Root Canal Treatment

What to expect during root canal treatment

Root canal treatment is a common procedure done for patients in an attempt to salvage a natural tooth. Instead of extracting a tooth that has become infected or has a very large cavity, Dr. Terry Vines of Pure Gold Professionals in Dentistry in Redlands, California may instead suggest a root canal, also known as endodontic therapy. Root canal treatment is done to avoid removing a permanent tooth.

Root canal treatment keeps the structure of the tooth intact while removing the inner portion of the tooth called the dental pulp. This mass of tissues within the cavity of the tooth houses the nerves and blood supply. When removed, this deadens the tooth but keeps the structure. The removal of the dental pulp may weaken the tooth structure, so patients may consider providing structure and protection to their tooth by placing a dental crown over the top. This helps in maintaining the tooth’s strength and keeping it from experiencing breakage.

Dr. Terry Vines and the team of Pure Gold Professionals in Dentistry complete this procedure quickly and efficiently. Patients who need a dental crown may have preparation done during the procedure and impressions made to fabricate the new restoration. These patients may have to return to the practice for the placement of the dental crown but will leave the initial procedure appointment with a temporary in the meantime. Our practice wants to help maintain the natural structure of the smile to keep it, beautiful and functioning at its best. We explain to our patients the entire process so there are no surprises throughout the root canal treatment. Knowing what to expect can help patients be prepared for what to expect.
