Root Canal Treatment
Dentist in El Cajon, CA
Why do most people need a root canal?
Do you suffer from any of the following problems with your teeth? Toothaches, gum pain, and a variety of other issues like having a sharp pain when chewing or biting?
If you have any of these symptoms, you may need root canal therapy, and root canals are one of the most effective ways to save your teeth that are in any way decayed, infected, or traumatized. Root canal treatment, also called endodontic treatment, is a common dental procedure that saves severely damaged teeth. If the tooth needs to be removed, it is performed to remove and save the tooth.
At Singing Hills Dentistry in El Cajon – Dr Dalia Jamma regularly performs root canal endodontic treatment in order to remove infections and save patients’ teeth. We can complete the procedure and work to keep patients comfortable. Root canals are a common procedure.
How does the treatment work?
A root canal restores the tooth to its normal function and makes dental implants and false teeth unnecessary. In a root canal, the infected pulp is removed from the teeth, and the gums removed so that they can continue to work normally without causing pain. Instead of removing the entire tooth, endodontists recommend removing infected pulp only from the teeth with a root canal. A simple root canal can take 30-60 minutes, with each tooth having only one canal.
This allows your dentist to choose the most appropriate treatment option that will allow the preservation and longevity of your tooth and surrounding tissue. After the removal of the tooth, the irreversibly inflamed pulp and the surrounding periapical tissue and gums are embedded for removal or removal from the pulp.
For this reason, it is often simply called root canal treatment and consists of removing the infected pulp from the inside of the tooth and cleaning the root canals and pulp to prevent the infection from spreading and losing teeth. The crown is then attached to protect and strengthen the teeth and restore them so that you have a fully functioning tooth.
The usual root canal treatment is performed directly at the dentist and can take one to three visits, depending on the severity of the infection. Root canal therapy is required when tooth decay or infection affects the nerves in the teeth. As soon as the infected pulp is removed from the canal, the canals are cleaned, shaped, and filled with synthetic fillings.
Many patients believe that removing a tooth that has a problem is the solution, but what is not recognized is that pulling the tooth itself will ultimately become more expensive. Root canals for teeth are a great way to save teeth that would otherwise die or need to be removed.
