Is It Time for a Root Canal? Let’s Find Out

Root Canal

A root canal treatment at our clinic near Pitt Town is used to repair and save teeth that have had their pulp exposed because of infection or trauma. Root canal treatment first involves extracting the infected nerve and pulp, then cleaning and sealing the root. A crown later supports the tooth.

At Good Smile, we exclusively treat our patients with the most recent technology to properly clean and prepare all tooth canals before filling them.

You could have excruciating toothaches due to a number of reasons apart from pulp decay. It is easier to identify if you are in need of a root canal when you visit a reputed dentist for root canal treatment near Pitt Town.

Good Smile Dental (Windsor) root canal treatment follows best practice procedures.

Every treatment at Good Smile Dental near Pitt Town begins with a consultation. Your first visit will be an assessment of your affected tooth to find out if a root canal treatment is required. If a root canal treatment is needed, our dentist will develop a dental care plan with you and thoroughly explain the procedure to you.

On the day of the treatment, you will be providing local anesthesia to numb the infected tooth and surrounding gums. If you nervous at Good Smile Dental (Windsor) can offer you sedation to relax you (Nitrous oxide, oral sedatives, and intravenous (IV) sedation).

To keep the infected tooth clean and dry our dentist will put a small rubber dam over the area. This is done before starting the root canal treatment.

To start the treatment the pulp is accessed through a small tooth crown opening.

Tiny dental instruments are used to remove the infected pulp.

The pulp and root canals are cleaned, disinfected, and shaped after removing the pulp.

We will fill the empty canals with gutta-percha, a flexible, rubbery dental material.

Our dentist will fill the tooth with a dental filling to prevent bacteria from re-entering.

The final step is the placement of a dental crown. The dental crown will protect the treated tooth and restore your bite. Crowns are made to order and typically take two to three weeks to complete. While your crown is being made, the temporary crown is removed, and our dentist will place your permanent crown on the tooth that has had the root canal treatment.

Root Canal

A root canal treatment is used to repair and save teeth that have had their pulp exposed because of infection or trauma. Root canal treatment first involves extracting the infected nerve and pulp, then cleaning and sealing the root. A crown later supports the tooth.

At Good Smile, we exclusively treat our patients with the most recent technology to properly clean and prepare all canals before filling them.

The procedure of root canal:

  1. General Anesthesia: To begin, we will give you local anesthesia to numb the infected tooth and surrounding gums (Nitrous oxide, oral sedatives, and intravenous (IV) sedation are also used in dentistry to help you relax).
  2. Implantation of a dental dam: Your doctor will put a small rubber dam over the area before beginning root canal treatment. During the procedure, this isolates the tooth and keeps it dry.
  3. A hole for access: The pulp is accessed through a small tooth crown opening.
  4. Removal of the pulp: The nerves, blood vessels, and tissues inside the tooth are removed.
  5. Using tiny dental instruments.
  6. Canal sculpting: The pulp chamber and root canals are cleaned, disinfected, and shaped.
  7. After removing the pulp.
  8. Filling the canals: We will fill the empty canals with gutta-percha, a flexible, rubbery.
  9. Dental material.
  10. The tooth is sealed: Your doctor will fill the tooth with a dental filling to prevent.
  11. Bacteria from re-entering.
  12. Putting the finishing touches on the restoration: A dental crown will be required to protect the treated tooth and restore your bite. Crowns are made to order and typically take two to three weeks to complete. When your crown is finished, the temporary crown is removed, and your doctor will install a permanent crown.
