Root canal treatment, otherwise known as endodontics, is a painless procedure that can be completed in a single visit. Scarborough’s Dr. Salim Kapadia Dental Centre is well-known for offering reliable single-visit root canal treatment in a painless and stress-free environment.
The inner part of the tooth between the pulp and the tooth roots is the “Root Canal.” It comprises blood vessels, nerves, and other delicate tissues. For a variety of reasons, including tooth decay or a cavity, the pulp can become exposed and infected. Such issues will cause excruciating pain, requiring root canal surgery to prevent it from worsening. During an endodontics treatment, the pulp and the blood vessels and nerve tissues are extracted from the tooth. The pulp chamber is then sealed to prevent bacteria from entering.
Our dentist will take an x-ray of the tooth and apply anesthetics to the tooth and surrounding gum during the first procedure. Once that area of your mouth has become numb, our dentist will place a small protective sheet known as a “dental dam,” which helps keep the tooth clean and prevents saliva from entering during the treatment. Following that, our dentist will make an opening on the tooth’s crown and use cutting-edge technology to clean the pulp from the pulp chamber and root canals. After cleaning and shaping the root canal chambers, our dentist will fill them with biocompatible material. Additional steps are taken to ensure that the root canals are sealed. Finally, a permanent crown will be placed to restore the bite and functionality of your mouth.
