Root Canal Treatment 

What does root canal treatment involve? Find out more about this fast, comfortable dental treatment that can alleviate your pain and save your natural tooth.

Has your dentist said to you that you should have root canal treatment? If yes, you are not alone. A large number of teeth are treated and saved annually with Endodontic, or root canal procedure. Bear in mind that root canal treatment does not induce pain, it alleviates it.

Inside the tooth is a soft tissue named the pulp which consists of connective tissue, blood vessels, and nerves. The pulp helps grow the root of the tooth during development. An entirely developed tooth can carry on without the pulp since the tooth keeps on being nourished by the tissues around it.

Endodontic treatment is much like having a regular filling and often can be accomplished in one or two appointments, varying with your personal situations and the state of your tooth. You can look forward to a comfortable experience during and after the procedure.

Getting root canal treatment to save your natural tooth has lots of benefits:

  • Natural outward appearance
  • Efficient chewing
  • Protects other teeth from extreme strain or wear
  • Normal biting force and feeling

How does Endodontic treatment save the tooth?

As a treatment performed on the interior of the tooth, the Endodontic procedure is required when the pulp becomes infected or inflamed. A lot of factors can be responsible for the infection or inflammation: massive decay, recurring dental treatments on the tooth, broken crowns, or a chip or crack in the tooth. Moreover, trauma to a tooth could cause pulp damage whether or not the tooth has visible cracks or chips. If left untreated, a pulp infection or inflammation can lead to an abscess or severe pain.

During Endodontic treatment or root canal, the infected or inflamed pulp is extracted, and the interior of the tooth is cleaned and disinfected, and then filled and held together with a rubber-like material known as gutta-percha. Following that, the tooth is restored with a filling or a crown for protection. After restoration, the tooth goes on to perform just like any other tooth.


The endodontic dental procedure enables you to continue eating the foods you enjoy, maintain your natural smile, and reduces the demand for recurring dental work. For more information about root canal procedures, please contact our office.
