Root Canals Explained

As we mentioned, the time for endodontics is when the tooth’s pulp becomes inflamed or infected, but the symptoms of these situations are not always immediately evident. Here are some signs that you may need a root canal or endodontics consultation with HKS Dental:

  • Tooth or gum pain
  • Tooth or gum discoloration
  • Prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold foods or drinks
  • Tooth or gum tenderness
  • A tooth abscess, typically shown through a bump or pimple on the gums with pus
  • A bitter or foul taste in the mouth; persistent bad breath
  • Facial swelling or tenderness
  • Swelling or tenderness in the lymph nodes of the lower jaw or the neck

If you’re noticing these signs, we recommend calling HKS Dental today to schedule an appointment for a closer look.

Root Canal Procedure

A root canal procedure, also known as endodontic treatment, is a dental procedure aimed at saving and restoring a severely damaged or infected tooth. It involves the removal of the infected or inflamed pulp from the tooth’s inner chamber and the subsequent cleaning, disinfection, and sealing of the root canals.
This procedure is necessary when the pulp, which contains nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue, becomes infected due to deep decay, cracks, trauma, or repeated dental procedures. Root canals are typically performed by endodontists, who are specialized dentists with advanced training in treating the tooth’s interior. The procedure begins with the administration of local anesthesia to ensure patient comfort.

The dentist then creates an access point to reach the pulp chamber and carefully removes the infected tissue. Once the canals are cleaned and shaped, a biocompatible material is used to fill and seal the canals, preventing further infection. In most cases, a dental crown is placed on the treated tooth to restore its strength and function.
Root canal procedures are highly successful, enabling patients to retain their natural teeth and alleviate the pain and discomfort associated with tooth infections. Regular dental check-ups and maintaining good oral hygiene are crucial in preventing the need for root canals.

Root Canal Therapy

The root canal procedure is necessary when the soft inner tissue, known as the dental pulp, becomes infected or inflamed due to deep decay, cracks, trauma, or repeated dental procedures. Root canal therapy involves the careful removal of the infected or damaged pulp from the tooth’s root canals, followed by thorough cleaning, disinfection, and sealing of the canals.

The process begins with the administration of local anesthesia to ensure patient comfort. Next, the dentist creates an access point to reach the root canals and carefully removes the infected tissue. The canals are then cleaned, shaped, and filled with a biocompatible material to prevent further infection and restore the tooth’s integrity. In most cases, a dental crown is placed over the treated tooth to provide strength and protection.
Root canal therapy is an effective and reliable solution for saving a natural tooth, relieving pain, and restoring oral health. Regular dental check-ups and maintaining good oral hygiene practices are essential for preventing the need for root canal therapy.
