Root Canals

At DentaQuest, we understand that maintaining the health of your teeth and gums is crucial for your overall well-being. Root canals, also known as endodontic treatment, are a specialized dental procedure that can save a severely damaged or infected tooth. This treatment is designed to alleviate pain, preserve your natural tooth, and restore your oral health.

Why You May Need a Root Canal:

Root canals become necessary when the pulp, the innermost part of a tooth, becomes infected or inflamed. This can be caused by severe tooth decay, deep cavities, cracks, or trauma to the tooth. When the pulp is compromised, it can lead to excruciating pain, abscesses, and the potential for tooth loss. Root canals are a crucial solution to address these issues and save your tooth from extraction.

If you’re experiencing persistent, severe tooth pain, swelling around the affected tooth, sensitivity to hot or cold, or notice a pimple-like bump on your gums, it’s essential to consult our experienced team at DentaQuest. We will assess your condition and recommend a root canal when necessary, allowing you to regain your comfort and preserve your natural smile.

Our experienced team at DentaQuest will assess your oral health and recommend treatment when necessary. If you’re experiencing symptoms like tooth sensitivity, pain while chewing, or notice visible pits or holes in your teeth, it’s essential to schedule an appointment for a thorough examination. Early detection and timely treatment can save you from more extensive dental procedures in the future.

The Procedure

The Root Canal Treatment Process:

At DentaQuest, we prioritize your comfort and the success of your treatment. Here’s an overview of what to expect during a root canal procedure:

  1. Diagnosis: One of our dentists will begin by diagnosing the issue through a comprehensive examination and often using X-rays to visualize the root canal system.

  2. Local Anaesthetic: To ensure you’re completely comfortable throughout the procedure, a local anesthetic will be administered to numb the affected area.

  3. Access to the Pulp: A small opening is made in the tooth to access the infected or inflamed pulp.

  4. Cleaning and Shaping: The infected or damaged pulp is carefully removed, and the interior of the tooth is thoroughly cleaned and shaped to eliminate any remaining bacteria.

  5. Filling and Sealing: The now-empty space is filled, and the tooth is sealed to prevent further infection.

  6. Restoration: Depending on the extent of the damage, a dental crown may be placed on the treated tooth to restore its strength and appearance.

Root canals at DentaQuest are performed with precision and care, ensuring you can preserve your natural tooth and alleviate pain effectively. Our experienced team is dedicated to providing the highest quality of patient-centric care, making your experience as comfortable as possible.
