What is a Root Canal?

A root canal is the natural cavity at a tooth's core. This oral cavity contains the pulp chamber, a soft area of nerves that, if infected, can lead to adverse conditions such as face and neck swelling and bone loss near your tooth's roots.

When Do You Need Root Canal Treatment?

If you have one or more of the following symptoms, you may need a root canal:

  • Severe pain or discomfort while eating
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures
  • Swollen gums or tooth discoloration
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • A reoccurring pimple on the gums

How is Root Canal Treatment Done?

Most root canals take about 90 minutes to perform with some recuperation time afterward, but this can vary depending on various factors.

Step 1. The dentist will examine the tooth in question and administer a local anesthetic if necessary.
Step 2. The dentist makes an opening in the crown of the tooth and cleans the infected pulp chamber and root canal before shaping the space for filling.
Step 3. The root canals are filled to ensure they remain fully sealed and to prevent further risk of infection. In most cases, a temporary filling is placed to plug any gaps.
Step 4. Finally, the crown or another restorative capsule is placed on the tooth to return it to its full function.
