Dental patients tend to shy away from the words “root canal,” associating endodontic therapy with oral pain, anxiety, and fear. But by learning about the root canal procedure, which is performed daily at Rockland Endodontics, you may begin to understand that root canals are a successful tool to restore the health to diseased or decayed teeth.

Endodontics is a specialized branch of dentistry that focuses onĀ  the tissue surrounding the tooth and the tooth pulp. When a tooth is traumatically injured, fractured, or decayed, endodontic treatment is required to remove the dead and infected tissue and replace it with a dental filler to prevent re-infection and to keep the tooth from dying. Many people believe that root canals are painful procedures, but removing the damaged portion of the tooth is done under anesthesia and will not cause any discomfort. In fact, root canals are only painful before you seek treatment with an endodontist. Most root canals take two to three visits to Rockland Endodontics, however, in some cases, our Pearl River root canal specialists may be able to perform the procedure in one simple visit.

In short, root canals are extremely effective treatment and are sometimes the only way to remove a bacterial infection from a tooth. It’s important to remember that an infected tooth will not heal on its own, so receiving a root canal from Rockland Endodontics will not only restore your tooth to its healthy state, but will alleviate the toothache-symptoms that are commonly associated with a root canal.

All of your teeth have between one and four root canals. Root canals are tiny passageways that branch off from beneath the top of the tooth, coursing their way vertically downward until they reach the tip of the root. Many tooth problems involve infections that spread to the pulp, the inner chamber of the tooth containing blood vessels, nerves, and other tissues, through these canals. Our Orangeburg root canal specialists at Rockland Endodontics can remove the infections by performing root canal therapy.

A diseased inner tooth bring a host of problems to patients, including pain and sensitivity as the first indications of a problem. Inside a spreading infection can cause small pockets of pus to develop, which can lead to an abscess. To remove the diseased tissue and halt the spread of infection, root canal therapy at Rockland Endodontics can restore the healthy portion of the tooth. Our Orangeburg endodontists perform root canal therapy with a high rate of success. This endodontic procedure is designed to save a diseased tooth. Before root canal therapy became standard procedure, the only other alternative for treating a diseased tooth was extraction.

Root canal therapy with the endodontic specialists at Rockland Endodontics entails usually one to three visits. During the first visit with our Orangeburg root canal experts, a small hole is drilled through the top of the tooth and into the inner chamber. During this procedure, diseased tissue is removed, the inner chamber is cleansed and disinfected, and the tiny canals are reshaped. The cleansed chambers and canals are filled with an elastic material and medication to prevent further infection. If necessary, the drilled hole is temporarily filled until a permanent seal is made with a crown.

All of our patients at Rockland Endodontics who have a root canal experience little or not discomfort or pain. They enjoy a restored tooth that can last almost as long as its healthy original.
