Why root canals are important
Root canal treatments are recommended for any tooth that’s exhibiting moderate to severe pain or swelling. This holds true regardless of how old it is, there are certain cases in which it’s advisable to treat a tooth as soon as possible instead of delaying care.
Mouth health is more important than most people realize. While it’s important to brush and floss your teeth every day, most people don’t realize that routine dental checkups can also be a crucial part of maintaining good oral health. In order for us to know what condition your mouth is in, we have to examine each tooth individually as well as the entire mouth itself.
But if there happens to be something going on with a tooth or teeth a root canal can be your best bet to get everything back into working order.
What to expect during a root canal procedure
The purpose of a root canal is to clean, sanitize and seal the inside of the tooth so it can survive for another day. This might sound like a pretty heavy job but in reality, it’s not much different from what we do every day when we brush and floss our teeth.
For the root canal procedure itself, we first start with numbing you up so there’s no pain during the procedure. After numbing, we will open up your tooth or teeth at your gum line via a curved drill that enters through the top of the tooth. This is to create access into the root canal space.
Once your East Cobb Root Canal doctor breaks through at the gum line, they will remove any infected or dead tissues so they can get to the root of your decay. Once this is done, we will fill up all these spaces with a protective sealant that will keep out bacteria and allow you to heal properly.
After the procedure, if you need antibiotics or painkillers, your doctor can prescribe these for you.
How long does it take for the tooth to heal after a root canal procedure?
The healing time for a root canal can vary depending on the level of the procedure, the amount of infection, and generally how fast your body naturally heals. But the time frame for healing after this procedure can be from 2 weeks to 4 months.
During this time, the dentist will make sure your infection clears up and you are healing properly with regular checkups. In order to prevent any further damage to the tooth during the root canal procedure, a temporary filling may be placed on the tooth until it can heal completely.
