Root Canal

We provide comprehensive medical and surgical services
Welcome

A root canal is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected. During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed. Without treatment, the tissue surrounding the tooth will become infected and abscesses may form.

A tooth's nerve is not vitally important to a tooth's health and function after the tooth has emerged through the gums. Its only function is sensory -- to provide the sensation of hot or cold. The presence or absence of a nerve will not affect the day-to-day functioning of the tooth.

Advantages

Root Canal Treatment can help patients with the following advantages:
• The ego of the patient is reassured because it holds the idea of carrying a tooth
• The body carries a corpse of a tooth and is thus inviting degenerative and putrefying bacteria into itself.
• The patient may continue with a similar diet, as the funcionality of the tooth may remain for some time

Importanr Information

Your treated and restored tooth/teeth can last a lifetime with proper care. Because tooth decay can still occur in treated teeth, good oral hygiene and regular dental exams are necessary to prevent further problems.

To determine the success or failure of root canal treatment, the most relied-upon method is to compare new X-rays with those taken prior to treatment. This comparison will show whether bone continues to be lost or is being regenerated.
