Description

Root Canal Treatment offers relief caused by infected teeth. Decay in teeth may even spread to the pulp/nerve, leading to irreparable inflammation. As a result, you may feel an abrupt throbbing pain or pain which arises when biting on an affected tooth or on several affected teeth.

Our dentists at FDC use advanced root canal treatment equipment from Switzerland to treat patients with root canal problems so that you will feel comfortable during the procedure. Anaesthesia will be administered during a Root Canal Treatment.


Benefit

Resume chewing and regain your normal biting force

Preserve your natural appearance

Safeguard your teeth from strain


Process

During a Root Canal Treatment, the infected pulp is removed and the inner part of your tooth is cleaned and filled with a rubber-like material. After this, your tooth is restored with a crown or a filling. 


Suitability

You will need a root canal treatment if your pulp is damaged. The signs of pulp damage includes:

Discoloration of the teeth
Sensitivity to cold or heat
Tenderness in the gums
Bad taste in the mouth

Pre-Treatment

Potential risks associated with root canal treatment:

  • Definite diagnosis can be difficult
  • Post operative discomfort or sensitivity
  • Post operative swelling/infection
  • Restricted mouth opening
  • Poor healing response
  • Additional treatment may be required
  • Premature tooth loss
Post-Treatment

What to expect after Root Canal Treatment?

It is normal to feel some tenderness in the area for a few days after your root canal treatment as your body undergoes the natural healing process.

You may also feel some tenderness in your jaw from keeping it open for an extended period of time. These symptoms are temporary and usually respond very well to over-the-counter pain medications.

Your tooth may continue to feel slightly different from your other teeth for some time after your root canal treatment has been completed. However, if you have severe pain or pressure that lasts more than a few days, contact us.

How do I take care of the Root Canal treated tooth?

Do not eat anything until the numbness in your mouth wears off. This will prevent you from biting your cheek or tongue.

Do not chew or bite on the treated tooth until you have had it restored by your dentist. Be sure to brush and floss your teeth as you normally would.

If the opening in your tooth was restored with a temporary filling material, it is not unusual for a thin layer to wear off in-between appointments. However, if you think the entire filling has come out, contact our clinic.

Contact us right away if you develop any of the following:

  • A visible swelling inside or outside of your mouth;
  • An allergic reaction to medication, including rash, hives or itching (nausea is not an allergic reaction);
  • A return of original symptoms; or
  • Your bite feels uneven

How long will the tooth last?

With proper restoration and dental care such as proper brushing and flossing, regular dental check-up, it may last a lifetime. After the completion of endodontic treatment, your dentists will usually advise on a restoration, for instance a crown that protects the tooth from future fracture.
