How root canal treatment
can save your teeth

Saving a bad tooth with root canal therapy

When you can no longer eat or drink without pain and experience sensitivity to hot and cold, in all probability it means that all is not well with your teeth and professional dental advice should be sought.

Drinking or eating anything hot or cold should never be a problem; however, if your morning cup of coffee is less enjoyable due to a dull ache then a problem exists. This same ache may well develop into something more acute and you will probably find yourself shifting food from one side to another in order to avoid the pain caused by using an infected tooth.

We take these symptoms extremely seriously, offering root canal treatment to correct any current problems and restore dental and oral health.

What is root canal treatment?
A procedure to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected. During the procedure, the dental pulp (nerve and blood vessels) are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed. Without treatment, the tissue surrounding the tooth will become infected and abscesses may form
Will treatment be painful?
We will take every measure to ensure that your procedure is in no way uncomfortable or painful. If treatment is needed, we will use a small amount of anesthesia to gently numb a concentrated area of your mouth. For most patients, the feeling of numbness usually subsides after 2-3 hours.
After a root canal should I avoid eating anything?
Yes, it is highly recommended that you avoid using the treated tooth to chew food until it has received a permanent restoration. The chances the tooth could fracture after a root canal are high, especially if the tooth has not been permanently restored.
Will I need to return to your office for follow-ups after the procedure is finished?
Yes, for most root canal treatments, we recommend that patients return to the clinic one year after the procedure is finished.
Can I go back to work after treatment?
You should be able to continue your normal work schedule after having root canal treatment. The area will be sore and achy for a few days.
How do I know if I need root canal treatment?
If you think you might need a root canal, signs to look for include: pain, prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold, tenderness to touch and chewing, a ‘pimple’ on the gum, discoloration of the tooth, swelling, drainage, and tenderness in the lymph nodes or gums. However, it is not uncommon to have no symptoms at all.
What is the 'dental pulp'?
The pulp is the soft tissue that contains nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue. It lies within the tooth and extends from the pulp chamber in the crown of the tooth to the tip of the root.
Why does the dental pulp need to be removed?
When the dental pulp gets inflamed or infected, pain and swelling can result. Byproducts of the infection can injure your jawbones and promote bone loss. In addition, without treatment, you might end up losing the tooth.
How long will root canal treatment last?
There are, of course, no guarantees, but root canal treatment has a very high degree of success — up to 90%. Most endodontically treated teeth last as long as other teeth. In a few cases, a tooth that has undergone endodontic treatment may not heal, or the tooth may become painful or diseased months, sometimes even years, after successful treatment. Often, when this occurs, a repeat of the endodontic procedure or endodontic surgery can save the tooth. We will discuss the chances of success with you before any endodontic procedure to help you make an informed decision.
I've already had a root canal on this tooth, why do I need another?
New trauma, deep decay, or a loose, cracked, or broken restoration can cause new infection in your tooth. Lack of proper disinfection or lack of infected tissue removal from the first root canal can also cause problems. We are highly skilled at finding untreated canals, which are often very narrow or curved, and therefore were not properly or fully treated during the initial procedure.
