What is Root Canal Treatment and When it’s Needed

If you are suffering from an excruciating pain in the root of one or more of your teeth, it might be because the infection in your tooth has progressed through the root canal and has spread to the nerve. The pain might not subside despite taking over-the-counter painkillers and can make a visit to the dentist for a root canal procedure inevitable. It is an endodontic procedure during which the dentist will drill through your tooth to expose the root canal, clean the root canal of the infection, sever the infected part of the nerve, and fill the canal with a special sealant called gutta percha. A filling is then applied to the cavity and a crown may be recommended to prolong the life of the treated tooth. A root canal treatment relieves the pain permanently and can protect the tooth for a long time, especially when the tooth is covered with a crown.

Factors to Consider for Root Canal/ Endodontics Treatment

Root canal is perhaps the most notorious dental procedure because of the discomfort it can cause. Unless the root canal is performed perfectly and the affected tooth is sealed by a crown, there is risk of an infection relapse that might lead to a repeat procedure or even tooth removal. The dentist must remove the infection completely and seal the canal properly before filling the cavity.

In our Livonia clinic, we use advanced technology to detect and remove the infection causing bacteria hiding in the root canal. The opening is sealed completely to prevent food particles and liquids from seeping into the affected canal and causing complications. Trust our two decades of experience and thousands of satisfied patients who have had their root canal treatment completed successfully.

Root Canal/Endodontics Procedure at Platinum Dental Care, Livonia

If your tooth is still infected, Dr Chaben and Dr Young will prescribe medication to heal the infection. Sometimes, the dentist may decide to drill through the cusp and open the canal for faster healing. The infected root will be cleaned and the nerve will be removed. After making sure that no residual infection or bacteria remain in the affected canal and root, the root canal dentist will seal the canal and fill the cavity.

 A dental crown may be recommended for protecting the root canal and prolonging the life of the tooth. The procedure can take three or more sittings at our clinic. You’ll never have pain again and the treated tooth will keep working like a healthy tooth for years to come.
