When outspoken, the phrase root canal treatment is known to cause distorted faces and phantom pains in the teeth. The many pains, which previously have been connected with root canal treatments, have eventually been eliminated to an absolute minimum. At Dentin Clinic we have dentists, who have great expertise in root canal treatments, and thus we can gladly offer you a painless root canal treatment.
Root canal treatment
Basically it is necessary with a root canal treatment, if you have a tooth, where the nerve is damaged, inflamed or dead. The nerve itself is located deep within the root canal in the middle of the tooth root. If bacteria is allowed to enter too far, it can cause inflammation in the nerve damaging or destroying it completely. Pains from sensitive tooth pendants or cracked teeth can also cause the necessity of a root canal treatment. An unfortunate stroke on a tooth, which causes damage to the blood supply to the nerve of the tooth, eventually killing the nerve, can also be a reason for a root canal treatment.
When performing a root canal treatment, we cleanse all the infected and inflamed nerve tissue from the specific crown and root canals of the tooth. When both crown and root canal are desinficated and thoroughly cleansed, we fill the root canal with a special material named ‘guttaperka’, which is a rubber-like substance and thus can shaped itself after the root canals. This material prevent future bacteria in reinfection the root canals by forming a mechanical barrier against the bacteria. The bacteria will no longer have the possibility of infecting the bone beneath, and the bone can heal. When the root canal treatment is done, the tooth is ready to be filled with a plastic filling to replace the removed substance of the tooth. In some circumstances there will be so little left of the tooth, that it can be necessary to mount a pin in the root canals to attach the plastic filling firmly.
After a root canal treatment your tooth will be more fragile than before. A root canal treated tooth will become more glass-like and are bound to crack more easily. This is due to several reasons. A root canal treated tooth is more porous than a real tooth, since you with a root canal treatment actually remove the blood supply to the tooth. By a root canal treatment you will moreover be forced to remove healthy tooth substance to be able to access the infected nerve tissue. And as a result you will have significantly less tooth substance left after a root canal treatment causing the tooth to problems resisting the powerful chewing, which in particular the molars are exposed to everyday. We basically recommend, that your treated tooth — especially if it is a molar –has a dental crown attached after a root canal treatment. With a dental crown the tooth will regain the necessary strength to resist the load, which molars are exposed to on a daily basis.
