When are root canals necessary?
A root canal is a relatively simple procedure, typically taking around ninety minutes. It is necessary when a patient’s dental pulp has become inflamed or infected. This can cause painful symptoms to the mouth, such as gum inflammation and extreme sensitivity to hot and cold foods or liquids.
A root canal begins with an x-ray to assess the extent of the decay on the tooth’s interior. Often the affected tooth will require nerve extraction, which allows for our endodontist to remove the tooth’s nerve, stopping the pain, without having to remove the tooth itself. The next steps in the procedure are cleaning the inside of the tooth, sealing it, and placing a crown on the tooth.
Root canals and similar procedures have long been synonymous with pain, but Hamilton Dental’s endodontic specialist maximizes the comfort of his patients through the most modern and effective pain-management medications and techniques.
Our doctor will advise you on each step of the process, so you know exactly what’s going on. You’ll receive a numbing treatment, so you can expect a pain-free procedure!
