Root canal therapy is designed to save and restore teeth that are infected or severely damaged. It involves the removal of infected pulp tissue, then a thorough cleaning and sealing of the tooth to prevent further infection. It is a common, non-invasive endodontic treatment offered at most dental offices, including ours.

When Is Root Canal Therapy Necessary?

  • Severe Toothache: Persistent, intense toothache, often worsened by chewing or applying pressure.
  • Tooth Sensitivity: Increased sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures.
  • Swollen Gums: Swelling, tenderness or a pimple-like bump on the gums near the affected tooth.
  • Darkened Tooth: Discoloration or darkening of the tooth.

The Root Canal Therapy Process:

  • Diagnostic Evaluation: Dr. Jai Kolliboyana and Dr. Juhi Hirpara check your oral health, often using X-rays, to determine the extent of the infection.
  • Local Anesthesia: Local anesthesia is administered to numb the treatment area, ensuring a pain-free procedure.
  • Pulp Removal: The infected or damaged pulp tissue is carefully removed from the tooth’s interior.
  • Cleaning and Shaping: The tooth’s interior is cleaned, disinfected and shaped to receive a filling.
  • Filling and Sealing: The cleaned space is filled with a biocompatible material and sealed to prevent reinfection.
  • Restoration: A crown or other restoration may be placed to strengthen the tooth’s structure.

Benefits of Root Canal Therapy:

  • Pain Relief: Provides relief from severe toothache and discomfort.
  • Tooth Preservation: Saves a tooth that would otherwise need to be extracted.
  • Prevents Infection Spread: Halts the spread of infection to neighboring teeth and gums.
