Root Canal Treatment

Root Canal Treatment

A root canal is a procedure used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected. Although normal tooth decay can become increasingly worse and eventually lead to a root canal, often times blunt trauma can cause the tooth to die as well.

Reasons for Root Canal Treatment

● Decay has reached the tooth pulp (the living tissue inside the tooth).
● Infection or abscess has developed inside the tooth or at the root tip.
● Injury or trauma to the tooth.

Root Canal Treatment Procedure

Your dentist will remove the dead nerve from the tooth and then seal it off to prevent another infection or abscess from forming around the tooth. If the nerve is not removed the infection will continue to climb deeper into your gums, often causing swelling, pain, and discomfort.

Do not wait to see your dentist if you are experiencing any kind of discomfort. Call our office today to schedule an appointment.

Root Canal Treatment FAQ

Can dental crowns be repaired?

It may be possible to repair a damaged dental crown, depending on how much of it is damaged and how severe the damage is. Generally it is better to replace the crown so the integrity of the crown is not compromised. However, if the chip isn’t large, your dentist may repair it with a composite filling material to match the crown. In the case of a small chip or rough area, sometimes all that is needed is a little reshaping and smoothing of the surface of the crown.

Are dental crowns safe?

Yes, dental crowns are generally very safe. The only real problem that may be an issue is an allergy to the material used, typically a metal allergy. If you have a known sensitivity or allergy to any metal, inform the dentist of this and together you can decide what will be best for you.

Are dental crowns and caps the same thing?

Yes, a dental crown and a dental cap are referring to the same thing. Dental crown is a more technical term and a cap is more of an informal way to refer to it. But, they are just two different words referring to the same procedure.
