What is root canal treatment?

"Endo" is the Greek word for "inside" and "odont" is Greek for "tooth." Endodontic treatment treats the inside of the tooth.

Why would I need an root canal treatment?

Endodontic treatment is necessary when the pulp, the soft tissue inside the root canal, becomes inflamed or infected. The inflammation or infection can have a variety of causes: deep decay, repeated dental procedures on the tooth, or a crack or chip in the tooth. In addition, an injury to a tooth may cause pulp damage even if the tooth has no visible chips or cracks. If pulp inflammation or infection is left untreated, it can cause pain or lead to an abscess.

Recurrent Maxillary Odontogenic Sinusitis caused by infected Upper Posterior teeth or an improperly done Root Canal Treatment should not be taken lightly and endodontic treatment should only be considered by a patient if the dentist has all the necessary qualifications - We have!!.

Root Canal And Sinus Pain

Dental abscesses, if left untreated, can be very serious. In the days prior to modern surgery and antibiotics, a common cause of death was a dental abscess. An untreated abscess on the upper front tooth would often lead to a brain abscess that would prove fatal. Such a brain infection is known as cavernous sinus thrombosis.

Sinuses are located behind the bones of the upper face. They are air-filled spaces at the rear of the forehead, nose and cheeks and between the eyes. Odontogenic Sinusitis is when fluid blocks the sinuses, and entrapped bacteria infect the lining, inflaming the sinuses.

Pain In The Upper Teeth

Approximately 40 percent of Odontogenic Sinusitis and the attendant pain, originates from a dental source.

A dental abscess occurs as a result of decayed dental pulp. The dental pulp having died in the root canal builds up pressure and seeks release. It finds an outlet through an abscess that forms on the gum near the root of the infected tooth. The condition gives rise to acute pain and the infection can radiate to the sinuses. This condition is a fairly advanced stage of pulp decay and the only recourse might be a root canal procedure.

The fear of pain from a Root Canal treatment is largely undeserved. Root canal treatment overwhelmingly relieves more pain than it inflicts. Timely root canal treatment is relatively painless, averts unnecessary pain of infection, and has a greater chance of success than if the infection is allowed to progress beyond the initial stages.

We're using hi-tech and latest Endodontic Equipment for Root Canal Treatment!

The Endovac apical negative pressure irrigation system presents a unique and safe new way to irrigate during root canal treatments. Unlike positive pressure system that draws fluid apically by way of vacuum suction. Because the system utilizes negative pressure irrigation, solutions are suctioned from the pulp chamber, apically, to the apical termination and then away into the office Hi-Vac System. Negative pressure means that irrigants are never forced through the apical foramen, virtually eliminating any risk of an irrigation accident.
