Root Canal Treatment

At North Shore Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry, we understand that root canal treatment can seem daunting. However, our skilled dentists are here to provide you with a comfortable and effective procedure that can save your natural tooth and alleviate any pain or discomfort.

Root Canal Treatment

Why Root Canal Treatment is Necessary

Root canal treatment becomes necessary when the pulp, the innermost layer of your tooth containing nerves and blood vessels, becomes infected or damaged. This can occur due to deep decay, cracks, or trauma to the tooth. Without treatment, the infection can spread, causing severe pain and potentially leading to tooth loss.

Infected or Decayed Pulp

When the pulp, which contains nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue inside the tooth, becomes infected due to deep decay or damage, a root canal is required. The procedure involves removing the infected pulp to prevent the spread of infection and to save the tooth from extraction.

Severe Tooth Pain

Infected or damaged pulp can lead to intense and persistent tooth pain. A root canal is necessary to alleviate this pain by removing the source of the infection and restoring the tooth's health.

Prevent Tooth Loss

If left untreated, an infected or damaged tooth can lead to the formation of an abscess, a painful pocket of pus at the tooth's root. In severe cases, the infection can spread to the surrounding tissues and bone, necessitating tooth extraction. A root canal can prevent tooth loss by preserving the natural tooth and preventing further complications.

How Root Canal Treatment is Performed

During your dental examination, our dentists will evaluate your tooth and may take X-rays to determine the extent of the infection.
Before the procedure, local anesthesia will be administered to numb the area and ensure you are comfortable throughout the treatment.
Access and Cleaning
A small access hole will be made in the tooth, allowing our dentists to remove the infected pulp and thoroughly clean the root canals.
Filling and Sealing
The cleaned root canals will be filled with a special material, and the tooth will be sealed to prevent further infection.
In most cases, a dental crown will be placed on the treated tooth to restore its strength and protect it from further damage.
