Root Canal Therapy: Demystifying the Process for a Healthier Smile

Weare Family Dentistry, nestled in the serene town of Weare, NH, under Dr. Esin Narli’s experienced guidance, specializes in comprehensive dental care, including root canal treatments. This blog aims to elucidate the intricacies of root canal therapy, debunking common myths and highlighting its importance in preserving dental health.

Understanding Root Canal Treatment

Root canal therapy is a dental procedure designed to treat infection at the center of a tooth (the root canal system). This treatment is not only about relieving dental pain but also about preventing the spread of infection and saving the natural tooth.

The Need for Root Canal Therapy

When the pulp inside your tooth, which contains nerves and blood vessels, becomes infected due to decay or injury, it can lead to pain and swelling. If left untreated, this infection can cause tooth abscesses and even spread to other parts of the body. Root canal therapy is the preferred method to address these issues effectively.

The Procedure: Step-by-Step

  1. Diagnosis and Planning: Utilizing advanced imaging techniques, Dr. Narli and her team at Weare Family Dentistry diagnose the extent of the infection.
  2. Anesthesia and Tooth Isolation: The area around the tooth is numbed for a pain-free experience. A rubber dam is placed to keep the tooth dry.
  3. Access and Cleaning: A small opening is made in the crown of the tooth to access the pulp. The infected pulp is removed, and the root canal system is thoroughly cleaned.
  4. Filling and Sealing: The cleaned canals are filled with a biocompatible material and sealed to prevent reinfection.
  5. Restoration: A crown or filling is placed to restore the tooth’s functionality and appearance.

Benefits of Root Canal Therapy

  • Pain Relief: Effectively eliminates pain caused by the infected pulp.
  • Tooth Preservation: Allows you to keep your natural tooth.
  • Prevents Spread of Infection: Stops the infection from spreading to other teeth or areas of the body.
  • Improved Oral Health: Contributes to overall dental health and wellness.
