What is root canal?

Root Canal is a dental procedure to treat infection in the central (pulp) and nerve tissue regions within the roots of a tooth. It is not commonly painful and can save a tooth, which may otherwise have to be removed completely.

Why is it needed?

Bacteria that live in the mouth invading the tooth can cause the infection of the pulp and root canal system. This can be due to tooth decay (caries), leaking fillings or crowns or trauma, such as a fall or the tooth being knocked.

Did You Know?

As the infection progresses, some of theses symptoms often disappear temporarily as the pulp dies. Your tooth then appears to have healed, but the infection has in fact spread through the root canal system.

How is the procedure done?

To treat the infection in the root canal, the bacteria need to be removed by either cleaning and disinfecting the root canal system or extracting the tooth.

After the bacteria has been removed, the root canal is filled and the tooth sealed with a filling or crown. In most cases the inflamed tissue near the tooth will heal naturally. Before having root canal treatment, you’ll usually be given a local anaesthetic. This means the procedure should be painless and no more unpleasant than having a filling. Root canal treatment is usually successful. In about 9 out of 10 cases a tooth can survive for up to 10 years after root canal treatment.

How long is the recovery?

It’s important to look after your teeth when recovering from root canal treatment. You should avoid biting on hard foods until your treatment is complete.

After your final treatment, your restored tooth should no longer be painful, although it may feel sensitive for a few days. You can take over-the-counter painkillers, such as Paracetamol or Ibuprofen, to relieve any discomfort. Return to your dentist if you still have pain or swelling after using painkillers.
