What Is Root Canal Therapy?

Root canal therapy removes damaged, decayed, or infected tissue within a tooth, preserving the remaining healthy structure. The treatment begins with creating a hole in the infected tooth to access the inner portion known as the dental pulp. If left untreated, this sensitive center can become infected or damaged, leading to significant pain and potential tooth loss. However, root canal therapy can preserve your teeth, soothe pain, and prevent further complications. It also allows you to keep your natural tooth, maintaining your bite force and sensation, and protecting neighboring teeth from excessive wear or strain. This emphasis on preserving your natural teeth should instill a sense of security and confidence in our services.

The root canal process involves several key steps:

  1. Accessing the Tooth: The tooth’s pulp is accessed through a tiny hole made in the tooth.
  2. Removing Infection: The damaged or infected tissue is carefully removed from within the tooth.
  3. Filling the Tooth: The cleaned cavity is then filled with gutta-percha, a biocompatible material that provides strength and stability.

Crowning the Tooth:

Finally, a customized dental crown is placed above the treated tooth to restore aesthetics and appearance. At Dental Art Clinic, we perform root canal therapy with the utmost precision and care, ensuring our patients are safe and at ease throughout the procedure. This treatment not only relieves pain but also prevents the spread of infection, safeguarding your oral health.
