Root Canal Treatment Tucson
A lot of people believe that a root canal treatment is very painful but that’s a misconception that’s been spread for some time now. However, if you understand the procedure you’ll discover that the treatment involves removing the nerve within the root of the tooth. Removing that nerve also removes the pain and what’s left is only the typical pain associated with healing from the surgery – nothing extra. There is little discomfort afterwards.
When Dr. Rosenberg decides that you root canal surgery it’s good news because that means he can save your tooth. rather than removing it.
Preparing For The Root Canal
Repairing the root canal is the way Dr. Rosenberg can save the entire tooth. The other alternative is to pull the tooth entirely. Leaving the space where your tooth used to be can create a myriad other dental problems related to eating, speaking and the alignment of your teeth can eventually deteriorate.
Teeth may also shift their position if missing teeth are not there to hold the space.
How Is The Procedure Done
The area around the tooth is numbed with a local anesthetic to start the procedure. Dr. Rosenberg will then drill down into the tooth to create an opening into the canal.
He will then remove the infected tissue and thoroughly clean the root canal and removed the infection.
After the infection has been removed, the space if filled with a sealant called gutta percha. In some cases the tooth will need to be fitted with a crown which improves the appearance of the tooth and makes the root canal surgery a success.
