A root canal treatment is a procedure that removes the pulp of a damaged, decayed or infected tooth. The pulp refers to the soft tissues at the center of a tooth that contain nerves, blood vessels and other tissues. When the pulp is damaged or infected, it must be removed and replaced using a special material. This can help preserve the actual structure of the tooth and minimize the risks to adjacent teeth, bones and gum tissue.
Dr. Kakoli offers emergency care for patients who need endodontic treatments. The root canal procedure can offer immediate and dramatic relief from the pain of an infected or severely damaged tooth. It is performed under local anesthesia, and sedation may be available for patients who feel particularly nervous or anxious. The pulp is removed using special tools and replaced with a special medicated material that will keep contaminants out of the root canals.
Once the area has healed and any inflammation has subsided, the tooth will be restored using a porcelain crown or dental filling. The root canal cost can vary based on the tooth involved, the number of treatments and the type of restoration. Complications are uncommon, but retreatment may be necessary for some patients.
