SAVING YOUR NATURAL TOOTH – ROOT CANAL TREATMENT

1. WHAT IS ROOT CANAL TREATMENT?

There’s no need to be worried if your dentist or endodontist prescribes a root canal procedure
to treat a damaged or diseased tooth. Millions of teeth are treated and saved this way each year,
relieving pain and making teeth healthy again.
Inside your tooth, beneath the white enamel and a hard layer called dentin, is a soft tissue called
pulp. This tissue contains blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue, which help grow the root
of your tooth during its development. A fully developed tooth can survive without the pulp
because the tooth continues to be nourished by the tissues surrounding it.
Root canal treatment is designed to eliminate bacteria from the infected root canal, prevent reinfection
of the tooth and save the natural tooth.
When one undergoes a root canal, the inflamed or infected pulp is removed and the
inside of the tooth is carefully cleaned and disinfected, then filled and sealed

2. WHEN YOU NEED TO DO ROOT CANAL TREATMENT?

Root canal treatment is necessary when the pulp, the soft tissue inside the root canal,
becomes inflamed or infected. There are a whole host of reasons why you might need root
canal treatment:
* Deep decay
* Repeated dental procedures on the tooth
* Faulty crown
*Crack or chip in the tooth
In addition, an injury to a tooth may cause pulp damage even if the tooth has no visible chips
or cracks. If pulp inflammation or infection is left untreated, it can cause pain or lead to an
abscess.

3. WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF ROOT CANAL PROCEDURE?

Virtually Pain-Free Procedure
Root canal treatment is virtually painless and often leaves you with less discomfort during recovery
than if you have your natural tooth extracted. Thanks to modern techniques and effective anesthesia,
patients who experience root canals are six times more likely to describe it as painless than patients
who have a tooth extracted.


Efficient & Cost-Effective
Tooth extraction can take longer than root canal treatment due to follow-up appointments required for a denture, bridge or implant; plus the cost may be higher. Most dental insurance plans cover endodontic treatment.


Visually Appealing Result
Crowns not only function like natural teeth; they look great, too. Improve your smile and laugh out loud again with root canal treatment.


When you undergo a root canal or other endodontic treatment, the inflamed or infected pulp is
removed and the inside of the tooth is carefully cleaned and disinfected, then filled and sealed with a rubber-like material called gutta-percha. Afterwards, the tooth is restored with a crown or filling for protection and will continue to function like any other tooth.

4. WHAT ARE THE COMMON MYTHS ABOUT ROOT CANAL PROCEDURE?

Myth 1: Root canal treatment is painful.

That may have been the case decades ago, but with modern technology and anesthetics, you
won’t experience any more pain than if you went to have a cavity filled. The pain from a
severe toothache, often caused by damaged tissues in the tooth, can be easily remedied when
an endodontist removes the damaged tissue through root canal treatment. In addition,
endodontists are experts in pain management, and most cases can be treated quickly and
comfortably.

Myth 2: Root canal treatment causes illness.

Information you may find on the Internet or elsewhere, claiming that if you receive a root
canal treatment you’re more likely to become ill or contract a disease in the future simply
isn’t true. This false claim was based on long-debunked and poorly designed research
conducted nearly a century ago, long before modern medicine understood the causes of many
diseases. There is no valid, scientific evidence linking root canal treatment to disease
elsewhere in the body.

Myth 3: It’s better to pull a tooth than have root canal treatment.

Saving your natural teeth, if possible, is always the best option. Nothing artificial can replace
the look or function of a natural tooth so it’s important to always consider root canal
treatment as an option. Endodontic treatment has a high success rate and many root canaltreated teeth last a lifetime. Replacing an extracted tooth with a bridge or implant requires
more time in treatment and may result in further procedures to neighbouring teeth and
supporting tissue
