Root Canal Treatment

An Essential Procedure to Save an Infected Tooth

The aim of a root canal treatment is to remove the dental pulp when it is infected or damaged. The pulp is the part in the centre of the tooth that contains the nerves and the blood vessels. Many factors can be the root cause of an infection or the damage, for example, a deep cavity, a dental fracture or a broken filling. Root canal treatment aims to prevent the spread of the infection that may cause dental abscess.

In short, the purpose of a root canal treatment is to save a damaged tooth without which it will have to be extracted and replaced. At Groupe dentaire API, we combine expertise and thoroughness to carry out effective root canal treatments.

Root Canal: a Gentle Procedure

The myth that a root canal treatment is very painful still persists. Actually, the purpose of this procedure is to relieve your pain. In many cases, the dental pulp, which is full of nerves, causes a lot of pain.

In addition, thanks to tools and modern anesthetic techniques, root canal treatments are generally no more painful than getting a filling.

Root Canal Treatment Procedure

The treatment is carried out under local anesthesia.

  • Your dentist will place a dam around the tooth being treated to protect it from bacteria and saliva.
  • The dentist then makes a hole in the tooth to reach the dental pulp.
  • By using a special tool, the dentist removes the pulp and widens the canal.
  • The canal is cleaned and then filled with material resembling some kind of rubber.
  • The hole is sealed with a filling.
  • In some cases, the tooth must be covered with a dental crown to increase its sturdiness.
