Why is a root canal necessary?
Teeth have health that is important and should always be a priority, just like our hair, nails, skin, and the rest of our body. When our teeth are not properly cared for, they can become inflamed and infected from the inside out. Some other reasons for root canal therapy include repeated dental procedures, bad crowns, cracks, and chips.
Here at Platinum Dental, we understand the importance of preserving your natural teeth. This is why we offer root canal therapy. With proper care and treatment, most teeth that have been treated with root canal therapy can last a lifetime!
What happens during a
- Diagnosis: Your dentist examines your teeth and finds infection or decay that is cause for root canal treatment.
- X-Rays: Many dental x-rays will be taken to guide our dentists hands and show them exactly where your tooth needs to be drained of infected pulp.
- Anesthesia: Thanks to the careful hands and minds of our dentists and this liquid gold, we are able to relieve you of any pain that might have otherwise been caused by a root canal.
- Pulp Drainage: While you are comfortably unconscious, your dentist will gently drill a hole into your tooth that will then allow them to remove infected tooth pulp and any tooth decay with small files.
- Filling: A temporary filling is then used to seal the hole and allow your body to naturally heal any infection that may remain.
- Crowning: Your tooth is permanently sealed and then covered with a dental crown to keep it safe and strong like a normal, healthy tooth.
