Root canal or Endodontic treatment is something most people fear. You do not have to be scared of undertaking a root canal anymore. The group of professionals at German Dental and Neuromuscular Clinic will make the process easy and painless for you.
A root canal services are necessary when the pulp inside the root canal becomes inflamed or infected. This inflammation or infections can happen due to a number of reasons, which can be due to no fault of yours. Some of these reasons include cracked or fractured tooth, deep decay, multiple dental procedures or trauma or injury to the tooth. Also, an injury to a tooth can also cause pulp damage which might even be invisible. If you fear to go through a root canal treatment and simply ignore the issue in your teeth, it will lead to pain or abscess.
Some symptoms of inflammation or infected teeth include discomfort which ranges from mild to extreme, there might be a pain when biting, chewing or being exposed to hot and cold beverages, or in the case of an extreme situation, you will feel pain which is so gut-wrenching that it will wake up from your sleep.
If it is identified that you need a root canal treatment, you have nothing to worry about. Our team will take care of everything that is relevant. This treatment can be completed in one or two visits. Firstly, we will thoroughly examine the teeth in question and take an x-ray. Then under anesthetic, a small sheet called a dental dam will be placed over the area to prevent any saliva from coming into the area and to keep the area clean. The pulp will be cleaned from the pulp chamber using very small instruments, through an opening in the crown of the tooth. Then the root canals will be filled with biocompatible material. The gutta-percha is placed with an adhesive cement to make sure the root canals are sealed. After the surgery, the patient will have to visit the clinic for several post-surgery treatments.
