Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment is a viable alternative to tooth extraction, especially when problems and pain reach the nerves in the root canal, causing inflammation. The procedure involves removing the nerve and treating the underlying issue. Technological advancements have significantly improved the process and reduced the amount of pain associated with it.

What is the root canal ?

The root canal is a space located in the center of a tooth or molar that is submerged in the gums and jaws. It contains nerves, blood vessels, and tissues that extend to the end of the root. The number of canals within the root canal system can vary, with some teeth having a single canal (such as front teeth) and others having multiple canals (such as back molars).

Causes of nerve inflammation

Nerve inflammation in teeth is often discovered when a patient experiences pain in response to hot or cold temperatures, or when swelling occurs. It may also be detected during an X-ray examination for treatment, or for other complaints such as the presence of an abscess under the tooth. Typically, these cases result from deep decay in the tooth’s wall, the presence of a large old filling or crown, or a traumatic injury to the tooth.

Some causes of nerve inflammation in teeth include:

  1. Neglected or untreated tooth decay that penetrates the layers of the tooth until it reaches the nerve.
  2. Exposing the nerve to various dental procedures.
  3. Traumatic injury, collision, or crack in the tooth that leads to nerve inflammation.

How to recognize nerve inflammation ?

Nerve inflammation can be recognized when a person experiences pain while eating or applying pressure to the tooth, or when drinking hot or cold beverages. The pain may feel like an electric shock in the tooth, which are indicators of nerve inflammation. Prompt intervention and treatment of the nerve are necessary to avoid further damage and alleviate discomfort.

Root canal treatment and nerve extraction

Root canal treatment is often considered the last resort for treating a damaged tooth. It involves removing the nerve from inside the tooth to preserve it, rather than extracting the tooth entirely. If root canal treatment is not performed, the alternative is to extract the tooth, and in that case, the nerve will be removed, leaving the tooth without sensation. However, with root canal treatment, there is no need for extraction, and the tooth can be saved without any loss of sensation.

Root canal treatment at Alkharashy Center

The availability of modern equipment, such as microscopes and CT scans, has made root canal treatment at Alkharashy Center much easier. In fact, the majority of cases can be completed in a single session, which typically takes 45 minutes to an hour.

Steps of root canal treatment

  1. Numbing the affected area using a needle with a numbing gel or cream.
  2. Removing the underlying cause or problem that is putting pressure on the nerve canal, such as deep decay or an old filling.
  3. Removing the nerve.
  4. Cleaning the area.
  5. Placing a permanent filling designed for root canal treatment.
  6. Placing a permanent filling on top of the tooth.
  7. Making a crown to protect the tooth from the outside.

Techniques and tools for root canal treatment

The tools used in root canal treatment have evolved significantly, improving in quality and flexibility, making the process easier and more efficient for dentists and less painful for patients. The cleaning process before filling has also been reduced in duration. Advanced microscope technology is now being used, making it easier to locate the nerve canal and facilitating its treatment.

Does sensation disappear after nerve removal ?

The nerves inside the root canal are responsible for providing major nutrition to the tooth. When the nerve is removed, a significant amount of nutrition decreases, but not all of it disappears. Sensation in the tooth will remain, but a change in tooth color may occur over time due to the decrease in nutrition. For front teeth, options such as veneers or whitening can be considered, while for other teeth, a crown may be necessary.

Reason for feeling pain even after nerve removal

Experiencing pain in the tooth after root canal treatment may indicate that there is a nerve canal that has not been completely removed. This can be detected through a CT scan of the tooth. The use of a microscope greatly facilitates the process of reopening the tooth and identifying the nerve canal. Once the canal is properly cleaned and treated, the pain should disappear completely.

What are the preventive measures after root canal treatment ?

Most cases of root canal treatment require the placement of a crown on the treated tooth to protect it from fractures that may occur due to use, as a result of the changes that occur in the tooth after root canal treatment. Therefore, at Alkharashy Center, after the patient completes root canal treatment, we refer them to our crown clinic, to ensure they receive the best possible service.

The necessity of crowning teeth after root canal treatment

After root canal treatment, the tooth may have lost a significant part of its vitality, and the remaining walls of the tooth may become very fragile, especially if the root cause of the problem was a large cavity or filling. In such cases, it is necessary to cover the tooth with a crown to protect it from future fractures and to prolong its lifespan as much as possible.
