Root Canal
 

Root Canal Therapy

root_canal1.jpgEndodontics is the aspect of dentistry that treats the inside of a tooth, rather than the outside. If a fracture or cavity has extended into the tooth and involved the nerve tissue, then endodontic therapy is a necessity. This is typically referred to as a root canal.

 

What is a Root Canal?

Root canals are similar to fillings that extend into the chamber inside of the tooth, sealing off the root and preventing reinfection. They are usually necessary for teeth that have experienced:

  • Abscesses
  • Large fractures
  • Cracked roots
  • Large cavities
  • Deep fillings which need to be replaced

 

Your Treatment Experience

The damaged portion of the tooth is removed, including the infected nerve tissue. Then the nerve chamber is cleaned and sealed. A temporary restoration will be placed over the tooth until a permanent crown can be made.

Are you experiencing sensitivity to hot, cold, sweet or pressure? Have you noticed swelling near the tooth? Call Aurora Dental for an exam and x-ray to determine whether or not you need a root canal.
