What is the procedure for Root Canal Treatment?

Root Canal Treatment

  • Root canal therapy involves removal of the infected pulp tissue, disinfection and cleaning of the pulp chamber, 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 by a specialist in root canal therapy 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.
