What that means for you is that we will walk you through every step of the process, keep you informed, and make sure you are comfortable and relaxed during your time in our chair.
We Can Save Your Tooth
The root canals of each tooth house nerve tissue and dental pulp, which contain blood vessels that provide nourishment. When this tissue becomes infected, a tooth may be in danger of dying. Without a root canal, patients may experience severe swelling, bone loss, inflammation, toothache, darkening of the tooth, gum soreness, and drainage problems.
A root canal procedure is usually recommended after other dental treatment options have been considered. It is a treatment that is used to save a tooth from extraction, an absolute last-resort option at our practice. Root canals are common in cases where large cavities have done too much damage to fix with a tooth-colored filling or dental crown. They are also used in cases where a tooth infection is simply too invasive to control.
Steps of a Root Canal
Dental Zone Mountain View offers state-of-the-art endodontic treatment to Mountain View dental patients who need a solution to severe tooth damage right away.
• After a thorough X-ray session and evaluation, we can begin the root canal procedure. The first step in a root canal is to numb the area of the mouth being treated with local anesthesia.
• A rubber dam is placed over the tooth to isolate the treatment area.
• Next, our team will drill a small hole in the wall of the tooth.
• The tissue inside the tooth root, the nerve and pulp, are gently extracted using root canal files.
• The canals are then cleaned well, flushed with a special sterilizing solution, and sealed off.
• During the next visit, the empty root canal is filled with a rubber compound called gutta percha.
• We will add an onlay or inlay to the tooth, followed by a dental crown to protect the enamel.
