Why Should You Choose a Root Canal?

Posted by Healthy Smile Dental Care on Sep 7 2021, 11:05 AM

A root canal is a dental procedure that removes an infected tooth root, prevents reinfection, and saves the natural tooth. The treatment consists of clearing out the infected soft tissue and disinfecting the canal before filling and sealing it. 

Root canal is one of the most common dental procedures and more than 15 million people undergo a root canal each year. 

Dr. Ramirez, Dr. Perez, and Dr. Conde at Healthy Smile Dental Care in Hialeah, Florida, provide dozens of dental treatments and procedures for patients to help maintain their dental health and bright smiles. 

In this blog, we’re taking a closer look at why you should choose a root canal.

What Happens During a Root Canal?

At Healthy Smile Dental Care in Hialeah, Florida, a root canal procedure involves a few simple steps:

  • One of our dentists will numb the area of the infected tooth. 
  • Next, they will make an incision to access the affected area and remove the damaged or dead pulp.
  • Once our dentist removes the pulp, they will clean the chamber to ensure there are no bacterial deposits left that can cause an infection.
  • Then, our dentist will fill the pulp chamber with gutta-percha - a material commonly used to replace the decayed pulp.
  • The last step involves placing a filling material or crown above the tooth to restore its form, function, and appearance. 

Why Should You Choose Root Canal?

Here are a few reasons why you should get a root canal done:

  • You experience pain while chewing or biting.
  • You have a chipped or cracked tooth.
  • You have swollen gums or deep tooth decay.
  • You experience tooth sensitivity when consuming hot or cold foods or beverages.

A root canal is a painless and effective solution to prevent pain and infection when the soft tissue inside your teeth is damaged or decayed. The procedure helps restore your tooth to its original functionality, prevents the surrounding teeth from infection, and improves your oral health.
