What Is A Root Canal?
Root canal treatment is the process of removing infected, injured or dead pulp tissue from your tooth. When bacteria enter your tooth through deep cavities, cracks or flawed fillings, your tooth can become abscessed /infected. An abscessed tooth may cause pain and/or swelling. If left untreated, an abscessed tooth can cause serious oral health problems.

A root canal is a treatment to remove the infection and dead tissue in the pulp chamber and roots of the tooth. This procedure will heal and save the infected tooth. After a root canal treatment, your tooth will be restored to look, feel and work as much like a natural tooth as possible.
When Is A Root Canal Needed?
Although some people have no symptoms, the following are common signs that you might have an infected tooth and possibly need root canal treatment:

  • A toothache and pain that's either constant or spontaneously occurs
  • Tooth pain in response to biting pressure
  • Tooth pain in response to atmospheric changes (e.g. when on an airplane)
  • Tooth pain in response to movement (e.g. running or moving from standing to lying down)
  • Swelling around a tooth
  • Lingering sensitivity to hot or cold
How Is A Root Canal Done?
Root canals are safe and predictable.

After successful anesthesia, a rubber dam is placed over the diseased tooth. The pulp chamber is accessed and the infected or inflamed tissues are removed from the tooth.

At the next visit, after further dis-infection, the roots are filled with a rubber material. This will allow healing to occur over time. Although the pain may be gone after the initial appointment,not all of the bacteria have been removed. Failure to have the procedure completed could result in an even larger infection, sometimes requiring hospitalization.

It is imperative to the success of the procedure to have the tooth optimally restored once the root canal is complete.
