Frequently Asked Questions

Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic therapy, is a dental procedure performed to remove infected or damaged pulp (the inner soft tissue) from inside the tooth, clean and disinfect the root canals, and seal them to prevent further infection.

Root canal treatment is necessary when the pulp of a tooth becomes infected or inflamed due to deep decay, repeated dental procedures, cracked or fractured teeth, or trauma. Symptoms may include severe toothache, sensitivity to hot or cold, swelling, or a pimple-like bump on the gum.

Contrary to popular belief, root canal treatment is not typically painful. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia to numb the tooth and surrounding area, ensuring that patients are comfortable throughout the process. Any discomfort afterward can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain medication.

During a root canal procedure, the dentist or endodontist accesses the inner chamber of the tooth, removes the infected or damaged pulp, cleans and disinfects the root canals, and fills them with a biocompatible material. The tooth is then sealed with a filling or crown to restore its function and appearance.

The duration of a root canal procedure can vary depending on factors such as the location and complexity of the affected tooth, the extent of infection, and the skill of the dentist. On average, root canal treatment typically takes one to two hours to complete.

Yes, a tooth that has undergone root canal treatment can still function normally. Although the pulp has been removed, the tooth remains anchored in the jawbone and can continue to function for chewing and biting, after it is restored with a crown or filling to provide additional strength and protection.

In most cases, it is recommended to place a crown (dental cap) on a tooth following root canal treatment, especially for back teeth that are subjected to significant biting forces. A crown helps protect the weakened tooth from fracturing and restores its strength, function, and appearance.

Root canal treatment has a high success rate, with studies indicating success rates of over 95% for properly performed procedures. However, the long-term success of root canal treatment depends on factors such as the tooth’s condition, the presence of any underlying issues, and the patient’s oral hygiene habits.

The primary alternative to root canal treatment is tooth extraction, which involves removing the entire tooth from the socket. However, extracting a tooth can lead to other complications such as shifting of neighboring teeth, changes in bite alignment, and the need for replacement options such as dental implants or bridges.

The cost of root canal treatment varies depending on factors such as the location of the tooth, the complexity of the procedure, and whether additional treatments such as a crown are needed. Generally, root canal treatment is more cost-effective than tooth extraction followed by tooth replacement options. It’s advisable to consult with your dentist or endodontist for a personalized cost estimate.
