Non Surgical Root Canal
What Is A Root Canal?
Root canal procedure is one of the most regular dental care procedures, with about 14 million performed every year. This simple surgery can help you retain your natural teeth instead of having to use dental bridges or dental implants.
At the center of your tooth lies the dental pulp. Pulp is a collection of blood vessels that assist in the development of the surrounding tooth. Infection of the pulp can occur as a result of severe decay, tooth injury, chips, and cracks, or a variety of dental surgeries. Inflammation or noticeable damage to the tooth, discomfort in the gums and teeth, and temperature sensitivity are all warning signs of a bacterial infection.

If you suffer from any of the symptoms and signs listed above, our dentists will suggest a non-surgical procedure to remove the infected pulp. The damaged pulp is removed, and the root canal is disinfected and sealed properly and carefully. During a root canal procedure, patients are usually sedated. This is why root canal treatments are usually finished in one or more visits depending on the oral health requirement. This type of treatment has a success rate of approximately 90%. Our dentists will inform you if any problem crops up during or after the procedure and if the tooth a be cured by any sort of endodontic treatment. We will also let you know if the chances of a successful recovery are low.

You should contact their office for a follow-up restoration within a few weeks of your root canal treatment with us. The type of restoration needed to save your tooth will be determined by your restorative dentist. Endodontic patients who undergo standard endodontic therapy or microsurgery are unlikely to experience any issues. However, if a problem arises, we will always be available to help you.

The cost of this treatment varies depending on factors such as the extent of damage to the impacted tooth and the type of tooth that has been affected. Endodontic procedures are usually less expensive when compared to tooth extractions and replacement procedures with an artificial tooth.
