Root Canal Treatment

Endodontic Treatment, commonly referred to as Root Canal, involves the removal of bacteria from an infected root canal or the nerve within a tooth. In the initial phase of the root canal procedure, our skilled dentists extract the infected pulp, followed by thorough cleaning and disinfection of the area. Finally, the cleaned space is filled and sealed.

Root Canal Treatment

Symptoms Indicating the Need for a Root Canal Treatment

1

Discoloured tooth

2

Swelling and pain of the gum around the infected tooth

3

Prolonged sensitivity to cold or hot

4

Tooth sensitivity when chewing

5

Pus discharge

6

Swollen and tender lymph nodes

If a tooth with the symptoms mentioned above is not treated, it may not just cause discomfourt, but the infection also poses potential health risks. Some of the common reasons why one may have an infected root canal include cracked or chipped tooth, dental trauma (physical injury to the tooth), and deep decay. Most of the time the reason may not be known.

At Golden Square Dental, we offer dental treatments at the hands of experienced dentists who are trained in the usage of modern dentistry tools to perform root canal treatments. Depending on the severity of infection, up to three dental visits may be required for the treatment of the root canal.

During the root canal procedure, the dentist will use a drill to create a small opening in the affected tooth. For front teeth, the drilling is performed at the back, while for molars, the hole is made on top. Our compassionate dentist employs specialized endodontic tools to meticulously clean the infected nerve area. After thorough cleaning, an antibiotic solution is applied to eliminate any remaining bacteria in the nerve chamber.

The dentist uses a thick rubber-like material known as ‘gutta-percha’ to fill the root chamber. It eliminates any chances of infection from reoccurring in the future and seals the tooth with a filing.

People who have undergone root canal treatment are advised to place a dental crown over the treated tooth. Cleaning the nerve causes loss of blood supply, and without protection, the tooth may become brittle and prone to damage in the future.
