Nowadays, it is possible to save teeth through a treatment known as a root canal treatment.

Endodontics is the branch of dentistry that treats conditions concerning the roots of the teeth. During the treatment, known as a root canal treatment, the dental pulp is totally extracted to remove the infection. When tooth decay is so severe that it affects the vitality of the tooth, it can cause pain and discomfort. The root canal treatment helps us to preserve the tooth and maintain its function, with a high level of specialisation and a great deal of experience on the part of our dentist.

What is an endodontics?

What does a root canal treatment consist of?

A root canal treatment, or endodontic treatment, is a clinical dental procedure that involves treating the inside of the tooth, that is, the dental pulp or “nerve” as it is commonly known. 

This treatment aims to maintain the natural dentition, in addition to the bone and gingiva that surrounds it. In this way, we manage to preserve the teeth in order to preserve the aesthetics and functionality of each patient.

After a correct endodontic treatment and restoration, the tooth will behave in the same way as other teeth, both in terms of function and duration, requiring the same hygiene care, prevention and regular check-ups as any other tooth.

Will I feel pain after the procedure?

We encourage you to have regular check-ups on your oral health.

It is true that teeth destined for root canal treatment often suffer from tooth decay, among other conditions, which ends in pulpitis. Pulpitis is an inflammation of the pulp and in these cases the patient may experience a painful process until the tooth is treated. But what are the causes of pulpitis? 

  • Poorly treated cavities.
  • Injuries to your mouth or tooth.
  • A cracked tooth.
  • Dental treatments that have not been carried out properly.

This is why it is important to visit your dentist if you have any discomfort or unusual sensitivity and thus prevent this stage.

Once the endodontist takes over, the treatment is usually practically painless, as nowadays very effective and long-lasting local anaesthetics are used.

How long does endodontics last?

Are teeth more fragile after a root canal treatment?

Teeth that have undergone root canal treatment are not necessarily more fragile than other teeth, as long as they are correctly restored.

In some cases, it may be advisable to protect with suitable reconstructions, inlays and, in some cases, crowns in order to achieve greater durability.

Dental inlays are partial indirect restorations that provide the tooth with protection, morphology, function and a natural look. It is a more conservative treatment than traditional crowns, and is an alternative that we frequently recommend after a root canal treatment.
