Root Canal Treatment
Root Canal (Endodontic) Treatment is a method of “saving” a tooth after the nerve of a tooth has been injured or infected. Each tooth in the human dentition has a nerve chamber (Root Canal) inside the tooth. This chamber or space is occupied by nerve tissue and blood supply. This nerve tissue and blood supply enters the tooth at the apex (end of root) of the tooth. In clinical cases of Dental or Tooth Trauma (Cracked Tooth) this nerve/blood supply can be severed causing death to the nerve of the tooth. Ultimately, this Dental Trauma can cause abscess formation. In cases of infection caused by deep decay of a tooth, the Root Canal can be violated by bacteria. This causes the Root Canal Chamber to be populated by bacteria. Ultimately, this bacterial infestation of the Root Canal causes tooth death and abscess formation at the end (apex) and eventually around the root of the affected tooth.
Endodontic (Root Canal) Treatment Basics
Once the vitality of a tooth nerve is compromised, the accepted form of treatment is to perform a Root Canal ( Endodontic Treatment). In this treatment, the Root Canal is cleaned of its contents (necrotic or inflamed nerve tissue). The Root Canal is sequentially filed out ( with “Root Canal Files” ) by increasing one calibrated file size at a time. Subsequently, the cleaned canal is sealed. At Ericsson Dental, ENDODONTIC FILES ARE NEVER REUSED. Although costly, We believe Endodontic Treatment should always be performed with new files. Metal files which are reused are at much higher risk of breakage. In addition, Cross contamination risks are also higher with file re-use. Empathetic standards of care and Professionalism are “Job One” at Ericsson Dental.
