Root Canal Treatment in Dubai

What is root canal treatment?

A dental procedure used to treat infectious pulp in root canals of tooth is termed Root canal treatment or endodontic treatment. The procedure involves removing the infected or damaged pulp from the tooth, cleaning and disinfecting the root canal system and then filling and sealing the roots and tooth to prevent further infection. Root canal treatment helps to save a tooth that would otherwise need to be extracted.

Signs of Root canal treatment

  • Extreme pain on biting
  • Deeply carious tooth
  • Chipped tooth
  • Swelling in soft tissues around tooth
  • An injury that damaged the pulp

When is root canal treatment necessary?

There are several situations in which the dentist decides to perform a root canal treatment. Some examples include:

  • Severe toothache
  • Nerve damage due to caries (a cavity)
  • Deep fillings affecting the nerve
  • Preparation for the placement of a prosthodontics

Are you suffering from inflamed gums or severe toothache?

Your teeth are surrounded by living tissue called gums. The natural pink color of your gums indicates a healthy situation. Your gums can become inflamed due to plaque, tartar, or bacteria that accumulate around the teeth. This will lead to a change of color from pink to red inflamed gums. Several reasons might cause this such as insufficient oral hygiene, medical conditions like diabetes or pregnancy, or the use of certain medications. The accumulation of bacteria creates inflammation around the teeth, causing the gums to recede and become inflamed.

What happens during a root canal treatment?

Once the diagnosis is done then root canal treatment is performed in one or two visits and involve following steps:

  • The dentist first administered the local anesthesia in soft tissues of the affected tooth.
  • The dentist removes the inflamed tissues from the tooth and makes access to canals located within tooth roots. (The canals differ in each tooth, some teeth have one canal or others such as the molars, they might have 3-4 canals.)
  • Then the canals are cleaned thoroughly with small files and rinsed with a disinfecting liquid to prevent future inflammations.
  • Once all canals are cleaned and dried rigorously, they are filled with gutta-percha, a filling material.
  • Lastly, a filling is placed to restore the tooth and to prevent any bacteria getting into your teeth.
  • It might be necessary to put a crown after root canal treatment to prevent the tooth from fracturing.

Pain after root canal treatment

After the root canal treatment, you might experience post-operative pain or slight irritation. This is very common after a root canal treatment since it has a major impact on your nervous system and on your teeth. Post-operative pain differs per person; however, it might last for two to five days or sometimes even longer. In very few cases, it may take a few weeks for the symptoms to disappear.

In this case pain management is important, so stick with painkillers such as Ibuprofen or Paracetamol. However, if the pain persists, contact DentalZorg the dentist will provide a necessary prescription.
