Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need a root canal dentist to perform the treatment on me?
While endodontics is a specialty area in dentistry, all dentists at Battery Hill Dental are trained and certified to perform root canal procedures. In complex cases, we will refer you to the endodontist for treatment.
What Happens in a Root Canal procedure?
This involves multiple visits to the dentist to complete the treatment. Here’s how it happens:
(1) Your dentist will make an opening from the top of your tooth to the nerve chamber to get to the diseased pulp. All while the tooth is numb so there is no pain.
(2) The diseased nerve, as well as any other damaged tissue, is then taken out
(3) The root canals is irrigated and medicated
(4) A temporary filling is placed on the opening of the tooth to protect it until the next procedure
(5) After a couple of weeks, the temporary filling is removed and the root canal is once again cleaned and filled with a 'root filling' that seals it all up.
(6) Afterward, it is normally recommended to place a permanent crown on your tooth
Is root canal treatment painful?
Thanks to advances in modern dentistry, root canal therapy is as simple as having a routine filling. You can expect the experience to be comfortable. It just take a little longer then a normal filling appointment.
What are the risks involved in having a root canal procedure?
A root canal, like any medical or dental procedure, can still have some risks such as infection. There may also be rare complications wherein your tooth may need additional treatment or referral to a specialist. We will always discuss risks before you decide if you want to undertake a root canal.
