What Is A Root Canal?

 

A root canal consists of performing pulp therapy, which involves removing the tissue from the tooth to kill it. Determining if a root canal is right for you is only possible after a thorough evaluation from the dentist.

Mexican dentists will take an X-ray with our top-niche technology of your affected area to reveal any bone infection. Despite popular beliefs, this procedure isn’t painful or difficult since the patient is given a local anesthetic before numbing the area.The contaminated pulp becomes expelled from the tooth, cleaning and sterilizing the internal parts of it with antiseptic and antibacterial solutions with utmost precision.

Then filled and fixed with a rubber-like material called gutta-percha. It is essential to seal the canals to keep bacteria from contaminating said territory again.When the tooth heals, it becomes reestablished with either a dental crown or filling, depending on how much further the infection went. The tooth will keep on functioning like your natural tooth would.

You need but a single visit to the dentist’s office for a root canal treatment. However, you might require more visits depending on the complexity and how far the infection has gone.

Root Canal Process

Root canals have 3 steps to be covered. The root canal surgery happens in the first one and it is performed by a specialist in endodontic treatments. On the second step a general doctor takes action in order to build up a post to which the crown will be attached. For the final step the tooth is ready to have a crown on it or depending on the case, a simple tooth filling can be executed.

To treat the infection in the root canal, the bacteria need to be removed. This can be done by either:

  • Removing the bacteria from the root canal system (root canal treatment)
  • Removing the tooth (extraction)

However, removing the tooth isn’t usually recommended as it’s better to keep as many of your natural teeth as possible.

After the bacteria have been removed, the root canal will be filled and the tooth sealed with a filling or crown. In most cases the inflamed tissue near the tooth will heal naturally.

Before having root canal treatment, you’ll usually be given a local anaesthetic. This means the procedure shouldn’t be painful and should be no more unpleasant than having a filling. Root canal treatment is usually successful. In about 9 out of 10 cases a tooth can survive for up to 10 years after root canal treatment.

Preparation. Before having root canal treatment, your dentist may take a series of X-rays of the affected tooth. This allows them to build up a clear picture of the root canal and assess the extent of any damage. Root canal treatment is usually carried out under local anaesthetic, a painkilling medication that numbs a specific area of the body.

In some cases where the tooth has died and is no longer sensitive, it may not be necessary to use a local anaesthetic.

Occasionally, teeth may be difficult to anaesthetise. On these occasions, your dentist can use special local anaesthetic techniques to ensure your treatment isn’t painful.

Removing the pulp. Your dentist will place a rubber sheet (dam) around the tooth to ensure it is dry during treatment. The dam also prevents you swallowing or breathing in any chemicals the dentist uses.

Your dentist will use a series of small files to enlarge the canals and make them a regular shape so they can be filled.This part of the treatment may take several hours to complete, and may need to be carried out over a number of visits.

Your front incisor and canine teeth (biting teeth) usually have a single root containing one root canal.

The premolars and back molar teeth (chewing teeth) have two or three roots, each containing either one or two root canals. The more roots a tooth has, the longer the treatment will take to complete.

If the treatment needs to be carried out over several sessions, your dentist may put a small amount of medication in the cleaned canal in between visits to kill any remaining bacteria. The tooth will then be sealed using a temporary filling. If you have symptoms from the infection, such as a raised temperature or large swelling, you may be given antibiotics to help manage and prevent further infection.

Sealing and fixing the tooth. At your next visit, the temporary filling and medication within the tooth is removed and the root canal filling will be inserted. This, along with a filling, seals the tooth and prevents reinfection.

Root-filled teeth are more likely to break than healthy unrestored teeth, so your dentist may suggest placing a crown on the tooth to protect it. In some cases a root-filled tooth may darken, particularly if it has died as a result of injury like a knock to the tooth.

There are several ways your dentist can treat discolouration, such as whitening the tooth using chemicals.

Recovering from root canal treatment

It’s important to look after your teeth when recovering from root canal treatment. You should avoid biting on hard foods until all of your treatment is complete. After your final treatment, your restored tooth shouldn’t be painful, although it may feel sensitive for a few days.

Over-the-counter painkillers, such as paracetamol or ibuprofen, can be used to relieve any discomfort. Return to your dentist if you continue to experience pain or swelling after using painkillers.

In most cases it’s possible to prevent the need for further root canal treatment by:

  • Maintaining good oral hygiene
  • Not consuming too much sugary food
  • Giving up smoking if you smoke

Benefits of a Root Canal Treatment in Mexico

Avoid hard foods. Biting on dense foods just days after your root canal procedure could cause some irreversible damage. Putting pressure on the recovering tooth might cause the sealant to break or fall off.

Pay no attention to tooth sensitivity. When finished with treatment, it will be normal to have a tender feeling on the restored tooth for a few days. Tooth sensitivity and how long it lasts depends on each patient since recovery times vary from person to person.

Avoid biting hard foods. Until the treatment is complete since putting pressure to the recovering tooth could cause the sealant (gutta-percha) to break or fall off. Once the procedure ends, the restored tooth might feel a little sensitive for a few days, but not painful.

In the case of experiencing pain or swelling, you should return to our dentist in Tijuana to see what’s causing this problem.

When tooth extraction occurs, teeth may drift and shift, causing changes in your bite. Said changes could bring about serious problems, like occlusion malfunction, or even worse, TMJ (temporomandibular) disorders.
