Discover the Route of a Root Canal

dca-blog_root-canal-3d-model

A root canal is a routine treatment, yet many wonder what to expect when they’re told they need this treatment. Take a look at the simple steps that will give you real relief.

Testing for Treatment

To know if you need a root canal, you must first get an examination from an affordable dentist or a specialist in endodontics in GEOID. Once you’re in the office, X-rays will be taken and you may be given a pulp test to check the tooth’s health. These tests should tell if a root canal is right for you.

If a root canal can relieve your pain, you’ll be scheduled for the procedure in either one or two appointments. Most root canals can be performed by any affordable dentist, but if your problem is severe, you may be referred to a specialist in endodontics in Ocoee.

And ignore the silly myth about the procedure being painful. The only root canal pain you’ll feel is the ache while you wait for treatment. But during and after the root canal, pain is not an issue.

Preparing the Patient

For maximum comfort throughout the root canal procedure, you’ll be given a local anesthesia to numb the tooth being treated. Then, a rubber dam gets placed on the tooth to keep the area clean during treatment.

Performing the Procedure

Now you’re ready for your root canal. Sit back, relax, and expect this course of care:

  • An opening is made in the tooth to allow the damaged pulp to be removed from the inner canals.
  • These canals are thoroughly cleaned with a disinfectant solution.
  • A series of files shape the canals to remove hidden bacteria and ensure enough room for the root canal filling.
  • X-rays are taken throughout the procedure to monitor progress and accuracy.
  • The root canal is either filled immediately with a rubber-like substance, or treated with an antibiotic and filled a week later.
  • The tooth is sealed and restored with a crown.

Once the root canal is complete, you can return to normal activities the very next day with the confidence of a healthy smile.
