Why Root Canal Therapy?
People usually think root canal therapy is a complicated and scary painful experience but it is far from it. When the nerve becomes infected due to a deep cavity it allows bacteria to seep in, or injury due to trauma, it can die. Damaged or dead pulp causes increased blood flow, hence increasing the pressure inside the tooth. Pain in the tooth is commonly felt when biting down, chewing, or applying hot or cold foods and drinks.
Without treatment, the infection will spread , bone around the tooth will begin to degenerate, and the tooth gets loose ,can also spread to surrounding teeth..If abscess develops it can cause life threatening dental emergency.
Getting a Root Canal
Before beginning your root canal therapy, you will be given a strong topical and local anesthetic to minimize any discomfort during the procedure. Next, your Dr Sidhu will place a rubber dam (isolate from other teeth) and create a hole in the affected area permitting her to access the tooth’s root canal and pulp properly. Any decay, infection, and bacteria will be gently removed with rotary and hand files, affected tissue is cleaned and reshaped and irrigated. Medication may be inserted into the area to help fight bacteria.Finally canal is filled with gutta percha,temporary crown is placed, with permanent crown on subsequent visit.
What happens after treatment?
Swelling may cause discomfort for a few days, which can be controlled by an over-the-counter pain killer.For a few days after the procedure, eat soft foods, and chew on the opposite side. Dr. Sidhu will give you an antibiotic if necessary.
