A root canal is highly recommended if the patient’s tooth is deeply infected. The primary cause of a severe toothache is when the pulp inside your tooth become infected by bacterias. If the infected area will not be treated, it may cause tooth infection and can lead to tooth loss.
The procedure usually takes two dental visits. Here is the step by step procedure of root canal therapy:
First, our dentist will inject local anesthesia to the infected tooth. You can feel a bit of pain, but as anesthesia takes place, your tooth becomes numb. When the tooth becomes anesthetized, our dentist will place a small piece of rubber sheet to seclude the tooth during the procedure.
Second, our dentist will use a small drill to access the internal part of the tooth. He or She will drill the top part of the infected tooth to make an opening. After opening the tooth using the drill, the dentist will use small files to clean the infected pulp from the tooth. When the dentist finally cleared the infected pulp, our dentist will use files to reshape the internal part of the tooth and wash away the remaining pulp inside your tooth. Our dentist will use a solution to assure that the tooth is free from bacterias.
Third, when the tooth is completely clean and dry inside, our dentist will fill a rubber-like material called gutta-percha. After loading the tooth, the dentist will close the tooth by place a temporary filling for the meantime. Our dentist will set the next appointment after a few weeks.
After a few weeks, our dentist will place a permanent crown or will perform a cosmetic restoration on the top of the tooth. Afterward, the dentist will orient you on how to treat well your root canal. After completing the Root Canal Therapy Manhattan, you will experience sensitivity and pain for the first few days. To adverse the pain and tenderness, our dentist will prescribe over-the-counter pain relievers like ibuprofen or naproxen.
