Root Canal Therapy

Relieve yourself from an aching tooth pulp through our comprehensive root canal therapy.

When experiencing a toothache, patients often have two choices: keep the tooth in place and relieve the pain or extract and replace it. While others opt for the easier way out—removing the affected tooth—you need to remember that keeping your natural tooth is the most conservative option.

Extraction should always be your last resort, especially when you want to keep your teeth complete. Root canal therapy is a dental treatment that relieves your pain and allows the internally compromised tooth to remain intact. Most people get worried when told they need a root canal, but the treatment has evolved considerably over the years.

If you’re looking for a trusted dental clinic that provides reliable root canal therapy, look no further than Delicate Dental Arts. Our professionally trained dentists and staff are the ones to trust for safe and successful root canal therapy. We utilize state-of-the-art equipment to provide personalized and compassionate services.

Our Root Canal Therapy

At Delicate Dental Arts, we adhere to safety standards and utilize proven-effective procedures to ensure quality services. With root canal therapy, you won’t have to worry about replacing an extracted tooth, which can be costly and time-consuming. Here’s how it works:

1. Anesthesia

Before the actual procedure starts, you will be given sedation or anesthesia, depending on our dentist’s recommendation. This guarantees that your root canal therapy will be painless and comfortable.

2. Dental Dam Replacement

Once the anesthesia takes effect, our dentist will place a small rubber dam around the infected tooth area. The dam will help isolate the tooth and keep it dry during the root canal process.

3. Pulp Removal

After the infected pulp is removed from your tooth’s canal, a rubbery material will be placed. The rubbery material, which is called gutta-percha, will help prevent further infection.

4. Filling or Crown Placement

The final step is placing a filling to seal the tooth and prevent bacteria from re-entering. However, in most situations, a crown is placed atop the compromised tooth to protect it and restore your bite. Our root canal procedure may take only one visit.

When Is a Root Canal Recommended?

A tooth infection is commonly caused by bacteria that have entered a deep cavity, cracked tooth, or a loose filling. Beneath the enamel and dentin of your tooth, an internal canal allows room for the pulp to transport nutrients to the tooth. Once the pulp gets affected, it cannot fix itself, causing the tissue to die.

For children, the pulp is vital for tooth growth. As for adults, since your teeth no longer grow, the tooth can remain in place without it. When your tooth gets infected, a pressure buildup can occur inside the tooth’s canal and lead to severe toothache. This is when root canal therapy is highly recommended.

Signs You Need a Root Canal

Consulting a professional is important to know if you need a root canal. Meanwhile, you can also look out for some signs that your dental pulp is infected. Some of them are:

  • Intense Pain While Chewing or Biting
  • Swelling Gums
  • Chipped/Cracked and Discolored Tooth
  • Sensitivity to Hot or Cold
  • Pimples on the Gums

Benefits of a Root Canal

Root canal therapy is not only a painless procedure that can help you get rid of intense toothache. It’s also a treatment that is beneficial in many other ways, such as:

1. It keeps the natural tooth.

The root canal procedure revolves around removing the infected pulp tissue, cleaning the internal canal, and replacing it with filling material. With this treatment, you can keep your natural tooth and don’t have to worry about tooth loss.

2. It improves oral aesthetics.

If you opt for a root canal over tooth extraction, not only do you get to save your tooth, but you also get to retain the original look of your teeth. Fillings or crowns used in a root canal are designed to restore both the functionality and aesthetic value of teeth.

3. It prevents infection.

When left untreated, the infected pulp may cause damage and infection to its neighboring teeth. Root canal therapy is important, as it removes the infected pulp that spreads bacteria. This, in turn, keeps the teeth in good condition.

4. It stops toothache.

A damaged or infected pulp can be intensely painful and hinder you from functioning and being productive. The top reason people go for root canal therapy is to stop the pain. Once the infection is treated, the toothache will disappear.

5. It boosts oral and general health.

Root canal therapy doesn’t only relieve pain and help the teeth stay in good condition, but it also helps in preventing conditions caused by poor oral health, like heart disease, diabetes, and respiratory and gastrointestinal infections.
