What can I expect from Advanced Dental Practice's root canal treatment?
Root canal treatment – which is an endodontic treatment (or endodontic therapy) – involves removing infected or damaged tissue from inside a tooth’s root canal. The process is necessary when decay or injury causes severe pain.
During a root canal procedure, our dentist will first numb the area before accessing (what we call) the dental pulp through an opening in the tooth’s crown. They will remove any affected tissue and clean out the canal and sealing it off.
While root canals have a reputation for being painful, modern techniques and anaesthesia means that most patients only feel minor discomfort during and after their treatment.
Root canals can save a damaged tooth from needing to be extracted, allowing you to maintain your natural smile.
It’s important to see your dentist at Kingsgrove’s Advanced Dental Practice regularly to catch decay early on and potentially avoid the need for root canal therapy.
What is the dental pulp?
The dental pulp is the soft tissue found inside a tooth, often referred to as the “nerve” of a tooth. It contains blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissues, and its main function is to provide nutrients and sensation to the tooth.
When a tooth becomes damaged or infected, the dental pulp can become inflamed or even die, resulting in discomfort and potentially causing problems for the surrounding teeth. Therefore, it’s important to take good care of your teeth and receive regular dental check-ups in order to prevent damage to the dental pulp.
In some cases, a dentist may need to perform a root canal procedure in order to remove damaged dental pulp and save the tooth from decay. However, with proper care and maintenance, our dental pulp can stay healthy for years to come.
When should you seek root canal treatment?
Some signs that you may require root canal therapy include severe tooth pain, especially when eating or drinking hot or cold foods; sensitivity to temperature changes that lasts for an extended period of time; darkening or discoloration of the tooth; and swelling or tenderness in the nearby gums.
If you experience any of these symptoms, it is important to seek dental care as soon as possible. Left untreated, an infected tooth can lead to Emergency Dental complications such as bone loss in the jaw and even spread of infection throughout your body.
Thankfully, root canal therapy is a successful solution for many patients, allowing them to continue enjoying their natural teeth for years to come.
It’s always best to consult with your dentist at Advanced Dental Practice about your individual circumstances and any potential treatments.
