If you’re looking for a dental practice that thrives on dedication to your wellbeing, with a focus on prevention. Then the staff and dentists at Zental are committed to offering an exceptional level of treatment coupled with expert advice and industry leading solutions for all root canal treatments
During root canal treatment, an endodontist removes the pulp inside the tooth, cleans, disinfects and shapes the root canals, and places a filling to seal the space.
If the initial root canal is unsuccessful an additional procedure may be able to diminish dental pain or discomfort and promote healing
It’s possible that a nonsurgical root canal procedure won’t be enough to save your tooth and that your endodontist will recommend surgery.
One of our dentists is on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to help you through any pain or discomfort associated to cavities and root canals.
Endodontics, or root canal therapy, is employed when the nerve supply to a tooth has been irreversibly affected by damage or decay. It is a way to prevent or help resolve a dental infection and save a natural tooth from extraction. A root canal is performed when there is enough sound root and crown structure remaining to eventually restore form and function to the involved tooth.
Inside every tooth is either a single central chamber or multiple ones that contain connective tissue, a nerve supply, and blood vessels. These core tissues, known as the dental pulp, help your tooth to grow and mature before it emerges into the mouth. A root canal procedure is required when this dental pulp is irreversibly damaged or has died.
Root canal therapy involves cleaning and shaping each canal, and then filling them with a special inert material. Following this they are sealed to prevent any subsequent infection. Once root canal therapy has been completed, the tooth should be fully restored as recommended.
How well you look after your implants – and whether you go for your regular maintenance appointments – will have the biggest impact on how long they will last.
If you don’t care for your dental implants they will develop a coating similar to what you get on neglected natural teeth. Left untreated, this can lead to gum infection, bleeding, soreness and general discomfort. You could get all these problems with natural teeth.
If your implants are well looked after, and if the bone they are fitted to is strong and healthy, you can expect them to last for many years. However, just as with other surgical implants (such as a hip replacement) there is no lifetime guarantee.
Once root canal therapy has been completed and adequate time has passed to allow the tooth to recover from infection or inflammation, the tooth should be back to normal function. Signs and symptoms of failed root canal therapy include sensitivity to cold or hot, swelling, and/or pain from chewing. Follow-up with the dentist or endodontist is necessary to determine further treatment to resolve the symptoms.
Many endodontic procedures are performed to relieve the pain of toothaches caused by pulp inflammation or infection. Today, Endodontists understand a great deal about pain management. With modern techniques and anesthetics, the vast majority of patients report that they are comfortable during the procedure. For the first few days after treatment, your tooth may feel sensitive, especially if there was pain or infection before the procedure. Over-the-counter medications, such as Advil® or Tylenol®, are usually enough to manage this sensitivity. In some cases, prescription medications may be necessary and are available from your endodontist.
