A root canal could save one of your teeth
This common procedure owes its name to the cleaning of small canals located inside the tooth and could someday save one of your natural teeth, help you avoid dental implants or even a (or) bridge.
At the center of your tooth is the pulp, a collection of blood vessels that helps build your tooth. Throughout your life, this pulp can become diseased due to trauma, deep decay, cracks, or repeated dental procedures. The root canal procedure aims to restore this damaged or infected tooth and preserve its integrity by removing the pulp, cleaning and disinfecting the cavity and finally filling and sealing it.
An effective and painless treatment
If you experience any of these symptoms (swelling at the base of a tooth, increased temperature, sensitivity, or radiating pain in the teeth and gums) Dr. Habra will probably recommend a nonsurgical treatment to remove the diseased pulp. This treatment usually involves local anesthesia and can be completed in one or more visits depending on the extent of the treatment required. If your tooth does not lend itself to an endodontic treatment or if the chances of success are unfavorable, you will be informed at the time of your visit.
As we use local anesthetics to eliminate any discomfort associated with your root canal, you will be able to drive home and return directly to your daily routine after the treatment.
