Root Canal Treatment

What is root canal?

A root canal is a space at the centre of a tooth. A pulp is the soft tissue in the tooth that consists of blood vessels, connective tissues and nerve.

If the area is invaded with bacteria by means of cracked or tooth decay, one can experience acute pain. The infection can become worse and will lead to dental abscess or fracture of the tooth.

A pulp is essential in the development of the tooth. In a fully developed tooth, the tooth can survive without the pulp because the tooth continues to be nourished by the tissues surrounding it.

When do you need root canal treatment?

You may need to consider root canal treatment if you have;
• Dental injury
• Acute Pain
• Bruxism
• Untreated tooth decay
• Pain on normal chewing
• Discoloured tooth

The benefit of root canal treatment is it allows you to keep the previously painful or infected tooth. It will reduce the cost of replacing new tooth which most of the time is more expensive than retaining it.

In Klinik Pergigian Mawarni, the procedure may take 1-3 visits depending on the complexity of the case.

Our dentist will provide local anaesthesia for the procedure. Then, the root canal will be cleaned and shaped nicely and eventually filled. The tooth will finally be restored with a crown or bonded restoration.
