Millions of root canals procedures are done each year to save and repair damaged and infected teeth. This procedure is relieving pain and establishing tooth health at the appropriate level. It is actually the combination of various procedures. Root canals protect neighbouring teeth from wear and strain. Root canals give one’s teeth natural appearance. After it’s done people can chew efficiently again.
What is root canal?
A root canal is a dental procedure (operation) which saves teeth by surgical removal of contents of its root canal.
X-rays will take place prior to the actual procedure, so the dentist can define the exact spot(s) of decay. During the procedure, local anaesthesia is given. At first – the pulp is removed. Cleaning and disinfection of the area follow. When the roots are open they are filled with an inert material called gutta-percha. After that, they are sealed with cement. Once the procedure is done people experience advantages such as normal biting force and sensation.

As always with dental interventions, there’s a question in the air – does it hurt? It was like that decades ago. However, nowadays root canal treatments generate almost no pain. After all, modern technology along with local anaesthesia is used. Also, endodontists are known as experts in pain management; they can prescribe mild analgesics and painkillers if any need occurs. If by chance, pain persists, one should contact the dentist again. Most such cases can be cured quick and with no additional pain.
