Save Your Tooth with Root Canal Treatment in Richmond

If you’re suffering from an infection with your tooth, root canal therapy may be an excellent solution for you. Also known as endodontic treatment, it involves the removal of the damaged dental pulp and sealing of the restored tooth. The treatment saves your damaged tooth and prevents the need for extraction.

What Are the Symptoms of Endodontic Problems?

You might be facing endodontic problems if you notice signs like:

  • Tooth discoloration
  • Tenderness when chewing and biting
  • Inflammation and tenderness in the gums
  • Unexplained pain in the nearby lymph nodes
  • Teeth that are sensitive to hot and cold foods
  • Chipped, cracked or fractured tooth

We recommend a visit to a dental professional if you regularly experience the above symptoms. A timely check-up can restore your dental health, while negligence can worsen the damage and increase the pain. For reliable root canal treatment in Richmond, trust Acqua Dental Centre.

How Does Root Canal Therapy Work?


When the nerve of your tooth is affected by decay or infection, you need root canal therapy. In order to save your tooth, the pulp (the living tissue inside your tooth), nerves, bacteria, and any decay are removed by making a tiny incision. Once the pulp is cleared out, the resulting space is filled with special, medicated, dental materials, and sealed off with a dental cap or crown to restore the tooth to its full function.

 

Many patients believe that removing a tooth that has problems is the solution, but what they don’t realize is that extracting (pulling) a tooth is more costly and can cause significant problems for your adjacent teeth. At Acqua Dental Centre, we use local anesthesia to reduce the pain. Post the treatment, you will be able to drive home, and probably will be comfortable returning to your regular routine.

 

Root canal treatment is effective in the following cases:

  • Injury or trauma to your tooth
  • Decay has reached your tooth pulp (the living tissue inside the tooth)
  • Infection or abscess have developed inside your tooth or at the root tip

Root Canal Treatment for Cracked Tooth


Cracked and fractured teeth are common dental problems, caused by biting on hard objects, trauma, grinding, and clenching of teeth. As the cracked tooth performs a biting action, the crack widens. If the crack has grown to the pulp, root canal treatment may be required before the crown or filling is put in place. However, when the crack is too severe for the tooth to be saved, the dentist will perform an extraction. Then you can rely on our restorative options, such as bridges, dental implants and partial dentures, to restore your biting, chewing, and speaking functions. If you continue to have pain, avoid chewing on that side of your mouth and contact us at Acqua Dental Centre. Our dentists will be more than happy to help you.

The Benefits of Root Canal Treatment


Here are the benefits that make root canal therapy a popular dental treatment:

  • Eliminates the pain: By removing the infection or decay that affects the sensitive tissues within your tooth, root canal therapy treats the pain and provides lasting relief.
  • Prevents infection: A root canal procedure removes the infection from the source and reduces the chances of the decay spreading further.
  • Preserves the natural teeth: The treatment helps restore your natural tooth and strengthens it to optimize its functionality.
  • Provides visually appealing results: A root canal not only restores the health of your damaged tooth but also gives it a natural appearance that adds to the aesthetics of your smile.
  • Safeguards adjacent teeth: By preventing the need for tooth extraction, the root canal helps keep the adjacent teeth in the right position and contributes to overall dental well-being.

With advancements in dentistry, root canals have also evolved and the procedure is done without much pain. So, don’t be anxious about the therapy and consult our dentists to know more about it. You can also view our FAQs in case you have any questions.
