Non Surgical Root Canal
What is a root canal?
A root canal is one of the most popular dental processes performed, well more than 14 million each year. This uncomplicated procedure can save your original teeth and avoid the requirement of dental bridges or implants.
The dental pulp is present at the center of your tooth. Pulp is actually a bunch of blood vessels that helps to develop the adjacent tooth. The pulp may get infected because of intense decay, trauma to the tooth, chips and cracks, or several dental procedures. The symptoms of the infection can be noticed as swelling or visible injury of the tooth, pain in the gums and tooth, sensitivity to temperature.
How is a root canal performed?
If you find any of the given-above symptoms, your dentist will most probably advise non-surgical treatment to remove the damaged pulp. This injured pulp is eliminated and the root canal is minutely and thoroughly cleaned and then sealed. During root canal therapy a person is generally given local anesthesia and the procedure may get completed in one or more appointments based on the treatment needed. Success rates for this kind of treatment are about 90%. If your tooth is not curable to endodontic service or the chance of success is not favorable, you will be informed by the dentist at the time of appointment or when a problem becomes evident during or post-treatment. At Rose Dental Care, we use local anesthesia to give relief from uneasiness. Along with that, we will provide nitrous oxide analgesia if needed. You will be able to drive yourself home after your therapy and you will most likely be comfortable going back to your daily routine.
What happens after treatment?
Once your root canal therapy is performed by the dentist, a history of your treatment procedure will be transferred to your restorative dentist. You need to keep in touch with their office for a follow-up restoration within some weeks of therapy completion at our dental office. Your restorative dentist will then determine what kind of restoration is required to save your tooth. It is quite rare for endodontic patients to face any complications after routine endodontic treatment or microsurgery. If an issue does spring up, however, we are always ready every time to respond to you. To avoid more decay, keep on practicing proper dental habits.
How much will it cost?
The expense related to this procedure can differ based on factors like the level of damage to the affected tooth and also which tooth is affected. Generally speaking, endodontic treatment is much less costly than tooth extraction and replacing it with an artificial tooth.
