Preparation of the Root Canals

endocare-procedures03

Preparation of Root Canals

Endodontic or ‘root canal’ treatment can often be performed in one or two visits. First the area is carefully numbed so you don’t feel any pain at all. A small protective sheet called a ‘dental dam’ is placed over the teeth to keep the area clean and dry. We will then create a small opening in the crown of your tooth to allow us to clean out the infected pulp from inside your tooth.

Filling of the Root Canals

After the space is cleaned and shaped, the root canals are filled with a rubber-like material called ‘gutta-percha’ to ensure the root canals are completely sealed. In most cases, a temporary filling will then be used to close the opening in your tooth. Once your tooth has been closed up you willl then be asked to make a follow-up appointment with us to check everything is as it should be.

Once you are completely satisfied with your treatment with us, you must then return to your normal dentist to have the temporary filling replaced and the tooth restored to further protect and seal it from harmful bacteria. If the tooth lacks sufficient structure to hold the restoration in place, your dentist may place a post inside the tooth before the tooth is built up with a solid core.

Endodontic Re-treatment

Occasionally a tooth may not heal as expected after initial treatment. This can happen for a variety of reasons, the most common of which are listed in this section. A re-treated tooth can function well for years, or even a full lifetime. However, once a tooth has been previously treated, the success rates of further re-treatments drop to about 80%.

  • MAIN REASONS FOR RE-TREATMENT:

    REASON-1: Difficulty in cleaning very fine, narrow canals, leaving unclean portions of the root. 

    REASON-2: Complicated canal anatomy, perhaps with extra, undetected canals.

    REASON-3: Further bacterial leakage around the filling/crown or a fracture allowing contamination.
