A root canal, also known as endodontic therapy, is a dental procedure designed to remove infected or damaged tissue from inside the tooth, specifically from the pulp chamber and root canals. This treatment is necessary when the pulp, which contains nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue, becomes inflamed or infected due to deep decay, trauma, or other factors.

Frequently Asked Questions

Everything you need to know!
Why is a root canal necessary?
Root canal therapy is necessary to alleviate pain, save a severely damaged or infected tooth, and prevent the spread of infection to surrounding teeth and tissues. Without treatment, dental infections can lead to abscesses, bone loss, and tooth loss.
How do I know if I need a root canal?
Common signs that may indicate the need for a root canal include severe tooth pain, prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures, swelling or tenderness in the gums, discoloration of the tooth, and the presence of a pimple-like bump on the gums. If you experience any of these symptoms, it is essential to seek prompt evaluation by a dentist.
How long does a root canal take?
The duration of a root canal procedure depends on various factors, including the location and complexity of the infection, the number of root canals involved, and the patient's individual anatomy. In most cases, root canal therapy can be completed in one to two appointments, with each appointment lasting approximately 60 to 90 minutes.
Is a root canal painful?
Contrary to popular belief, root canal therapy is not typically painful. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia to numb the affected tooth and surrounding tissues, ensuring that you remain comfortable throughout the treatment. In fact, root canal therapy is often sought to alleviate severe tooth pain caused by dental infections.
Can a tooth with a root canal treatment function normally?
Yes, a tooth that has undergone root canal therapy can function normally and can remain in the mouth for many years with proper care. After the infected tissue is removed, the tooth is strengthened and protected with a dental crown or filling to restore its function and appearance.
How long do the results of a root canal last?
With proper care and maintenance, the results of a root canal can last a lifetime. It is essential to practice good oral hygiene habits, including brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and visiting your dentist regularly for check-ups and cleanings, to ensure the long-term success of root canal-treated teeth.
