Healthy Root Leads To Happy Tooth.

It is an idiomatic term for dental operation, endodontic therapy, wherein the pulp is cleaned out so that the teeth are protected.

The main focus is to remove the damaged pulp and make the tooth safe from extraction.

An Overview Of Root Canal

  • The pulp of the tooth has soft tissues inside, which has blood supply in it. Through this tooth receives nutrients, and your teeth can sense the hotness and coldness accordingly. The tissue is prone to damage if there is any deep dental decay in it or has undergone fracture or trauma from recurring dental procedure.
  • If tooth becomes diseased or injured, bacteria breed inside the tissues, scattering infection from natural crown to the inside of the root, hence resulting in complete decay.
  • Which in turn creates small pockets in the gum, where pus formation takes place, and hence the bone inside of it gets damage. This produces pain and creates sensitivity to heat and cold, resulting in swelling and redness.
  • The treatment is performed under local anesthesia. A rubber like composition labeled as rubber dam is used to place in the mouth, to wrap the base of the tooth and hence keeping it dry.
  • He makes a small incision in the top of the tooth, to reach inside the pulp chamber. This helps to mitigate pressure inside the tooth and reduces pain.
  • Series of X-rays is done, to detect the condition of the root canal. Small wires like files are affixed inside the canal, to clean the food particles in there. It is just like irrigation. The canals are enlarged as per requirement, to insert a material called gutta percha.
  • Dentist can also seal or leave the tooth open to deplete the rest over material. A metal is placed in the chamber of the pulp, for strengthening the tooth structure. After this he prescribes an antibiotic so that infection does not spread in the mouth. Gutta percha is used to prevent any further infestation of bacteria.
  • At times gold or porcelain crown or gold inlay is fixed to harden the entire structure.

Advantages Of Root Canal Therapy:

  • It protects the tooth from decay. Until the person goes under this therapy he will spend sleepless night with soreness and ache.
  • If the damage gets intense dentist will prescribe to extract tooth. But if you want to save the tooth then root canal is the safest option. In later period tooth may be of no use but root canal will help the tooth to remain in that place.
  • For cases if you have already lost tooth, then you can only get it back with the help of prosthesis. This may take good amount of expense, so you can shift to root canal therapy; to save the teeth..
  • The success rate is 95% and heading each year to achieve the best.

A crown is placed over tooth, to protect it. If you have undergone root canal then act as dentist has prescribed you and avoid chewing hard food particles. The more you take in antibiotics the more sensitivity fades away. Come and fix an appointment with Affordable Dentist near Me, Fort Worth.

If you like your teeth and mouth do not go here. At one point they were good. As expansion happened and cost went up everywhere, I feel as if they forgot about the people sitting in the seats paying for the service. When you pay for a dental implant you expect that it stays in. That is why you spent money on it. Needless to say that it did not work and somehow did not work. They had to fix and replace the tooth. Then it happened again. At this point it was not worth them messing up again, but after seeing a new dentist they said it would be best that whoever messed it should fix it. Now back here, they said they had to remove the original implant and let the gum heal before putting in a new one. The pain experienced at this next visit lasted almost a week and no it was a horrible experience. The dentist who was working on my mouth started talking about lunch and just left me to be closed by someone else. No next steps and I had to call in to get a prescription for the pain. After it “healed” no more pain, I went back because something didn’t feel right. They told me there may be some infection and take some antibiotics. Now on the day before my visit I was surprised by a implant coming out on it own.

So to start off I'm not happy about going to the dentist due to high prices and insurance not always working when it needs to, however, when I came to this dentist office I was so relieved. Yes the prices are high (all dental places are) BUT they have payment plans and work with you to try and help you find the best pricing for you. I had an outrageous amount of work needed to be done and the front desk girl PAULETTE was an absolute angel with helping me out. Everyone was super nice and very efficient! I got my new patient consultation and a root canal done in the same day! Will definitely be coming back!
