Root canal treatment becomes necessary when the soft tissue inside the tooth, known as the pulp, becomes infected or inflamed. This can occur due to deep decay, repeated dental procedures on the same tooth, or traumatic injuries. If left untreated, the infection can spread, leading to abscess formation and potential tooth loss. At Pearl Dentistry, our specialist endodontist is dedicated to providing expert root canal treatment. Our specialist utilizes advanced techniques and state-of-the-art equipment to thoroughly remove the infected pulp, clean the root canal system, and seal the tooth to prevent further infection. With the skill and precision of our specialist, you can trust us to perform root canal treatment with the utmost care and deliver optimal results for your oral health and comfort.
Diagnosis and Examination: We begin by conducting a Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) scan. This advanced technology provides a detailed 3D image of your teeth, jaw, and surrounding structures, allowing us to accurately assess the condition of your tooth and plan the root canal procedure.
Anesthesia: Local anesthesia will be administered to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. Sedation options may also be available if needed.
Access and Removal: An access hole will be created in the tooth to reach the infected pulp. The diseased pulp will be carefully removed, and the root canal system will be thoroughly cleaned and shaped.
Disinfection and Filling: The cleaned root canal will be disinfected to eliminate bacteria. It will then be filled with a biocompatible material called gutta-percha to seal the canal and prevent reinfection.
Restoration: After the root canal, the tooth may require a dental crown or filling to restore its strength, function, and appearance. Our dental professionals will discuss the appropriate restoration option for your tooth.
