    Root Canal Aftercare

    After eliminating the infection, the root canal is sealed with a sealer paste and gutta-percha, and a temporary filling closes the access hole. Subsequently, a temporary crown ensures protection during jaw healing, while the permanent crown, custom-made for optimal fit and appearance, is affixed in the final visit.

    Technology Behind Root Canals

    Embark on a journey through the intricate science behind root canals, where modern dentistry meets the complexities of tooth anatomy and healing.

    Root Canal Anatomy

    Root canals delve into the innermost layers of a tooth, addressing infections in the pulp, the vital tissue containing nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue.

    Pulp Removal and Cleansing

    The procedure involves the meticulous removal of infected pulp, followed by a thorough cleansing and disinfection of the internal tooth structure.

    Sealing The Canal

    The treated canal is sealed using a specialized sealer paste and gutta-percha, forming a robust barrier against bacterial intrusion.

    Temporary Crown Placement

    While awaiting the permanent crown, a temporary crown is affixed, providing protection and stability during the healing period.

    Permanent Crown Fabrication

    A custom-designed permanent crown is crafted to exact specifications, ensuring a precise fit and mimicking the natural appearance of the restored tooth.

    Crown Cementation

    In the final phase, the permanent crown is expertly cemented into place, completing the root canal process and enhancing both function and aesthetics.

    Root Canal FAQs: Essential Information For Informed Dental Care

    Explore the common questions about root canals, from understanding the procedure to post-treatment care, ensuring you’re well-informed for your dental health journey.

    What is a root canal, and why might I need one?

    A root canal is a dental procedure aimed at saving a severely decayed or infected tooth by removing the infected pulp. It’s recommended when the alternative is tooth extraction.
    Common signs include persistent toothache, sensitivity to hot or cold, swelling, or a pimple on the gums. A dental examination and X-rays are crucial for an accurate diagnosis.
    With modern anesthesia, root canals are typically no more uncomfortable than getting a filling. Patients may experience mild discomfort during the healing process.
    While it varies, most root canals can be completed in one to two appointments, depending on the complexity of the case.
    After removing the infected pulp, the tooth is sealed, and a temporary crown is placed. A follow-up appointment is scheduled to fit the permanent crown after complete healing.

    Can I drive home after a root canal?

    Yes, in most cases, you can drive home after the procedure. However, if sedation is used, you may need someone to drive you.
    Root canals have a high success rate, typically exceeding 95%. Success depends on factors like proper sealing and restoration of the tooth.
    The primary alternative is tooth extraction, but this isn’t always the best option for preserving overall oral health and function.
    It’s advisable to avoid chewing on the treated tooth until the permanent crown is placed. Maintaining good oral hygiene is crucial for recovery.
    Yes, even after a root canal, the treated tooth is susceptible to decay. Regular dental check-ups and proper oral care are essential for preventing further issues.

    I met Dr. Bram for the first time today for a 2nd opinion and consultation (which was free) for an extraction and either an implant or bridge. He is a gentleman, so calming and soft spoken, he thoroughly explained all the procedures, the pros and cons and made me feel very comfortable and took away whatever anxiety I had from the mishandling at my dentist’s office. His office is immaculate and his staff is friendly and competent. I wish I had gone to him years ago!
