What is the procedure for Root Canal Treatment?

Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment involves removal of the infected pulp tissue, disinfection and cleaning of the pulp camber, followed by filling and sealing of the chamber with a biocompatible material called gutta-percha. Following root canal treatment, the tooth is thereafter restored with a tooth-colored filling or a permanent crown.

How many visits would a Root Canal Treatment require?

Root canal treatment may require one or more visits. An uncomplicated root canal treatment can be completed in one visit. However, in cases where the entire pulp chamber is infected and patient experiences pain, swelling or tenderness at the time of the appointment, the dentist may then choose a multi-appointment approach.

What are the possible side effects of a Root Canal Therapy?

Following root canal therapy, the tooth tends to become brittle, which why it is important to complete the restoration with a dental crown to protect the tooth. Some post-op pain for a few days is normal following root canal treatment and over the counter pain medications will help alleviate this pain.
