As most people know, it is important to take proper care of your teeth. Improper oral hygiene can lead to many chronic conditions, which causes pain and suffering because of bacteria, infection, or decay. In the past, the only way to remove problems like an infected tooth would be to remove it, but many alternative options are now available today thanks to the advancements in dentistry over the past few decades. The root canal procedure is one of the most notable treatments created since the technique used lets dentists treat the infection without having to remove the tooth from the mouth.
The canal is located inside of the roots of your teeth. It is filled with a special fluid known as pulp and nerve tissue. The pulp is very susceptible to infection caused by plaque build-up, so if you neglect oral hygiene then it is likely that the bacteria will spread throughout your mouth. If left untreated, the infection will reach the bone supporting the teeth, which will cause excruciating pain and tooth loss. Root therapy is needed in order to treat the infection.
There are several common warning signs for any oral problem. These signs include bad breath, gum inflammation, gun swelling, sensitive teeth, pain when chewing, foul aftertaste, and pain in general. If any of these occur, consult with us so we can address the problem immediately.
Root canal therapy is a type of endodontic treatment in which the pulp and nerves are removed from the roots of the teeth. The canal is then cleaned out, filled, and is then sealed back up. This accomplishes two things; it heals the current tooth and prevents the infection from spreading.
Traditional root canal treatment used to be a painful experience, though the results were well worth it. In this day where many people are diagnosed with dental anxiety, considering such an operation can be quite stressful as well. Fortunately, laser root canal treatment exists for those worried about the procedure and do not want to feel pain. Laser treatments are always quick and painless, so you won’t have to worry about it at all. A concentrated beam of light will remove the infection better than the traditional method could. The actual procedure will be done in less than an hour. If you are still worried, sleep dentistry or IV sedation can be used to calm your nerves and make you feel comfortable.
