Root Canal Treatment
Gone are the days when extraction was the prime solution to serious dental problems.
At Ria Family Dental we can save your tooth from extraction through our root canal treatment.
The procedure removes infected tooth pulp and replaces it with a filling. A dental crown is then often used to reinforce the strength of the tooth.
This is also called endodontic treatment or therapy. All dentists are trained to conduct the procedure, but you can also seek an opinion or treatment from an endodontist.
Unfortunately, many people are hesitant to undergo this dental treatment. Many people also think that it is painful. At Ria Family Dental, we are glad to inform you that our root canal treatment is nearly painless. We make certain it is a safe and nearly painless procedure, so you have no need to worry.
What Is A Root Canal Treatment?
The tooth pulp is a soft tissue which contains blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissues. It can be infected for a number of reasons including tooth decay. Once infected, a dental abscess forms and can lead to eventual tooth loss.
A root canal treatment stops the infection from worsening by removing the pulp, cleaning the inside of the tooth, and replacing it with a filling.
The success rate for a root canal treatment is quite high. About 90 to 95 percent of patients who had the procedure had a fully functional tooth after the treatment. Coupled with good oral hygiene and proper care, the treated tooth can last a long time.
Signs That You Need A Root Canal Treatment
The following are symptoms of infected pulp.
- Tooth sensitivity
- Pain when eating or speaking
- Unprovoked pain in the tooth, cheeks, or jaw
- Swelling of the gum near the affected tooth
- Dental abscess
- General discomfort leading to lack of sleep
However, there are some known cases in which infected pulp doesn’t show any symptom. Only your dentist can help diagnose this, during the course of a regular check up.
