Root Canal Therapy
A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures and this simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need of dental implants or bridges.
This therapy usually involves local anesthesia and may be completed in one or more visits depending on the treatment required. There is about 90% success for this type of treatment.
If the chance of success is unfavorable, you will be informed at the time of consultation or when a complication becomes evident during or after treatment. You will be able to return to your normal routine the same day.
Occasionally, a nonsurgical root canal procedure alone cannot save your tooth and your endodontist will recommend apicectomy.
In this microsurgical procedure, the endodontist opens the gum tissue near the tooth to see the underlying bone and to remove any infected tissue. The end of the root is also removed and a small filling may be placed to seal the end of the root canal.
Few sutures are placed to help the tissue heal. Over a period of months, the bone heals around the end of the root. Local anesthetics make this procedure comfortable, and most patients return to their normal activities the next day.
A perforation is a hole in the crown or root of the tooth that can occur naturally as a result of internal or external resorption. A perforation can also be caused by excessive tooth structure removal during root canal preparation.
Endodontists have advanced training and considerable experience to repair perforations and successfully complete the root canal treatment. Perforation repair, followed by root canal therapy can often save the tooth.
After a trauma occurs to the teeth, endodontic intervention is often required, along with other dental care. The specific care must be adapted to the situation, but may include splinting loose teeth, replanting avulsed teeth, root canal treatment, or extraction and implant placement.
In dentistry, resorption is a term used when referring to changes that take place with respect to the roots of your teeth that are not exclusively the result of decay or fracture.
