Our Services

Root Canal Treatment

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.

Endodontic retreatment

If the initial root canal is unsuccessful an additional procedure may be able to diminish dental pain or discomfort and promote healing

Endodontic Surgery

It’s possible that a nonsurgical root canal procedure won’t be enough to save your tooth and that your endodontist will recommend surgery.

FAQ's

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.

Root canal treatment, when successful, saves teeth that would otherwise have been extracted. After root canal treatment the tooth is pulp-less i.e. it has no vital tissues within. However, there are vital tissues surrounding the root e.g. the gum, periodontal membrane and supporting bone. A root canal treated tooth can function normally and can be maintained with routine dental care and oral hygiene measures. The generally accepted success rate for root canal treatment, when perfomed by a specialist, is 80%.

Often following root canal treatment a crown or onlay is advised. This is to protect the tooth from fracturing.

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.

No, saving a natural tooth, if possible is always the best option. Part of the initial consultation appointment is to decide whether endodontics is the most appropriate treatment for the tooth.

If the tooth has a poor long-term prognosis because of a crack or extensive fillings then extraction and replacement may be advised. The space may be left or replaced with a removable partial denture, a fixed bridge or a dental implant. Each tooth needs careful evaluation and then a joint decision made as to the best long-term treatment option.
