A root canal is a dental treatment used to repair and save teeth where the pulp of the teeth gets badly decayed or are infected due to injury. We offer near painless treatment.
Root Canal can be described as a treatment that is used for saving or repairing an infected or badly damaged tooth rather than moving it. Root canal treatments were very painful until a few decades ago. However, that’s not the case anymore, as there will be very little pain when you undergo root canal treatment in Abu Dhabi.
In fact, undergoing root canal treatment will be less painful when compared to living with an infected or decayed tooth. The alternatives to root canal treatment include removing the decayed or infected tooth and replacing it with a removable partial denture, bridge, or dental implant.
Root canal treatments are usually performed by general dentists or endodontists. It is important to note that the process of the root canal will take either 1 or 2 visits to a dentist’s clinic. However, you will also need to schedule additional visits to the clinic because some teeth can be hard to treat.
The dentist will thoroughly assess dental X-rays to identify the extent of damage that has occurred to your teeth. A local anesthetic might also be needed to control the extent of pain, which can become a lot more severe if and when the tooth is abscessed.
After that, a rubber-like sheet called a dental dam will be placed inside your teeth to keep them clean and free of saliva. The decay will be removed later along with creating an opening through the tooth’s crown for gaining access to the pulp chamber. The diseased or infected pulp is then removed using dental instruments.
As mentioned earlier, a root canal is a type of dental procedure, which cleans out the decay in the root and pulp of your tooth. However, you might not be able to tell if you need a root canal treatment or not. This is why we have listed some signs that indicate you need a root canal or not.
One of the common signs, which indicate you must undergo a root canal treatment is persistent tooth pain. If the pain in your tooth is bothering you or it arrives at irregular intervals, then you must schedule a visit to our dental clinic in Abu Dhabi.
If your tooth hurts when you are drinking a warm cup of coffee or when eating cold ice cream, then it is best to get in touch with a dentist as soon as possible. The sensitivity in your tooth, which feels like a sharp pain or dull ache, can be avoided through a root canal treatment.
The discoloration of your tooth might be due to an infection in the tooth’s pulp. Tooth discoloration can result in other issues, which is why it is best to contact a dentist and see if you need root canal treatment or not.
