We have put together the most comprehensive and painless root canal system available today! At Baytown Dental Center we are pleased to offer the latest technology and techniques in therapeutic root treatment - or root canal therapy (RCT). RCT is a wonderful treatment option than can be used to dramatically increase the life-span of an otherwise infected tooth. This system consists of three distinct components that are absolutely vital to the long-term success of root canals. Let's break them down:
1. Cleaning and Shaping: We are pleased to inform our patients we use the Wave-One Reciprocating system; the latest and most advanced rotary file system on the market today. The Wave-One has been clinically proven to be more effective at cleaning and disinfecting than the old non-reciprocating file systems.
2. Irrigating and Disinfecting: Removing an infection with a file is one thing, completely eliminating the bacteria through anti-bacterial solutions is a whole different story. Where most root canal's are done with only one irrigating solution; Baytown Dental Center is pleased to inform our patients that we use three different irrigation and disinfection solutions. The first solution helps kill all of the infected tissue. The second solution aids in removing the "smear" layer or any dead bacteria that may have been smeared along the walls of the tooth. The third solution leaves us with a "squeaky clean" tooth since it insures that 99.99% of the bacteria has been neutralized and flushed out of the tooth.
3. Natural Canal Filling: Once we are done cleaning, shaping and disinfecting the canal we want to fill the complex root structure to insure nothing else gets in. The filling material we use is a natural plant based material which has been clinically proven to be bio-compatible with the human body. The Gutta- Core filling material is unique due to its cross-linking technology which allows us to provide a dense 3D fill of the intricate canal system. gutta-core
Endodontics is the dental specialty that deals with the nerves of the teeth. Root canals are probably the most notorious procedure in dentistry and the most common procedure relating to endodontics. When a tooth becomes infected it is usually related to the nerves in the root of the tooth. The infected nerves need to be removed. If left untreated an infection can turn into an abscess, which is a much more serious problem that includes bone loss in the jaw.
The area around the tooth is numbed with a local anesthetic to start the procedure. The dentist will then drill down into the tooth to create an opening into the canal. They will then be able to remove infected tissue and clean the canal. After the infection has been removed, the space if filled with a sealant called gutta percha. It is highly recommended that a tooth that has undergone a root canal is fitted with a crown. This will improve the appearance of the tooth, and will also make it much more likely that the root canal is successful.
"Root canal" has become a scary term for dental patients to hear, but the benefits of the procedure and advances in dental technology have made it much less "scary". Local anesthetics and proper pain medication allow the procedure to be performed with little to no pain in most cases. There may be some soreness following the procedure, but that is normal for most dental procedures. Over the counter painkillers are usually enough to relieve any pain afterwards, but your dentist may prescribe medication. The procedure will also relieve you from pain caused by the infection allowing you to enjoy all the foods you love without any pain from heat, cold, or biting too hard. If you are experiencing pain consult your dentist today.
