Endodontics – Pain Relief Through Affordable Dental Care

dca-blog_root-canal-3d-model

Root canal treatment is an affordable dental care option that can end your toothache pain and allow you to avoid extraction. Endodontics is a dental specialty that deals with the tooth’s pulp, which is found in the middle of the tooth and the canals inside the tooth’s root. Pulp contains nerve tissues, connective tissues, and blood vessels. If your tooth is fully mature, a dentist can remove diseased pulp without destroying your tooth. In America, root canal treatments save approximately 24 million teeth every year.

Why Would I Need a Root Canal Treatment? 



Root canals become necessary when a tooth’s pulp is badly damaged; this damage may be from infection arising from untreated cavities or an injury to the pulp caused by trauma, fracture or previous restorations. Neglecting to have a root canal treatment may eventually require extraction of the tooth. Once a root canal is performed and a crown placed, the tooth will probably remain stable throughout the rest of your life.

How Long Does Treatment Take? 



A root canal treatment can often be completed in one visit, but it depends on the situation. Complicated cases and the presence of infection may require more work and time. Once the tooth roots are treated, a separate appointment to place the crown is usually required.

What Happens During a Root Canal Treatment? 



First, you will receive a local anesthetic injection. You may also receive sedation to help you relax. Your dentist or endodontist will make a hole in your tooth to access and remove the diseased pulp. He or she will then measure the tooth’s root canals with the help of an x-ray or a device called an apex locator. Next, your dentist will remove all tissues from inside the root canals, disinfect the canals with antiseptic, and fill them with a flexible material. After the procedure, your tooth may be sensitive for a few days, but once you’re healed, you will no longer suffer pain in the tooth.

Root Canal Pain: Fact vs. Fiction



Many people think that root canals are painful, but root canal pain is actually rare. After receiving an anesthetic, you should feel no pain at all during treatment. With timely, affordable dental care from a skilled endodontist or dentist, you can enjoy a pain-free mouth again. Finding specialists in endodontics in Orlando is easy; ask your dentist for a referral, or conduct an online search.
