What Is Root Canal Treatment?

If you have a seriously decayed tooth, or unwanted tooth pain, a root canal can help to clean out the area and seal up the gap. However, many dread the mere mention of the procedure. Our dentists in Woodstock can help you overcome that fear. We strive to make the root canal therapy as pain-free as possible, with minimal discomfort afterwards. Our team can perform this procedure on everyone, from a child to a fully grown adult. Woodstock Square Dental is where you will get family-friendly dental care in a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

Do You Need Root Canal Treatment?

Advancement in dental procedures now allows dentists to save a severely decayed tooth with the help of a root canal treatment. Pain while chewing or sensitivity when your teeth are exposed to hot or cold temperatures are signs of dental infection. If you face constant tooth pain, swelling, or have pimple-like formations regularly, it is time to consult your dentist. If signs of severe decay are found, you may need to get this procedure done.

For teeth that are infected, our doctors can perform a safe, effective root canal to remove bacteria and avoid the need for extraction. Trust our cutting-edge technology for comfortable and convenient root canal therapy. Call us for more information.

    What’s Involved in Our Root Canal Treatment

    Our root canal treatment typically spans 1 to 3 sessions, encompassing several key steps:

    • Step 1: Examination of the infected or damaged tooth to assess the internal condition and determine the most suitable treatment plan.
    • Step 2: Application of a local anesthetic to ensure a painless procedure.
    • Step 3: Creation of a small access point in the affected tooth to reach the root canal, followed by the meticulous removal of infected or diseased tissue from the pulp.
    • Step 4: Shaping and sanitization of the hollow area to prepare it for restoration.
    • Step 5: Placement of a synthetic dental filling to comprehensively seal the tooth, preventing potential future infections.
    • Step 6: Minor reduction in tooth size, accompanied by the creation of an impression using a mold. This serves as a blueprint for a tailored crown to safeguard the delicate tooth.
    • Step 7: Installation of a custom-made crown to restore the tooth’s structure, strength, size, and enhance its aesthetic appeal.

    Benefits of Root Canal Therapy

    Prevent Tooth Loss

    Helps in preserving the natural tooth structure, and you don’t have to worry about losing your teeth.

    Aesthetic Improvement

    A tooth-coloured crown made out of high-quality material is placed post-treatment, enhancing the tooth’s appearance.

    Prevents Spread of Infection

    By removing infected tissue and sealing the tooth, it prevents the spread of infection to nearby teeth or other parts of the body.

    Boost Oral Health

    Maintains the health of your teeth but also prevents the necessity for more drastic measures like tooth extraction.

    Long-term Solution

    With proper care, a treated tooth can last a lifetime, providing a long-term solution to dental issues.

    Painless Procedure

    Utilizing state-of-the-art tools, we ensure the gentle removal of infected pulp nerves and painlessly disinfect the area.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Not really. Root canal therapy is typically performed under local anesthesia, so during the procedure, you shouldn’t feel pain. But some people might experience slight discomfort or sensitivity afterward. This can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain medications. We recommend communicating with your dentist for any concerns or discomfort.
    To steer clear of needing a root canal treatment down the line, prioritize your oral health by:

    • Brush and floss daily to maintain oral hygiene.
    • Opt for a low-sugar diet to support dental health.
    • Reduce intake of acidic drinks like tea, coffee, and similar beverages.
    • Schedule frequent professional dental exams to catch and address issues early on.
