How Root Canal Treatment Works

In years past, damaged pulp tissue had generally been removed altogether before attempting to save it. However, root canal therapy in today’s world has allowed for a root canal dentist to find a simpler, safer solution that can save your tooth from removal.

So what is root canal treatment? It’s the process used to save the infected tooth suffused with damaged pulp, further preventing the infection from spreading across into other adjacent teeth.

Pulp exists within each tooth, serving as the cushion for the nerve and a pathway for nutrients. Once this pulp becomes damaged or diseased, the pulp begins to die off, leaving scar tissue.

As stated earlier, this tissue used to be removed immediately; yet, root canal treatment can now save the affected tooth through a simple cleaning and reshaping of the canal. To finalise the procedure, the canal will be sealed for future prevention of any more issues by a crown.

How Can Someone Know When They Have Pulp Tissue Damage?

Every patient will undoubtedly have varying degrees of symptoms, but there are common symptoms of injured pulp:

  • Noticeable pain when chewing or biting down
  • Teeth sensitive to hot and cold food/drinks
  • Swelling of the face near the tissue site

These can be indicators of many generic oral health issues, so don’t assume root canal therapy will be the automatic answer. Regardless of the diagnosis, it’s highly recommended that the patient meet with a root canal dentist to seek treatment.

Why Treatment is Vital for a Healthy Smile

A damaged tooth will not heal itself; therefore, leaving the infected tooth untouched can potentially cause an abscess near the root of the tooth, bone deterioration, or consistent, intense pain.

Most importantly, delaying treatment can lead to little chance of saving the tooth if left infected too long. And once the infection spreads, it can cause illness, blood poisoning, more swelling and fever.

For a 30-90 minute procedure that many patients report as easy to bear as a basic filling, getting root canal treatment is a clear necessity for a bright, healthy smile.

Even the recovery period is low-maintenance, as only slight inflammation or discomfort should be expected for the length of a few days. Generic painkillers should leave one feeling comfortable until it’s fully healed, so the patient won’t have excessive recovery time.

Both Dr. Frank & Simone were a pleasure - attentive, gentle, informative and up front.
Modern clinic and equipment. Dr Frank was able to identify & fix the cause of my pain that other Dentists seemed to miss.
All in all a fantastic experience - Highly recommend !

Great service - first time I'd ever had my teeth professionally cleaned and was a bit apprehensive. But, it was quick, painless and my teeth felt amazing afterwards.
Dr Nikakhtar also gave me practical advice for how to keep my teeth healthy and also walked through the x-rays with me so I knew what was going on.
All of the practice staff are also really friendly! Highly recommended

I was extremely impressed with my recent experience at Abbotsford Dental Clinic. The staff were great with my children and I really liked the way
Dr Nikakhtar kept me informed of whatever he was seeing and thinking during their appointments. I really appreciate Dr Nikakhtar's holistic approach.
I was impressed with the dental work alone but on top of that Dr Nikakhtar picked up on issues that impact my health in general now,
and would have in the future if I had remained unaware. There was definitely a sense that our overall wellbeing was of importance.
This is all on top of the clinic being very modern and clean, and a very cleverly placed TV to distract you during the examination! I highly recommend this clinic.
