Root Canal Therapy Kitchener - Endodontic Treatment Kitchener

What is Root Canal Procedure?

Root canal treatment is an endodontic procedure that is carried out to cure infected and inflamed tooth pulp. The infection can be caused by a variety of factors such as deep decay, faulty crowns, broken or damaged tooth, repeated oral procedures, and more. Such inflammation and infection are characterized by severe pain and formation of abscess in tooth. root canal treatment in kitchener Root canal therapy in Kitchener involves careful cleaning of the tooth, disinfection of the wound and complete removal of the pulp. The hollow is then refilled with gutta-percha sealant. After natural healing comes to an end, another clinical session might be carried out to fill the tooth for protection.

What happens in Root Canal Therapy Treatment?

Your root canal dentist in Kitchener will test the tooth in various ways to see how bad the damage is and, if necessary, will gain access through the crown to take out the diseased pulp. The root will then be permanently filled with special material so that the tooth can be restored. During endodontic treatment, the nerve, blood and nutrient supply to the tooth is removed. This will cause the tooth to become brittle and prone to fracturing which could result in the need to extract the tooth. A full coverage crown is recommended to prevent this from happening.

Nervous about Root Canal Treatment? Is Root Canal Painful?

This is a very common question. Most patients feel little or no pain while the root canal procedure is being performed. That is because the tooth and surrounding area is numbed to prevent pain and discomfort. For the first few days after the root canal treatment, some pain and sensitivity is expected. Your dentist will usually recommend some painkillers and if you take care of your mouth properly after the procedure, it will heal fast.

5 Common Symptoms you need Root Canal Therapy

  • consistent pain in tooth and gums
  • abscess or pimples on gums, or swollen gums
  • large visible cavity and decaying tooth
  • foul odour or taste near the affected area even after brushing teeth
  • extreme sensitivity to hot, cold and pressure
The most common symptom indicating that you need root canal is pain. However some patients do not have these symptoms at all, so a root canal can be detected during your regular dental checkups.

Having a root canal done on a tooth is the treatment of choice to save a tooth that otherwise would die and have to be removed. Many patients believe that removing a tooth that has problems is the solution, but what is not realized is that extracting (pulling) a tooth will ultimately be more costly and cause significant problems for adjacent teeth.
Root canal treatment is highly successful and usually lasts a lifetime, although on occasion, a tooth will have to be retreated due to new infections.
