Not only can root canal infections cause excruciating pain, but they can also lead to abscesses and even tooth loss if they are not properly treated. Endodontic operations should be performed as soon as possible to avoid future complications and the need for further procedures.
You could need root canal surgery for a variety of reasons, including the following:
Anyone who is suffering discomfort or pain in the pulp (the tooth’s soft tissue which is made of nerves, blood vessels and tissue) should undergo root canal treatment. Frequently, patients are referred to our practice with knowledge of an existing root canal problem.
In general, your tooth will be saved from a potentially fatal infection thanks to our root canal treatment. After a root canal, your tooth will be able to function normally for years to come, allowing you to eat, drink, speak, and live your life normally.
At The Dental Lounges, we use the latest anaesthetics and a precise injection method to keep you completely relaxed throughout your root canal procedure. The procedure is carried out by a root canal specialist who is well-known in the dental community and to whom many other dental specialists recommend their patients. The Dental Lounges is equipped with the most up-to-date technology to give patients the finest possible care, including:
We provide local anaesthetics to our patients to guarantee that they do not experience any discomfort throughout the procedure. We also give sedatives for those who are apprehensive. Our root canal dentist has years of expertise and will make certain that you are kept informed and relaxed during the operation. Depending on your situation, a porcelain crown or a porcelain veneer might be placed over the weaker tooth to provide additional support.
A root canal reduces the need for more invasive operations, such as tooth extraction. It not only helps you to maintain excellent dental health, but it can also help you improve your overall health by avoiding problems that are related to poor oral health. Heart disease, lung infections, diabetes, and gastrointestinal infections are just a few of the problems that might occur. As a consequence, both the individual’s dental and general health are improved.FIND OUT MORE
Root canals are feared by many people because they believe they would be painful. While other dental treatments, including root extraction, may cause pain and discomfort, root canals are essentially pain-free. Endodontists utilise the most up-to-date procedures to remove diseased pulp whilst also cleaning and sterilising the surrounding region in a quick and virtually painless procedure.FIND OUT MORE
For your comfort the area in question is numbed. It is also protected from decay by a dental dam, which is a thin, flexible sheet that is put over your teeth.
The pulp chamber is reached via the crown of the tooth. The pulp is extracted from the pulp chamber and each root canal. Root canals are cleansed, shaped, and disinfected before filling.
A rubber-like material is used to seal the treated root canals.
The root canals of your tooth are sealed off temporarily with a filling.
Finally, a crown or a permanent filling is used to restore the tooth's function, form, and appearance after your dentist has removed the temporary filling.
Not at all, since dentists now use a local anaesthetic to numb both the tooth and its surroundings before the procedure, the treatment should be virtually pain-free for you.
For a few days, your tooth may be a little sensitive, but over-the-counter medicine or anti-inflammatory medications like ibuprofen can typically alleviate any discomfort. The temporary filling will be removed in a few days, and you'll be told not to chew on that tooth until you get a permanent filling put in. For severely damaged teeth, a full-coverage crown may be necessary. These alternatives will be addressed with you.
A root canal procedure has a lifespan of 10-15 years. There are, however, measures that may be used to extend the life of your tooth. It is possible to have it crowned, which will boost its strength and durability. Your dentist at The Dental Lounges can help you schedule and keep semi-annual dental checks as well as guarantee that you have good oral hygiene.
The removal of the inner portion of the tooth has the effect of weakening the overall strength of the dental structure. However, dental restorations such as an onlay or a dental crown might help to strengthen the tooth. We will give you the appropriate therapy to ensure that your tooth remains strong once the root canal procedure is completed.
Brushing and flossing your teeth daily will help to prevent tooth decay. Consume a nutritious diet that is low in sugar and limit your intake of acidic drinks such as soda. Have expert cleanings and examinations performed regularly. Additionally, if you participate in sports, you should consider getting a custom-made mouthguard to protect your teeth from harm while playing.
