Root Canals Treatment and Its Facts

What is Root Canal

A root canal is a treatment to repair and save an infected tooth. The treatment procedure involves removing the damaged area of tooth i.e, the pulp by cleaning, disinfecting it, then filling and sealing it. The most common causes for the pulp to get infected are cracked tooth, cavity, and repeated dental treatment to the tooth. The term "root canal" comes from cleaning the canal inside the tooth's root.

The main goal of Root Canals in Fremont isn't to cause you Immense Pain, but the main purpose is to save the tooth that is severely infected. Thanks to modern technology and techniques root canal have become a comfortable treatment and require one or two trips to Endodontist in Fremont.

When Root Canal is Needed?

A root canal is generally recommended when there is an infection deep inside the tooth. The pulp inside the tooth gets infected with bacteria because of an injury and untreated cavity. If this left untreated the infection become severe enough that the tooth has to be removed.

The Procedure of Root Canals in Fremont:

  1. Our Endodontist uses local anesthesia to numb the tooth using a needle. After the tooth gets numb a dental dam is placed that isolates the tooth to keep it clean and dry during the procedure.

  2. The top portion of the tooth is opened by using a very small tool, such as a small drill to access the inside part of the tooth. A small file is used to clean the infected pulp, the inner chamber of tooth, root, and irrigate the chamber with water to wash away any remaining pulp.

  3. Once the chamber gets thoroughly cleaned and dried our endodontist will fill it with a rubber-like material called Gutta-Percha.

  4. Once the above three procedure gets completed our endodontist will close the opening of the tooth with a temporary filling, After a few weeks, the treatment gets completed by placing a permanent crown on top of the tooth.
