The Procedure

As the procedure commences, local anesthesia is administered for comfort, and a protective rubber dam is placed. Next, a precise opening is made at the top of the tooth to reach the pulp chamber. A dental file is then employed to thoroughly clean the infected tissue and shape the root canals, eliminating any traces of infection. X-rays are utilized to ensure the complete removal of infected pulp before proceeding with filling. Restoration typically involves placing a dental crown, although severe damage may require initial reconstruction with a post and core.

Frequently Asked Questions

Root Canal Cost

There are two common causes of infection: cavities and fractured/broken teeth. Both expose the pulp area to bacteria that live in saliva. These bacteria can cause an infection that can kill the pulp.

Without treatment, pus from the infected tooth can spread to the root tip and eventually pass to the jaw bone. This can cause an abscess (a pus pocket) that can damage the bone that surrounds the tooth. The pressure this causes can cause excruciating pain and, left untreated, can be life-threatening. An infected tooth can not heal on its own and will only get worse.

Symptoms tend to vary from patient to patient. Infected teeth may be sensitive to hot or cold, the area may be swollen or painful, or there may be a bad taste in the mouth. Occasionally there will be no symptoms at all.
