What Is Root Canal Therapy?
Chipped and decayed teeth are generally corrected using a silver filling or tooth-colored filling when they are caught and managed in a timely manner; however, when the bacteria spread to the center of the tooth, also called the pulp, root canal therapy is usually needed to restore oral wellness and prevent extraction. A root canal is an endodontic procedure provided at the Center for Dentofacial Aesthetics to remove diseased inner tooth tissue and preserve the vulnerable tooth. Dr. Leonel Perez and Dr. Harshit Aggarwal treat infected or deteriorating teeth using gentle root canal therapy and offer sedation techniques to further increase your comfort. If you have a severely damaged or abscessed tooth, call our Annandale, VA practice as soon as possible for root canal treatment.
What Is the Root Canal Process?
At our Annandale, VA practice, root canal therapy is done using local anesthesia, which can be paired with IV sedation dentistry to increase your comfort. As soon as the tooth has become numb, a shield is positioned to block the patient's oral structures, and the inflamed region will be exposed through a small opening made in the upper part of the tooth. The pulp (which comprises the nerves and blood storage for every tooth) will be removed, and the inner canal will be modified utilizing handheld endodontic instruments before being entirely disinfected. We can then protect the infected tooth using a high-quality material and finish it off with a composite filling to encourage the healing process.
