ROOT CANAL TREATMENT
The best way to preserve your natural teeth!
We use advanced technology equipment while performing root canal treatment. In the event that the pulp becomes inflamed or infected because of either deep decay or repeated dental procedures on the tooth, root canal treatment has to be performed. If left untreated, pulp inflammation can result in abscess (infection).
To understand this procedure, one needs to know about the anatomy of the tooth. A soft tissue known as the pulp is found under the white enamel and a hard layer that is our dentin. It contains blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue that help in the root growth of your tooth during development.
HOW DOES ROOT CANAL TREATMENT SAVE THE TOOTH?
During a root canal treatment, the inflamed or infected pulp is removed and the inside of the tooth is carefully cleaned and disinfected, and then filled and sealed with a rubber-like material called gutta-percha. Afterwards, the tooth is filled for protection and then crowned. After restoration, the tooth will continue to function normally.
Contrary to common myths about the procedure, modern root canal treatment is very similar to having a routine filling and usually can be completed in one or two appointments; depending on the condition of your tooth and your personal circumstances. You can expect a comfortable experience during and after your appointment.
SAVING THE NATURAL TOOTH WITH A ROOT CANAL TREATMENT HAS MANY ADVANTAGES:
• Efficient chewing
• Normal biting force and sensation
• Natural appearance
• Protects other teeth from excessive wear or strain
RCT helps you maintain your natural smile. With proper care, most teeth that have had a root canal treatment can last as long as other natural teeth; often for a complete lifetime.
