Root Canal Therapy (Endodontics)

Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic therapy, is required when the nerve of the tooth begins to die or becomes infected after it dies. A root canal is a procedure designed to remove the build-up of bacteria that is inflaming the dental pulp (where nerves, connective tissues, and blood vessels reside) and the surrounding nerve chamber. Without root canal treatment, the risk of tooth loss is significantly increased. In addition, these types of serious infections can greatly magnify the risks to oneโ€™s general health, potentially leading to heart attack, stroke, and other conditions that could be life-threatening. Root canal therapy can be a vital step toward reducing these risks and restoring the tooth to proper health.

How a Root Canal Can Help?

Root canals are an effective treatment with a very high success rate. Some of the common indicators that a root canal may be needed are:
  • Unprompted throbbing or pain

  • Pain while chewing, eating, or biting

  • Sensitivity or tenderness to hot or cold

  • Swelling or tenderness near an infected tooth

  • Severe breaks, chips, or injuries to tooth

Extractions And Wisdom Teeth Removal

Tooth extractions are usually done to finally remove a tooth that has been suffering from extensive damage and decay. It is usually the last resort--when the tooth cannot be saved anymore. Another kind of tooth extraction is the removal of the tooth to prevent it from causing further damage.

Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Wisdom tooth extraction is the removal of the wisdom teeth (third molars located at the top and bottom of the back of the mouth) when they are hidden under the gums and canโ€™t erupt through the surface or when the area around the wisdom teeth have become painful and inflamed. Extraction is needed under these circumstances because if not done immediately, it can cause further damage to your jaw and to the rest of your teeth.

What are the benefits of wisdom tooth extraction?

  • It can greatly prevent further damage to nearby teeth

  • It can stop alignment issues from happening because of crowded mouth

  • It can decrease the risk of oral disease and inflammation

  • It can ease facial pain and discomfort

  • It can prevent cysts, tumours, and jaw damage from happening
