What is exactly a root canal treatment?

Deep caries

Root canal is the last resource to keep a tooth. This procedure has to be performed when the pulp of a teeth has received irreversible damage, usually by a cavity. In order not to lose the tooth and extract it, the damaged pulp is removed; canals and conducts where the pulp used to be are cleaned and filled with biocompatible material.

Do I need root canal?

If you feel pain or inflammation

Root canal is practiced when a non-treated cavity reaches the interior of the tooth, infecting and damaging the pulp. If you have strong pain that you want to avoid and wish to keep your teeth, you must get root canal treatment.

It is essential that you go to your dentist to determine if you present a condition where the pulp cannot be saved, and not a cavity that can be cured in some other way.

  • Does it hurt?

    Some people think root canal is painful, but nowadays the pain is minimum, since this is performed with anesthesia. The affliction of recovery is temporary and is not compared to the pain that you would have to endure if this is not taken care of.

  • For how long will my “new tooth” last?

    If you follow the instructions and give an adequate maintenance to the tooth, it can last a lifetime. Dental crowns are also a good option if you want to reinforce and extend your tooth’s lifespan.

  • Is it true that endodontics cause harm with a toxic substance?

    Root canal causes no harm if performed correctly. The filling is not made with toxic chemicals, but with natural and sterile resin obtained from the gutapercha tree, closely related to the chicle tree. If there’s something that can compromise your health, that is keeping an infected tooth.
