A root canal is the nerve and blood supply to your tooth. You might have heard it called ‘the pulp’. The root canal may become damaged, either through injury or from tooth decay, causing the tooth to darken as the nerve dies. Root canal problems may be pain-free to begin with but if the root canal becomes infected, it can lead to abscesses and inflammation. Root canal treatment is essential to prevent the infection from spreading. An endodontist is a dentist who specializes in carrying out the procedures needed to treat patients who need root canal treatments. While the prospect of root canal treatment can sound a little daunting, our friendly team will make sure you’re cared for and at ease every step of the way. Once you know more about the treatment, you’ll find there’s nothing to worry about!
At Drs. Nicolas & Asp, our team of specialist endodontists work to create the leading root canal treatment centers in Dubai for our patients. Root canal treatment aims to remove and clean away any infection from your root canal, before filling the area to avoid future infections. It is a highly skilled procedure that must be carried out by trained endodontists in order to thoroughly treat the root canal. Our Dubai dental centers are lucky enough to have access to modern instruments and be able to make use of the latest advances in technology to give patients outstanding care and successful treatment. Nowadays, root canal treatments have more than a 92% success rate and can mostly be completed in a couple of sessions – except in cases of extreme infection. In most cases the treatment is completely painless and comfortable for the patient. A local anaesthetic agent will be used and the experience is similar to having a standard filling.
Following root canal treatment, your tooth should be infection-free, although in rare cases it may return. In these cases, we can repeat your treatment. Unlike in the past, your tooth is unlikely to suffer discoloration with the modern techniques our endodontists employ. If your tooth is still discolored following your root canal treatment, our team can discuss treatment options for this and look into the possibility of teeth whitening procedures. Your tooth should be cared for in the same way as your other teeth, with regular brushing and avoidance of sugary foods and drink. Teeth that have undergone root canal treatment can be more brittle and prone to chipping so you might need to take extra care. Your endodontist may fit a crown to give it some extra support and protection.
Root canal treatments are very straightforward and it generally pays to have the treatment carried out as soon as possible if it is required. This will prevent the infection from spreading and causing possible further damage.
