When teeth are severely damaged or diseased, root canal treatments can often save them. The endodontic procedure is employed when a tooth’s pulp becomes severely infected or inflamed. Causes of diseased pulp include deep cavities, repeated dental work, and injuries like chips and cracks. If diseased teeth aren’t treated, severe pain or abscesses may result.
Endodontic Treatment Explained Step-by-Step

  1. Before your endodontist begins the treatment, he or she will administer a local anesthetic. You will not feel any pain during the procedure.
  2. The endodontist will make an opening in the crown of your tooth. Small instruments will be used to remove all of the pulp from the pulp chamber and root canals.
  3. After the interior of your tooth is clean and shaped, it will be filled with a rubbery material called gutta-percha. The newly-filled root canals will be sealed. If necessary, a post can be placed inside your tooth to stabilize it.
  4. Your endodontist will place a temporary filling; this will be replaced with a permanent filling before the restoration is complete.
  5. Finally, your regular dentist will place a crown on top of the treated tooth and cement it into place.

Can Every Tooth be Treated Endodontically?

Root canal treatment is appropriate for most teeth. In some teeth, the root canals are not accessible, or they are severely fractured; these teeth cannot be saved. If your tooth doesn’t have adequate bone structure to support it, endodontic treatment may not be possible.

After Root Canal Procedure, will the Tooth need Extra Treatment or Special Care?

After it is fully restored with a crown, an endodontically treated tooth needs no special care other than good oral hygiene. Additional treatment may be required if the tooth becomes painful months or years later due to trauma or new infection. Re-treatment can save the tooth.

What Does a Root Canal Procedure Cost?
The complexity of the problem will affect the cost of your procedure. Treating molars usually costs more. Root canals are a more affordable dental care option than tooth extraction when you factor in the cost of replacing a tooth or teeth with dental implants or bridges.
