Restore health & function
If you’re experiencing a significant toothache or have left a cavity untreated it’s possible you may need a root canal to help restore the health of the tooth and ultimately keep the tooth. A root canal treatment is necessary when the pulp (soft tissue inside your teeth containing blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue) becomes inflamed or diseased.
During the root canal treatment, the diseased pulp is removed by our Miami dental professionals. The pulp chamber and root canal(s) of the tooth are then cleaned and sealed. If the infected pulp is not removed, pain and swelling can result, and your tooth may have to be extracted. Though they are commonly thought of as painful, patients are normally under anesthesia during the root canal procedure and do not feel any more pain than a typical procedure like getting a filling.
Getting a root canal is a great way to restore the health of your tooth and keep a confident smile. If you continue to care for your teeth and gums your restored tooth could last a lifetime. However, regular checkups are necessary; a tooth without its nerve can still develop cavities or gum disease.
Frequently Asked Questions
A root canal in Miami is a dental procedure that is performed in order to treat and save a tooth that is infected, decayed, or damaged. It involves removing the infected or damaged pulp (the innermost part of the tooth) and cleaning, disinfecting, and sealing the tooth’s interior.
A root canal is necessary in order to keep the tooth and protect the integrity of the tooth so that the tooth doesn’t continue to decay or cause infection. Without treatment, the infection can spread, and the tooth might need to be extracted.
Typically if you need a root canal you will know based on the tooth in question. You will experience a severe toothache, sensitivity to hot and cold, and pain when you’re chewing or biting. If you’re wondering whether or not you may need a root canal bring it up to your Miami dentist in MaDental Associates.
Despite the rumors root canal procedures feel no different from other dental procedures getting a filling. Modern root canal procedures are performed under local anesthesia, which numbs the area around the tooth, ensuring you won’t feel pain during the procedure. There might be some discomfort afterward, which can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.
Yes, after a root canal, your tooth should function like a healthy tooth. Though it will have a crown on it to prevent it from further damage you won’t notice otherwise.
Root canal procedures vary in length depending on several factors like the complexity of the case, location of the tooth, the type of sedation used, and more. Before the procedure, your local Miami dentist will go over an estimate for the procedure time.
Though it is unlikely, it is possible for a tooth that has gone through a root canal to get infected again. Good oral hygiene practices and regular dental visits will reduce the likelihood of that tooth becoming infected again.
The cost of a root canal can vary based on factors such as the tooth’s location, the complexity of the case, and your geographical location. It’s generally more cost-effective than tooth extraction followed by a tooth replacement option like a dental implant. Your insurance also will play a factor in the cost of the procedure.
