What is a Root Canal

Posted on 10/24/2022 by Moyer Office
What is a Root CanalThe goals of root canal surgery are aimed at removing germs from a tooth's root. A root canal entails the removal of the inflamed or infected pulp as well as meticulous cleaning, disinfecting, filling, and sealing of the teeth inside. A person should not be frightened if a dentist advises them on having a root canal performed to treat a damaged tooth.

What is The Pulp?

Underneath your tooth, there is a pocket called the pulp. The presence of nerves in this tissue helps the tooth's root to grow. A grown tooth survives with pulp and also with not since it is still supplied by the surrounding tissues. Current root canal therapy is similar to a regular filling in that it may often be completed in one or two appointments. This depends on your particular circumstances and the condition of your tooth. A root canal is extremely efficient and that is why it is recommended to have the procedure.

How Long Does a Root Canal Take?

Before beginning your root canal, X-rays of the tooth will be taken in one of our dentist's offices. This enables evaluation of the severity of the damage and validates that root canal therapy is the best course of action. You should not feel a lot of discomfort following a root canal, however, you might be sensitive for the first few days. This will end after some time. These symptoms can be effectively addressed with the aid of painkillers because they are common. The side effects will go away after a short period. Call us today or visit us today at our clinics to get your root canal treatment.
