What is a Root canal Treatment and Why do we need it?
Root canal treatment, also called endodontic therapy, is a procedure where the damaged or infected tooth’s pulp (which runs through the center of each of your teeth and contains nerves and blood vessels) is removed and a 'root filling is placed in the tooth.' Root canal treatment is a skilled and time-consuming procedure and some courses of treatment will involve two or more visits. Some of the signs that you may need a root canal treatment are a painful throbbing ache and uncomfortable sensation to hot, cold or pressure on the tooth. There may be swelling of your gums, discolouration of the tooth or a persistent pimple on the gums. Commonly, the toothache is so severe that it interrupts sleep and is not well controlled with pain medication only.

How is root canal therapy done?
The team at Dental HQ performs root canal therapy under Local Anaesthetic as it is much more comfortable.
All visits are carried out under sterile conditions, and an isolation mask (rubber dam) is placed on the tooth to prevent bacteria from re-entering the pulp space.
Step 1: An access is made into the nerve to remove dead pulp tissue and bacteria. Medication is placed to relieve symptoms and disinfect nerve. A temporary filling is placed.
Step 2: Instruments are used to ensure the full length of the pulp and infection is removed.
Step 3: The root canal system is filled with a permanent filling and sealed. X-rays are taken to confirm this. Afterwards, a permanent filling is placed in preparation for a crown.

What happens following root canal therapy?
Front teeth: Following root canal therapy front teeth can discolour. This occurs as there is no longer a blood or nerve supply in the tooth. To treat this, a bleaching process of the tooth is needed and is done over 2-3 visits depending on the level of tooth discolouration.
Back teeth: Molars and premolars are subjected to a lot of force during chewing and as a general rule they need a porcelain crown following root canal therapy. These teeth become very brittle after losing their nerve and blood supply and have a high risk of fracturing without the protection of the crown.
