Root canal treatment

Endodontics is a dental specialty that aims to treat pathologies of the internal part the tooth, the dental pulp and root canal. The dental pulp is the living part of the tooth that contains nerves and blood vessels. The root canal is the canal that runs through the tooth and contains the pulp.

One of the most common causes of tooth devitalization is tooth decay.

If the decay is not treated in time, it can reach the pulp and cause an infection that can lead to an abscess and the need for a root canal treatment. Other causes of devitalization can be a fracture of the tooth, displacement of the tooth as a result of trauma, or infection of the gum or alveolar bone.

The step-by-step process of root canal treatment

Root canal treatment involves removing the infected or devitalized pulp and filling the root canal to prevent re-infection. It is generally carried out in several appointments:

  • Anesthesia: Before starting the treatment, the dentist will anesthetize the tooth to make the procedure painless for the patient.
  • Access to the root canal: the dentist will make a small access cavity in the tooth to access the root canal.
  • Root canal cleaning: He will use special instruments to remove the infected pulp and clean the root canal with a disinfectant solution.
  • Root canal filling: Once the root canal is cleaned, it will be filled with a special material called Gutta-percha to prevent re-infection.
  • Tooth restoration: finally, the dentist will perform a final restoration of the tooth.

Follow-up after treatment.

Follow-up after root canal treatment consists of regular check-ups with the dentist to ensure that the root of the treated tooth is healthy and that the abscess or infection that required the treatment has been completely eliminated. Follow-up may also include X-rays to check the condition of the root and surrounding bone.

It is also recommended to make regular appointments with the dentist for routine checkups and professional cleanings, which can help to prevent future dental problems.
