Root Canal Therapy is necessary to prevent the formation of tooth abscesses. When a patient have a tooth abscess, will may experience some infected tooth symptoms as pus-filled pocket in the tooth that causes swelling and inflammation.
A Root Canal Treatment is used in cases of severe tooth decay to repair and save a tooth.
Normally, people think that Root canal removal procedures could be painful. But actually, the procedure itself is no more painful than having a filling placed.
When a patient needs a Root Canal Treatment, the period leading up to seeking dental care is truly painful, not the root canal procedure itself and also if the patient needs an emergency root canal procedure, the best thing to do is to consult with a specialist.
A root canal procedure is performed when the nerve of the tooth becomes infected or the pulp becomes damaged, the decay has spread and started to infect the tooth’s nerves and pulp tissues. During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp are removed, and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed.
We highly recommend having a root canal done by a specialist. A general dentist can take up to three visits doing this procedure. Our specialist, Dr. Shahbod Rassoulian has more than 16 years of experience as an endodontist. Dr. Rassoulian will spend no more than 45 minutes to complete the most complicated root canal.
Remember that all dental procedures will last as long as the patient have good oral health habits,some of them are concern about root canal failure within years but the truth is everything will depend on the good care after the procedure.
