An endodontic treatment or a root canal therapy, as it is known, is a sequence of treatment for the infected tooth which results in the elimination of infection and the protection of the cleaned tooth from future bacterial attack. Left untreated, the injured pulp of a tooth can cause an infection that will harm the bone around the tooth and cause swelling and discomfort. If the injured tooth becomes infected, our dentists in Dubai may have to execute an endodontic treatment, frequently called root canal therapy in order to save it. This kind of method contains both primary and secondary endodontic treatments as well as periarticular operation, as applied to the teeth which the doctor considers they can be saved.
Endodontic treatment procedure
The endodontic treatment involves opening the tooth, eliminating the injured pulp, washing, shaping, filling and closing the tooth. First of all, a local anesthesia will be administrated to numb the tooth and the nearby soft tissue. If the pulp of the tooth is intensely irritated and, for that reason it is very painful, it may take a while to get it numb and our Dubai dentist will not proceed with the treatment if you still feel pain. Depending on how injured the tooth is, you may be put on medication before the dentist can start to work.
Endodontic therapy, a non-painful method
Most people consider endodontic treatment is a painful and disturbing process, but in fact, a root canal technique is really no more painful than having a filling placed or a dental crown. Once cured, the tooth should last a very long time. Please keep in mind that our team of doctors will always recommend to their patients to preserve a good oral hygiene.
Our team of dentists in Dubai uses high standard technology which includes imaging to identify root canal complications, ultrasonic instrumentation to eliminate deep-rooted canal fillings and operating microscopes to precisely find, visualize and cover the root canal systems. And before anything else, the dentist or the endodontist will check-up the medical record and the existing prescriptions for every patient, in order to offer a safe treatment.
Who needs endodontic therapy?
Patients with a cracked tooth, untreated deep decay and root openin, where bacteria made enough damage, are subject to endodontic treatments which can be made in our modern dental clinics in Dubai. Even if bacteria destroyed the pulp, there are still chances to repair the injured tooth and restore the denture’s main attributes. Please keep in mind that a tooth left untreated means that the infection can spread and can make the tooth unstable. Instead of thinking how painful this treatment is and why you are afraid to see the dentist, you should consider repairing the problematic tooth if you do not want to affect the healthy teeth surrounding it. And let us remind that each kind of treatment made in our dental clinics in Dubai is performed under local anesthesia without having to worry about the pain.
Ask for dental implants if an endodontic treatment is not suggested
It is true, there are many patients who cannot and won’t see the dentist, even if the pain is unbearable and the tooth or teeth severely damaged. In such cases, the Dubai dentist can suggest a tooth extraction if a root canal treatment won’t solve the problem. Tooth extractions are made only if the doctor considers that the tooth can no longer be saved. Also, a tooth extraction, no matter if it is made with surgical procedures or not, is performed after certain medical investigations including the ones to see if the patient is a good candidate for local anesthesia. Once the problematic tooth has been eliminated, you can ask for dental implants in Dubai, a proper solution to regain the smile and the health of the denture.
