In a glance.

Consider When

  • The tooth has extensive decay but the root is not affected.
  • There is inflammation or infection in the pulp of a baby tooth or an immature adult tooth.
  • The goal is to preserve the tooth for as long as possible.

Consider Other Options If

  • The infection has spread to the roots, making a full root canal necessary.
  • The tooth structure is severely compromised.

The Benefits

  • Prevents the premature loss of baby teeth, which are important for proper chewing and space maintenance for permanent teeth.
  • Offers a less invasive option compared to a full root canal.
  • Can provide immediate relief from toothache.

The Drawbacks

  • Not suitable for teeth with extensive root damage.
  • May require further treatment if the initial infection is not fully contained.

Learn the process.

1. Initial Assessment

Assessment of the infected tooth through X-rays and tests to confirm the need for a root canal.

2. Decay Removal

Removing decay before accessing the root canal system is important to prevent spread of disease.

3. Pulp Removal

Infected pulp is carefully removed from the tooth.

4. Root Canal Shaping

The root canals are prepared and shaped to remove any infected portions and to provide sufficient space for the sealing material.

5. Disinfection and Dressing

The root canals are then disinfected and dressed with antibacterial materials for the overall success of the treatment.

6. Sealing

The now sterile canals are finally sealed and locked to prevent any recurrence of infection.

End of Root Canal Treatment

The root canal treatment concludes when the canals are sealed and the tooth no longer exhibits symptoms. Subsequent steps fall under "Restorative Dentistry," which focuses on restoring the tooth's final shape, structure, and functionality.

Post Placement

When there's limited tooth structure remaining due to significant damage, a dental post may be necessary. This post helps reinforce the tooth, providing the support needed for the final restoration.

Final Restoration

The selection of the final restoration is influenced by the remaining tooth structure, overall dental health, and personal preferences. Common options include dental crowns, direct fillings, and indirect fillings.

The Scenario.

Regular dental checkups enable early detection, which can prevent complications that may otherwise necessitate endodontic treatment, or unfortunate tooth extraction.

The Solution.

What happens after a root canal treatment?

Following successful endodontic treatment, the now symptom-free tooth requires permanent restoration to reinstate its structure, shape, and function. After an endodontic treatment, the tooth loses its vitality, which eventually leads to a weakening of the overall tooth strength. This is an important consideration when selecting the final restoration as it should not only restore the tooth's shape and function but also protect the weakened tooth from further damage. The choice of restoration primarily depends on the remaining tooth structure, but also considers your overall dental health and personal preferences. Here are the most common final restoration options for a root-canal-treated tooth.

Dental Posts

Insufficient Tooth Structure?

In cases of substantial damage where tooth structure is compromised, a dental post becomes mandatory. This post plays a vital role in enforcing the tooth, ensuring adequate support and sufficient structure for the eventual restoration.

A message from Mirage Dental Clinic.

Preserving natural teeth is always our priority, and root canal treatment is a cornerstone in achieving this goal. Early detection and treatment of dental issues are crucial as delaying treatment can lead to situations where the tooth cannot be saved. Regular dental visits are essential for detecting early tooth decay before it reaches the critical pulpal area, allowing for simpler dental fillings to be used instead of endodontic treatments.

Steps and care.

Preventing further damage.

Before a root canal treatment
Maintain oral hygiene and share any concerns or allergies with us.
Between sessions
Temporary fillings will be placed between sessions. Refrain from eating on the side of the temporary restoration.
After root canal treatment
Resume normal activities; minor sensitivity may occur but will typically subside quickly.
