Root Canal

Root Canal

Acadian Family Dental wants you to treat symptoms before they become major health concerns.

If you are experiencing oral pain or discomfort let the experts at Acadian Dental examine you to determine whether you need treatment.

If indicated, a root canal can preserve your tooth as well as heal or prevent infection.

 

Saving the Tooth

The pulp inside your tooth is made of nerves and blood vessels. If the pulp becomes infected or inflamed due to a deep cavity, a crack or an injury to the tooth, bacteria can spread and threaten the tooth, the tissue around it and even the bone of your jaw.

Without a root canal procedure, the entire tooth may need to be removed.

 

Performing the Root Canal

The area around your tooth is numbed and dried so the pulp can be removed from the pulp chamber and the root canal. Next, the canal is cleaned and reshaped. In order to eliminate bacteria and reduce the chance of infection, we treat the root canal and pulp chamber with medication and then apply a rubber-like substance to seal it up.

Finally, we apply a temporary filling in the tooth to protect the newly treated root canal.
