Understanding Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment is necessary when the pulp, the soft tissue inside the root canal, becomes inflamed or infected. This can be due to deep decay, repeated dental procedures on the tooth, or a crack or chip in the tooth.

The Root Canal Procedure

The root canal process typically involves:

  • Removing the inflamed or infected pulp.
  • Carefully cleaning and disinfecting the inside of the tooth.
  • Filling and sealing the cleaned canal.
  • Restoring the tooth with a crown or filling for protection and to restore full function.

Recovery and Aftercare Following Root Canal Therapy

After a root canal:

  • You may experience some sensitivity or discomfort, which usually subsides with over-the-counter pain relievers.
  • It's important to avoid chewing on the treated tooth until it's fully restored.
  • Good oral hygiene practices and regular dental visits are essential for the longevity of the treated tooth.
