A few decades ago, the only existing solution to treat an infected or extensively damaged tooth was extraction; Now, thanks to modern dentistry, these teeth can be restored through endodontic treatment, also called root canal.

This procedure allows to recover the function and aesthetic of the tooth so it doesn’t have to be extracted; The best thing is that this treatment has excellent long-term results, allowing the tooth to be kept for a lifetime with proper care. At our Los Algodones dental clinic, our root canal specialist Dr. Bojorquez, will determine if you are a candidate for this treatment, and restore any damaged tooth.

What is a root canal?

When the pulp of a tooth becomes infected or becomes swollen, causing pain or abscesses, it’s necessary to treat its root in order to solve the problem and prevent tooth loss. This treatment is called endodontic or root canal treatment. It is a fairly simple procedure that will save the appearance and function of your natural teeth.

The main objective of this procedure will be to extract the pulp of the tooth in case it is damaged or infected. If the tooth’s pulp is infected it can cause a lot of pain and form abscesses at the end of the root, which can cause severe damage to the jaw bone. Therefore, it will be necessary to solve the infection as soon as possible to avoid major consequences.

During the procedure, the endodontist must remove the infected pulp and clean any pus deposits that may have formed on the gum. When the tooth is empty and clean, it is filled again with a special material. This way you can preserve the tooth, avoid damage to the bone and eliminate all aches and pains.

When is a root canal treatment necessary?

Root canals are done on teeth whose pulp has died or is infected. This can happen due to cavities that have become too deep, abscesses caused by injuries or trauma, tooth fractures, gum disease, and even crowns or bridges that have not been fitted correctly.

Going to a dental clinic on time will allow your dentist to solve the problem while it is still possible. By preventing tooth loss, you will not have to worry about having to undergo a dental implant or other procedures to replace it.

During your first visit to Dental Solutions Los Algodones, one of our dentists will examine your mouth and the affected tooth to determine if you’re a good candidate for a root canal procedure. This treatment cannot be done if the infection in the pulp has caused damage to the outer layer of the root or if the patient has suffered an injury that has fractured the tooth vertically.

To see the conditions of the tooth root, your dentist will take x-rays from your mouth. In our clinic, we have all the equipment to perform x rays and CT Scans during your visit. If you have constant pain or chewing pain, swelling, sensitivity to heat or cold, or fever, call us to make an appointment so we can begin treatment.

How is the procedure?

To understand the process of endodontics is necessary to know a little about the tooth structure. Inside each tooth, there is a space housing the root canal system and the pulp, (that is the living tissue of the tooth). The pulp includes blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue.

Root canal procedures are generally performed in several appointments to offer more comfort to patients; this depends directly on the damage that the tooth has suffered. The procedure It’s performed under local anesthesia, so it is completely pain-free.

These are the steps to restore a tooth through a root canal.

  • To begin, the doctor applies local anesthesia in the area to work on. In patients who suffer from anxiety during dental visits, a dose of a mild tranquilizer can be given to make them feel more relaxed.

  • The dentist drills the tooth to access the pulp. In the case of molars and premolars, the perforation is made in the upper part of the crown; in the front teeth, the drilling is done at the back.
  • The affected tissue is removed, and the pulp chamber and internal root canals are cleaned and enlarged with precision instruments. If the root canal procedure will be performed in parts, after this step the dentist will temporarily fill the crown to continue with the treatment on the next visit.
  • Then the root canals and the pulp chamber are filled with gutta-percha (a thermoplastic material) and sealed whit special cement. A metal rod can also be placed in the root canals for added support.
  • The treatment ends with the restoration of the crown, to preserve the natural look and the tooth functionality. A new crown can also be placed in cases where the natural one cannot be restored, or if the doctor considers that the native tooth could easily fracture.

 

Although it may seem complicated, in the hands of an expert this dental treatment can be completed without problems and you will be able to eat your favorite foods again without feeling pain in a few days.

Benefits of root canal treatment

Root canals prevent the extraction of natural teeth.

  • It is an effective way to recover the functions and aesthetics of the tooth.
  • Diseases as a result of infection, such as degeneration of the jaw bone, are avoided. So you should not submit to other dental procedures like bone grafts or sinus lifts.
  • By not extracting the natural teeth, you will not have to worry about replacing them with dental implants, bridges, or dentures. At the same time, the adjacent teeth will stay in place.
  • You will be able to keep your oral health and wear a beautiful smile.

To consider after the treatment

  • If the dentist has recommended doing the treatment in parts, it is important to be careful when chewing while you have the temporary filling in the dental crown, to avoid dislodging and the exposition of the inside of the tooth.
  • Chewing pain may be felt right after treatment and tenderness for the first few days. You can relieve pain by using over-the-counter medicines like ibuprofen.
  • To ensure that the treatment has been successful, your dentist will take x-rays days after the procedure to compare them with those taken at the beginning.
  • Teeth fixed with root canals can develop cavities, so it will be important to maintain dental care and oral hygiene.
