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.

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:
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.
