The one thing that remains sure is the fact that an infected or decaying tooth will undoubtedly require a root canal treatment to eradicate the pulp and infection from within the roots of the tooth.

Let us know more about root canals and the ensuing treatment.

Root Canals

Which dental conditions require a root canal treatment?

As is common knowledge, the bulk of the tooth is composed of dentin, which is covered with a layer of enamel. Within the dentin, a soft layer of tissue known as the pulp is situated. It is here that a probable infection can incept such as in the case of an inflammation. Such swelling could be caused due to decaying tooth, dental fillings, and cracks in the tooth, accidents and more. Furthermore, any form of pain, cavity or other dental issue within a tooth could warrant a condition where a root canal treatment might prove to be a relief.

A root canal treatment would be suggested by our dentists in case they discover some form of infection or possible signs of a future infection inside a tooth, which could give rise to further dental issues. You could experience unreasonable pains, discomfort and swelling around the infected tooth, which could be signs that something within the tooth is extremely wrong. Moreover, the presence of a deep cavity inside a tooth can give way to bacteria to access the nerve bundle at the core of the tooth, which is responsible for the nourishment of the tooth and its structure. Ultimately, upon determining if the infected nerves would be able to recover naturally or not and whether the infection is still present within the tooth or not, Dr. Isaac Kashani, our head dental surgeon, along with his team of professionals in dental field, will be able to recommend a root canal treatment.

In our experience, running away from a treatment, merely because it sounds painful, will only cost you your peace of mind and convenience in the long run. In some cases, such negligence might also be responsible for aggravating the condition further. This is why, our advice would always be to get in touch with your dentist at the earliest, at the first signs of pain and discomfort in any tooth.

Is a root canal treatment safe?

If you are still reading and relying upon age old studies and research material about dental treatments, you will never be able to make up your mind about undergoing a dental root canal. Over the years, many baseless theories have vividly suggested that root canal treatments, among others, are not safe and pose a threat to dental health. However, we would gladly like to enlighten you with the truth that such theories are baseless and hardly rest upon any scientific backing.

The fact remains that the American Dental Association, regularly reviews and updates allowed dental practices as per the acceptable norms and guidelines that have been built up over the years after careful speculation.

Is it better to undergo a root canal treatment or simply to have a tooth removed in its entirety?

For patients who require a root canal treatment, we have often come across suggestions and queries, asking us to get rid of the tooth which is infected or damaged, so that the problem is eradicated at the root level. It is sad to know that such false misconceptions are making the rounds among people these days, where they are hoping to get rid of their natural teeth, simply to get rid of a dental problem.

When it comes to dental problems, always remember that as far as possible, you must try to save your natural teeth. The reason for this is quite simple. The shape, structure and appearance of a natural tooth can never be replicated exactly with an artificial tooth. No matter how professionally a dentist might administer a treatment for replacing a tooth, you will never be as satisfied with it as having your original tooth.

Nowadays, root canal treatments are quite long lasting and also require just a few sittings with the dentist to complete. However, completely taking off a tooth and then replacing it with another might not only cost you a lot many extra bucks but also need more time and sittings from you. Thus, from every point of view, a root canal treatment proves to be an ergonomic dental treatment, in comparison to most other treatments.
