What is Root Canal Therapy?

During root canal therapy, a root filling replaces the tooth’s damaged or contaminated dentin. The tooth’s pulp keeps it alive. In its porous center are nerves, tissue fibers, and blood arteries. One other name for the procedure of replacing or repairing damaged or infected dentin is endodontic therapy.

In most instances, endodontic treatment is effective. 90% to 95% of individuals who undergo root canal therapy will retain a functional tooth. The fixed tooth should last a very long time if you practice excellent oral hygiene, limit your sugar intake, and receive routine dental exams. A healthy tooth, however, will always outlive any treatment or replacement.

More About Root Canal Therapy


What Are the Causes of Root Canal?

If dentists advise you that you need a root canal, you're probably concerned about locating an affordable root canal service. In fact, root canal costs are frequently so exorbitant that paying for the procedure is frequently more excruciating than recovering from it. However, at Zara Dental, Houston, we endeavor to make endodontics painless for both the patient and their wallet. Untreated tooth decay can frequently lead to infection or inflammation of the nerve or pulp tissue of the tooth if left untreated. Additionally, multiple fillings may cause this inflammation or infection. When this occurs, a root canal treatment will be necessary. The space between the tooth and its roots is the root canal. Your dentist will remove infected and inflamed tissue from the root canal during a root canal procedure. The canal is then filled and sealed with a special material to prevent future infection or inflammation.


How Common Is Root Canal Treatment?

The American Association of Endodontists says that more than 41,000 root canals are done every day in the United States. This means that more than 15 million people get root canal treatment each year.


Recovery after Root Canal Therapy

It's crucial to look after your teeth after a root canal. Prior to the conclusion of your treatment, you should refrain from eating anything too chewy. After your last treatment, your fixed tooth should no longer be painful, but it may continue to ache for a few days. You can purchase over-the-counter analgesics like ibuprofen or paracetamol to ease any pain. If you continue to experience pain or swelling after taking analgesics, you should re-visit your dentist.

Most of the time, you can avoid having to get more root canal treatment by:

1. Taking care of your teeth by daily brushing and flossing
2. not eating too many sweet things
3. if you smoke, giving it up
