General Questions

Understanding When Root Canal Treatment is Necessary

When is root canal treatment necessary? The tooth consists of three main layers: the enamel on the outside, the middle layer called dentin, and the inner layer known as the pulp. The pulp contains nerves and blood vessels that nourish the tooth root. If the pulp becomes inflamed or infected, the infection can spread down the root, potentially affecting critical mouth structures. Traditionally, this situation would lead to tooth extraction. However, at Gentle & caring dentistry we can  perform root canal treatment to preserve the tooth.

What does root canal therapy involve? At Gentle and Caring Dentistry, we ensure you’re fully informed about the procedure and any associated risks before beginning treatment:

      • We numb the treatment area using local anesthesia via THE WAND and cdd asn  offer sedation dentistry as well .
      • The infected pulp is carefully removed from the tooth, and the area is cleaned and sealed to prevent further infection.
      • If necessary, we may recommend a dental crown to strengthen and protect the tooth.
