Root Canal Treatment
Root Canal Dentist in Dubai
Are you experiencing dental pain and sensitivity?
A root canal treatment may be required if the pulp inside the tooth has been damaged, infected or irritated.
Patients may experience dental sensitivity or discomfort when a tooth is affected by such decay. Symptoms may include swelling of the gum, difficulty chewing or swallowing, and increased sensitivity and pain.
A root canal treatment reduces the risk of a dental abscess forming in such cases and can prevent tooth loss.
When performing the root canal treatment, your dentist will remove any pulp which has been irreversibly damaged and clean the inside of the tooth to remove any infection. In some cases, the root canal treatment may also involve removing the nerve from the inside of the tooth, but this will not affect the day-to-day functioning of the teeth.
Following this, the inside of the tooth will be cleaned and sealed. Depending on the level of decay, the tooth may be sealed by a filling or a crown following the initial root canal treatment. Your dentist will carry out X-rays prior to commencing treatment to confirm how much of the tooth is damaged.
Although many patients are fearful of root canal treatment, it’s not something you need to worry about. We use modern technology that makes the root canal treatment virtually painless.
