Root Canals: Are You Sure My Tooth Is Safe Now?
When you receive a root canal treatment, you know that the reason you’re doing so is because your tooth has seen better days! This moment might mean that your tooth is on the verge of requiring an extraction, so it’s a certain rescue for your oral health! What could be better, you wonder? However, you may then wonder if this is going to be a long-term solution. Is it possible for your tooth become infected again? What exactly is it that we do to ensure this doesn’t happen? Rest assured: We understand how you are feeling and this is a very common and wonderful question. Our Cleveland, TX team can answer it very easily, so you feel fully confident in restoring your smile.
We Thoroughly Remove Infection
Our team encourages you to keep in mind that when you receive a root canal treatment, we are thoroughly removing any existing infection. There’s no reason to worry about infection being left behind. There are many means through which we will ensure your tissue is on the road to recovery.
We Remove Decayed Dental Tissue
In addition to removing the infection during your root canal treatment, remember that we will also remove any decayed tissue. You may forget that where there is a tooth infection, there is often a large cavity and decayed tissue. The goal throughout the process is to get the entire site healthy and completely clean, so we can move forward with your oral health and smile intact. Don’t forget that restorative care means restoring your smile health or, essentially, making it what it once was.
We Seal Your Roots
There’s a substance that you may hear described as “rubbery” and it is called gutta percha. This is the material that we use to seal your tooth’s roots, so bacteria cannot sneak back in. Remember, we thoroughly seal your tooth during your root canal treatment, so it remains healthy.
We Fill The Tooth
If there’s an opening in your tooth tissue that remains during your root canal treatment, we will fill this area with a filling, so bacteria do not enter and to protect the structural stability of your tooth.
We Cover And Seal Your Tooth
The final seal, structural restorer, and bacterial inhibitor that may complete your root canal treatment is a lifelike dental crown. Your tooth will seem good as new and it will stay that way!
