Root Canal Treatment

A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed, well over 14 million every year. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need of dental implants or bridges.

At the center of your tooth there is a space where pulp is located. Pulp is a collection of blood vessels and nerves that brings nutrients and gives sensitivity to the tooth. As a result of trauma to the tooth, deep decay, cracks and chips, or repeated dental procedures, pulp can get infected or damaged. Typical symptoms of the infection would be intense reaction to cold or heat, pain in the tooth at night, unprovoked pain, pain on biting at the tooth, swelling of the gum. Often pain is referring to the side of the head, along the jaws, to the ear.

If you experience any of these symptoms, Dr. Kabak or Dr. Yurchuk will most likely recommend non-surgical treatment of the tooth, so called root canal treatment. The injured pulp will be removed and the root canal system thoroughly cleaned and sealed. This therapy usually involves local anesthesia ( freezing) and may be completed in one or more visits depending on the complexity of treatment. Success for this type of treatment occurs in about 96% of cases. If your tooth is not amenable to endodontic treatment or the chance of success is unfavorable, you will be informed at the time of consultation or when a complication becomes evident during or after treatment.
