are all found inside the dental pulp of a tooth. Any infection found inside the dental pulp can lead to extreme pain and discomfort.
Unfortunately, the only way to eliminate the discomfort is through root canal treatment. Since the discomfort can be very painful, our dentists are available to perform a root canal quickly and effectively.
How is it performed?
It all starts with a small incision on the affected tooth, so our root canal dentists can remove all of the infected areas. Since the human body only needs the roots of a tooth until the adult tooth grows in, the roots and dental pulp are removed during this. After the adult tooth grows in, the roots are only used to feel sensations like hot and cold. Removing the roots from just one tooth will not make your entire mouth numb to sensation. We also remove the roots to eliminate the chance of the infection still spreading post surgery.
The root canal treatment is finished with the sealing of the hole with a rubber substance to help stabilize the tooth. A filling or crown is then placed over the tooth for strong support.
