ROOT CANAL TREATMENT

We offer root canal therapy in Orlando

Experiencing intense pain in your tooth? This might call for root canal therapy. Normally, tooth pain indicates infection at the pulp of your tooth. It’s best to repair and save this tooth, by setting an appointment at Dentistry of Orlando so we can perform root canal treatment.

The procedure involves removing the nerves and pulp of the tooth, then cleaning the infected area. Without this treatment, the infection may build up at the root tip and may spread to the surrounding area. This results in swelling which may lead to the tooth needing to be removed.

Our dentists are skilled and experienced in handling emergency pain control. We make sure that the procedure is painless so vou don’t have to worrv about the root canal therapy process.

TREATING ROOT CANAL INFECTION

We stop the pain and save the tooth

Don’t endure another night in pain. If you’re experiencing prolonged toothaches, sensitive pain, and extreme tooth decay, it’s time to see your dentist. At Dentistry of Orlando, we conduct dental examinations and x-ray to see if you have root canal infection which needs urgent treatment. 

We commonly perform root canal on a front tooth and root canal with crown. Upon careful evaluation, we recommend root canal, or endodontic therapy for the following benefits:

Prevents tooth loss

Some dentists recommend tooth extraction right away, but not us. We offer root canal treatment as a permanent solution in preserving the natural arrangement of your teeth.

Prevents Infection of Other Teeth

By treating the root canal infection, we stop the spread of bacteria to its adjacent teeth. Otherwise, pulp infection will accumulate and affect neighboring teeth, causing tooth decay.

Improves teeth aesthetics

The root canal procedure doesn’t stop at removal of infected culp. It is followed by filling up the area with a polymer material or adding crowns to restore teeth visual appeal.

Prevents Jawbone Degeneration

Unlike tooth extraction, a root canal keeps your teeth intact. With missing teeth, jawbone degeneration progresses faster due to exposure to bacteria and other elements.

Boosts Overall Health

Root canal treatments preserve teeth and therefore help maintain good oral health. It also prevents heart disease, diabetes, respiratory infections, and gastrointestinal infections.

Painless Procedure

Root canal therapy is a virtually painless procedure and is often comfortable. We use advanced equipment in cleaning the infected pulp and keep the entire process safe.

HOW IT’S DONE

What does the root canal procedure involve?

Preparation & cleaning

The dentist starts by numbing the area. Once numbed, he then places a dental dam in the mouth to isolate the tooth for treatment. Next, he drills through the tooth to access the root canals and pulp chamber. The process uses antibacterial and antiseptic solution to eliminates bacteria and infection.

Shaping & filling

The next step is to shape the canal so your dentist can fill it up with gutta-percha. This material is placed inside the canal and cured to fit snug against the wall. He further adds an adhesive cement to seal the canals and access holes to keep the bacteria from entering the canal.

Healing & adding crown

Once the procedure is done, the patient is sent home with post-care instructions as well as a prescription for antibiotics and painkillers. If you choose to have a crown, you will need to come back for a second appointment to have it placed around the treated tooth.
