What Is Root Canal Therapy?

Root canal therapy is a critical dental procedure designed to treat problems related to the inner tooth or pulp that if left untreated, can lead to severe infection and even tooth loss. The process involves removing the infected or inflamed pulp, carefully cleaning and disinfecting the inside of the tooth, followed by filling and sealing it to prevent further infection.

Benefits of Root Canal Therapy

  • Effective Pain Relief: Root canal therapy is highly effective in eliminating pain caused by deep decay or infection in the pulp of the tooth.
  • Tooth Preservation: This treatment allows for the saving of a tooth that might otherwise need to be extracted, maintaining your natural smile and bite.
  • Prevention of Spread of Infection: By treating the infection, root canal therapy prevents it from spreading to other teeth or into the jaw and other facial structures.
  • Improved Overall Dental Health: A successful root canal treatment contributes to overall dental health by preserving the tooth and its surrounding tissues.

Detailed Process of Root Canal Therapy at South Shore Dental Group

  1. Initial Diagnosis: Utilizing advanced diagnostic tools, our specialists like Dr. David Pelham assess the extent of infection or damage to provide a precise treatment plan.
  2. Anesthesia and Comfort: Ensuring patient comfort is our priority. The affected area is numbed thoroughly to make the procedure pain-free.
  3. Pulp Removal and Cleaning: Infected pulp is removed, and the canals are meticulously cleaned and shaped to prepare for the filling material.
  4. Filling the Canals: The canals are filled with a biocompatible material, which is then sealed to prevent any further infection
  5. Restoration: The tooth is restored with a crown or filling for protection and to restore full functionality, overseen by Dr. Christine Melito to ensure the perfect fit and aesthetic.
