Root Canals

Details about our services

Do you have a severe tooth pain that doesn’t allow you to sleep?

If it is an infection, do not ignore it!

How the root may be affected?

Teeth aren’t solid all the way through — they’re made up of layers. The hard, outer surface of a tooth is called enamel. The inner layer is called dentin and is a porous, almost sponge-like tissue. At the center of each tooth is a collection of soft tissue called pulp. The pulp contains the nerves and blood vessels that allow the tooth to grow.

When an infection occurs or if the tooth’s pulp becomes harmed, it can begin to affect the root.

FAQs:

The following are types of pain that often indicate a root canal infection:

  • Severe tooth pain when chewing;
  • Pain that is so strong that you can’t sleep at night;
  • A pain that occurs when you’re putting pressure on the infected tooth;
  • Thermal stimuli pain – for instance, it may happen when you drink cold water right after a hot beverage, or vice versa;
  • A spontaneous pain that is either intermittent or continuous;
  • A lingering toothache;
  • A pulsing toothache.

Root canal treatment is the process of removing infected or injured tissue (pulp) from inside the crown and roots of a tooth. The procedure includes cleaning, canal disinfecting, shaping and after that it is filled and sealed with natural rubber-like material called gutta percha. Temporary or permanent filling must be done to prevent future infection.
