What’s the Route of a Root Canal Procedure?

dca-blog_root-canal-3d-model

While a root canal can be performed for many different reasons, the treatment follows the same steps. Discover every part involved in this everyday procedure. Most root canals can be performed by any affordable dentist, but if your problem is severe, you may be referred to a specialist in endodontics in Orlando. Be sure to ignore the myth about a root canal causing pain. The only root canal pain you’ll experience is the ache while you wait for treatment. But during and after the root canal, pain is not an issue.

Testing Before Treatment – To see if your problem requires a root canal, you’ll need a dental evaluation by an affordable dentist or a specialist in endodontics in Orlando. Once you’re in the office, x-rays will be taken and you may be given a pulp test to check the tooth’s health. These tests should tell if a root canal is right for you. If a root canal can relieve your pain, you’ll be scheduled for the procedure in either one or two appointments.

Preparing for the Procedure – For maximum comfort throughout the root canal procedure, you’ll be given a local anesthesia to numb the tooth being treated. Then, a rubber dam gets placed on the tooth to keep the area clean during treatment.

Performing the Procedure ­– Now you’re ready for your root canal. Sit back, relax, and expect this course of care:

  • An opening is made in the tooth to allow the damaged pulp to be removed from the inner canals.
  • The canals are cleaned thoroughly with a disinfectant solution.
  • A series of files are used to shape the canals to remove hidden bacteria and ensure enough room for the root canal filling.
  • X-rays are taken throughout the procedure to monitor progress and accuracy.
  • The root canal is either filled immediately with a rubber-like substance, or treated with an antibiotic and filled a week later.
  • The tooth is sealed and restored with a crown.

When the root canal is complete, you can return to your normal activities the next day.
