ROOT CANALS

The Importance

Root canals are an important procedure when it comes to having a healthy and beautiful smile. Teeth root canals are a hectic process if you go to the wrong dentist, but Ideal Smiles Dentistry makes it easy, as always. We keep the price of root canals to a minimum as well. Dr. Baluyan, the dentist who performs root canals, is a master in his art. If caries or decay extend deep enough into the tooth the nerve of the tooth becomes infected causing intense pain and discomfort.  

How much are root canals painful? Not as painful as if you skip the process and let it stay in your mouth. Dr. Baluyan can tell you about all the alternatives to root canals, if possible. With Dr. Baluyan performing root canals, teeth are as beautiful and healthy as they can be. Root canal therapy involves removing the pulp or the nerve of the tooth that has become infected to alleviate pain and remove infection. This can be avoided with regular check-ups and cleanings to tackle small cavities early on before they become so large to require root canal treatment.  With today’s technology and powerful anesthetic solutions Root Canals are no longer terrifying and painful experiences like decades ago. Dr. Baluyan will ensure your comfort during and after treatment. Our goal is to save your natural teeth for as long as possible.

THE ROOT CANAL PROCESS

  1. OPEN CANAL – a small section of the tooth is removed to access the the root canals and the pulp within the canals.
  2. CLEAN CANAL – After locating all the canals, remember each tooth has its own unique anatomy and number of canals Dr. Baluyan will use specialized tools and antimicrobial solutions to clean the effected tooth. In some instances antibiotic will be deposited in the canals and temporarily restoration is placed in the tooth.  The tooth is r reopened in 1 week for completion of the root canal to ensure complete removal of the bacteria.
  3. FILL CANAL – The canal is then filled with an inert, natural cone referred as Gutta-percha in order to eliminate recontamination or infection of the root of the tooth.
  4. CLOSE CANAL – The tooth will then be sealed with a permanent restoration such as Onlay/Inlay or crown to prevent any infection or unwanted debris from entering the root canal. Depending on the amount of tooth structure remaining Dr. Baluyan will be able to assess best restoration type in order to prolong longevity of the tooth.
