The Root Canal Procedure
Also referred to in the dental community as endodontic therapy, a root canal is a safe and painless procedure to treat and restore the complex inner structures of the teeth like nerves, arterioles and pulp tissues. Infected teeth can be saved from tooth extraction so you keep your natural teeth! Some common symptoms of a root canal infection are:
- Tenderness and inflammation in the gums
- Discoloration of the tooth
- Sensitivity to hot and cold foods
- A sharp pain and sensitivity in the tooth while biting and chewing
- Unexplained pain in the nearby lymph nodes
A root canal dentist takes an x-ray of your teeth before the procedure and local anesthesia is applied to prevent any pain during the treatment. The dentist then plants a dam to isolate the infected tooth and creates a hole in the tooth’s surface to access the pulp chamber, removing the infected pulp and nerves with dental instruments. The empty space is then cleaned, shaped and filled before a filling is placed to restore the functionality of the tooth.
