What Is a Root Canal?
At the center of your tooth is the pulp, which is a complex set of nerves and blood supply. This is connected to your body´s blood supply via the tooth roots. When a tooth has decayed and bacteria reaches the pulp, the tooth will require a root canal. A root canal is a filling that extends to the roots of your teeth. During your root canal at Biltmore Dental Center, we will clean out all the bacteria and infection, and place a seal in the root of your tooth. This prevents bacteria from spreading and prevents any future problems, allowing you to keep the tooth.
Why Do I Need a Root Canal?
There are a few different reasons you might find yourself in need of a root canal. The most common reason tends to be pain caused by an infection or decay. Other patients may be advised to get a root canal if your dentist notices untreated cavities. Other reasons for a root canal may include injury to your tooth causing nerve damage, which will require a root canal to save the tooth. Ultimately, getting a root canal will save your tooth and prevent health complications in the future.
How Does the Root Canal Procedure Work?
During a root canal, a hole is made in the tooth so we can reach the infected area and remove it. We then fill the hole with a permanent filling material called gutta-percha, and a crown is placed over the top of the tooth. At Biltmore Dental Center, with our state-of-the-art CEREC machine, we can do a root canal and crown all in one visit with minimal discomfort!
The Advantages of Root Canal Therapy
A root canal can prevent future complications due to infection. It also prevents tooth loss, prevents infection from traveling to other teeth or other parts of your body, and prevents jawbone degeneration. A timely root canal will boost oral and overall health.
How Long Will Treatment Take?
On average, a root canal on a single tooth takes 30-60 minutes. Having multiple root canals done at the same time may take longer. Thanks to anesthetic and advanced instruments, today you can watch a movie or even fall asleep while getting a root canal. With our compassionate care at Biltmore Dental Center, you will have minimal discomfort during and after the procedure.
