Endodontics

Affordable Root Canal Procedure:

 

Endodontics is a Root canal procedure that will usually require more than one visit to a dentist or an endodontist (root canal specialist). Using special instruments, the dentist or endodontist will remove pulp, nerve tissue, bacteria, and tooth decay (if present).

Once the tooth is thoroughly cleaned, it is sealed by either a permanent filling or a temporary filling, depending on the need of additional appointments.

On the next appointment (usually a week later) the roots and the inner cavity of the tooth will be filled and sealed with medicated dental materials. The tooth will then be sealed with a filling, and then a crown (cap). This will protect the tooth, prevent further breakage, and restore full functionality.

 It is considered normal to experience some pain and discomfort for a short time after the treatment. All pain will subside as the tooth and gums heal. The endodontist should give you some care and instructions regarding how you can maintain health and functionality to your tooth, as well as recommendations on how to care for your tooth during the healing process.

To prevent any future infection and decay, good oral hygiene practices as well as regular dental visits with Optim Dental Care will aid in the overall health of your mouth, and provide greater longevity in the life of your root canal treatment.
