When is Root Canal Therapy Needed?

When the nerve of your tooth becomes infected, a successful root canal treatment lets you keep the tooth rather than having to pull it out. Keeping your tooth helps to prevent your other teeth from drifting out of line and causing jaw problems. Saving a natural tooth avoids having to replace it with an artificial tooth.

The goal of root canal treatment is to save the tooth and restore the tooth’s state, function and comfort. Root canal therapy is the removal of diseased tissue (infected pulp) from inside the tooth and subsequently cleaning, filling and sealing the root canal spaces in order to minimize the chances of future infection.

Root Canal Therapy Procedure

The procedure begins by administering a local anaesthetic to relieve pain and discomfort. A small opening is made on the chewing surface of the tooth to gain access to the infected tissue. Fine instruments are used to remove the infected tissue and clean the inside of the tooth. A tooth can have anywhere between 1-4 roots. Each root or canal must be properly clean, prepared, filled and sealed with biocompatible filling materials. They are sealed with an adhesive cement to prevent future infection. The tooth is then restored with a crown to prevent fractures, especially if it’s a molar or a premolar tooth.
