Read what Root Canal Treatment is and how a treatment is performed and what to expect after a root canal

Why is root canal treatment nesessary?

Root canal therapy may be necessary if a patient’s tooth/teeth become decayed or if an injury has occurred. In such cases the tooth pulp usually becomes damaged. This can often result in a lack of blood to the area and, in turn, infection and tooth pain. Root canal treatment is essential to prevent infection from spreading. This will consequently help saving the teethso an extraction is not necesary.
Our emergency dental clinic can provide root canal treatment to our patients.

What is Root Canal Treatment?

Root canal treatment is usualy spread over two or more stages.
To start with the treatment, an anaesthetic is issued to the patient to ease any anxiety and to make the treatment as pain-free and comfortable as possible.
In the next Step, we use our high-tech equipment in the form of a flexible titanium rotary file to shape the canals. Titanium is known to have a good biocompatible level with humans.  This material also minimises the risk of an infection or possible fractures to the teeth during the root canal treatment. The Emergency dentist will then disinfect the tooth with powerful disinfectant. This is done, to ensure sanitation and reducing the chance of an infection.
To finish, the root canal is filled with a material, known as gutta percha. This is used to fill the root canal. This filling enables the tooth to remain healthy after treatment is completed.
Pain may be felt at the end of the procedure, however strong painkillers can ease this and the pain will only be temporary.

What Should One Expect After the Root Canal?

For the first few days following the completion of a root canal, the tooth can feel sensitive due to natural tissue inflammation. This can especially happen if there was pain or infection before the Treatment. This sensitivity or discomfort usually can be controlled with pain medications such as ibuprofen or naproxen. Most of our patients can return to their normal activities on the the next day.
Until your root canal procedure is completely finished and the permanent filling is in place or the crown, it is good to minimize chewing on the treated tooth. This will help you to avoid recontamination of the interior of the tooth and also should prevent a fragile tooth from breaking before the tooth is fully restored.
