Happy Customers' Feedback for Our
Root Canal Treatment

I had a route canal done here and they were so nice and calm. When I was nervous they explained my options then when they did the route canal explained everything that they were doing and were really attentive. It was a lot less stressful that the cavity I got done at a different dentist office. I would highly recommend. The staff is kind and attentive and I really trust the dentists.

FAQs About
Root Canal

A root canal is a dental procedure that treats the inside of the tooth. It’s needed when the tooth’s pulp, which contains nerves and blood vessels, becomes inflamed or infected. The procedure involves removing the infected pulp, cleaning and disinfecting the inside of the tooth, and then filling and sealing it.

While root canals have a reputation for being painful, modern techniques and anesthesia make the procedure no more uncomfortable than getting a filling. Any pain after the procedure can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.

A root canal procedure typically takes between 60 and 90 minutes, but the exact time will depend on the complexity of the tooth and the extent of the infection.

The goal of a root canal is to save the tooth by removing the infection. After the procedure, the tooth remains in place, but it’s dead because the nerve tissue has been removed. The tooth can continue to function normally for many years with proper care.

If a tooth is severely damaged and cannot be saved with a root canal, extraction may be necessary. The extracted tooth can then be replaced with a dental implant, bridge, or denture.

An endodontist is a dentist who specializes in treating diseases and injuries of the dental pulp or the inside of the tooth. They perform root canals and other procedures to treat conditions that affect the inside of the tooth.

Most teeth can be treated endodontically. However, some teeth, such as those with complex root structures or severe damage, may be more difficult to treat.

Yes, pregnant women can safely have a root canal. However, for comfort and to avoid stress on the fetus, some dentists recommend postponing non-emergency dental work until after the first trimester.

RCT A root canal treatment is an important dental procedure to help mitigate tooth pain and a necessary step to save critically damaged teeth.  Our first-class dental professionals at Prime Dentistry will assess the oral health of our Philadelphia patients and determine the best course of action for a particular dental issue. Root Canal Treatment may be rightfully advised for teeth with deep decay, decay beneath crowns involving the nerve, or repeated dental procedures on a select, chipped, or cracked tooth and injured tooth

What is a Root Canal Treatment?

The tooth is a three-layered structure, containing the innermost soft tissue, pulp enclosed inside two hard tissues – the dentin and the enamel. Root Canal Treatment (RCT), also popularly known as Endodontic treatment is a procedure done at Prime Dentistry that necessitates the removal of the pulp that has been infected due to disease or trauma.  Our Root Canal Dentists who eliminate the bacteria from the infected root canal, prevent reinfection of the tooth, and save the natural tooth instead of having it extracted. As a last-ditch effort to salvage full function in a damaged tooth, Root Canal Treatments can help restore form and function to your teeth.  Tooth Extraction

Why does one need to undergo Root Canal Treatment in Philadelphia?

Root Canal Treatment is done to curb the spread of the infection to other parts of the neighboring structures. The infection could be brought about due to a cracked or broken tooth, deep decay, gum diseases, or even possibly due to repeated dental treatment on a particular tooth.  We recommend our Philadelphia patients to undergo Root Canal Treatment (if deemed fit) as it:
  • Stops the infection from spreading and will save the tooth from extraction
  • Prevents reinfection of the tooth due to aggravating infection
  • Relieves pain and discomfort caused by inflammation
  • Saves the tooth structure and restores its health and function

What would happen if you do not undergo Root Canal Treatment?

There are a number of possibilities that could commence if you have been recommended Root Canal Treatment but choose not to undergo the procedure.
  • Signs for Root Canal are readily identifiable as they cause immense pain and discomfort. However, if you lose sensation to your tooth, it does not mean that the infection has healed. Quite contrarily, this could indicate that the nerves inside the tooth have all died and the infection has grown manifolds.
  • The bacteria from the infection can enter into the tissues of the gums and jaw. Here it could cause a pus-filled abscess or worse, could end up in the bloodstream and lead to serious systemic conditions like heart disease and stroke.
How is Root Canal Treatment performed? At Prime Dentistry, our team of dental professionals begins by taking a thorough examination of your mouth and general health. Next, our specialized dental team will proceed to:
  • An X-ray of the tooth is taken to determine the extent of the infection.
  • a local anesthetic is administered before starting the treatment. 
  • A cavity is prepared and the infected material and any previous filling are removed. A proper approach to the pulp is established.
  • The root canal is then disinfected and reshaped. Once the infected pulp is completely cleared out, the canals are properly shaped and cleaned.
  • These disinfected canals are sealed and filled with an inert rubber-like material known as Gutta Percha.
  • Once the Gutta-Percha is placed, the tooth cavity is restored and a cap or crown is cemented onto the tooth to further protect it.
What are some post-surgical care instructions? Most RCT cases can be completed in a single day. That being said, you’ll be asked to return for the fitting of a dental crown – a crucial step that should not be avoided as the artificial crown helps contain the infection and give the tooth structural integrity and protection. This helps you eat and chew with ease. Our Endodontist will recommend you to follow certain instructions after the RCT:
  • Do not put pressure on the tooth especially if you have not yet received the crown
  • Avoid hard and crunchy foods until the final restoration
  • Be careful while brushing 
  • Get a dental crown as soon as possible 
  • Call  Prime Dentistry if you experience any pain or discomfort, post surgery
Can I avoid getting a root canal treatment? A root canal therapy is a procedure used to remedy severely damaged, infected, or decayed teeth. The procedure is typically recommended to individuals who have suffered significant damage to the living tissues of the tooth as a last resort effort to save the tooth. However,  it is possible to avoid the need of root canal treatment up to a certain extent.  The simplest way for you to avoid an RCT is by following a strict dental hygiene routine along with frequent dental visits and x-rays. Routine dental checkups help detect cavities earlier, thus preventing the progression of dental disease. In fact, small cavities can be treated with routine tooth-colored fillings that also help save as much tooth matter as possible.  It is wise to remember, however, that small cavities do not manifest any major symptoms and can be easily overlooked when viewed by the naked eye. Sometimes, these minute cavities may invade the pulp tissue without you knowing! In such cases, look out for throbbing spontaneous pain that lingers – a surefire sign of infection advancement into the pulp. If you’re experiencing pain that does not tend to go away, you are in dire need for a root canal evaluation. At Prime Dentistry, we recommend you come in regularly (at least every six months) to be certain that you do not have to go through dental pain, and the troubles of getting root canal treatment.
