What is a root canal treatment?

root canal treatmentA root canal treatment is necessary when the roots or the inside of a tooth are infected. During the treatment the dentist mills out the infected  root canal and fills out the void in it. After a treatment the tooth isn’t alive anymore. This kind of treatment is the last opportunity to save a tooth so that the natural dental crown can still fulfill its function. In addition, in the case of teeth badly damaged by caries, this treatment can prevent bacteria from reaching the bone tissue.

When is a root canal treatment necessary?

A root canal treatment is necessary when bacteria damage the teeth and penetrate the root canals as a consequence of dental caries.

Which are the root canal symptoms in case of an infection?

One of the root canal symptoms is a rather strong toothache: the patient may feel a strong pounding as well as pressure pain.
It is important to know that although the pain ends and the tooth is not alive any longer, in the case of an infection root canal symptoms can still spread out onto other, still healthy tissues.

How long does a root canal treatment take?

It may last from one to seven dental sessions, depending on how crooked the root canals are.

What is the process of a root canal treatment?

In the framework of this treatment practically everything is removed from the inside of the tooth that might get infected. This means the surrounding tissue, the nerves and the pulp.
Within the framework of this intervention first the tooth is benumbed. Second, the dentist drills out the tooth and completely cleanses it with a dental medical drill. This step requires great care to prevent bacteria from reaching the root canals. As a last step, the inside of the tooth is filled with filling material such as cement, synthetic material or with another type of material.

What advantages and disadvantages does a root canal treatment have?

One definite advantage of this treatment is that the patient does not lose this tooth. Even though the tooth is basically not alive anymore, it has been saved, so that it can fulfill its function of chewing and biting.
Some patients would rather have the tooth extracted instead of the root canal treatment. However, one should take into consideration that the replacement of a tooth takes a lot more time than a simple root canal treatment.
However, this treatment might have possible disadvantages. For example the dental crown could possibly break during drilling. Another risk is that the root canals are not prepared for the filling thoroughly enough. This way bacteria can potentially remain in the root canals. But an experienced dentist will not make these mistakes.
