Why Should You Need to Check up for Root Canal Treatment in Chester Springs?

Root canal treatment is also referred to as an endodontic treatment. Some teeth can be salvaged if one undergoes this line of procedure. At times people are in a hurry to do away with broken, chipped or damaged teeth. However, what they do not realize is that their tooth or teeth can be restored back to almost its original form with root canal therapy.

What does root canal treatment entail?

Under the enamel or the outermost layer of the tooth and dentin, the layer under it is dental pulp. This is a soft mass of tissues, nerves, and blood. At times, this gets infected. With root canal treatment, one can come through the enamel and dentin into this pulp area. The pulp is removed, and then the chamber here is cleaned up so that no trace of infection remains. After this, the chamber is filled up with a substance like a gutta percha. Then a dental crown is placed to seal the area so that the gutta percha has a lining around it. Your old tooth or teeth are good as new with this treatment.

Do not get damaged teeth removed if they can be salvaged

Tooth replacement is not a simple process. One can get a set of temporary or permanent dentures. Or to have a more permanent kind of setting, a patient can even opt for dental implants. However, a root canal will restore back your chipped, damaged or infected teeth without having to remove them.

After getting a root canal procedure done, one can get back to chewing and eating activities like what a patient did before the tooth or teeth got spoiled. The force with which one used to bite becomes almost the same as before. The appearance of the tooth or teeth too is almost pretty much like natural and what it was before the damage occurred.

However, a root canal can be a bit painful line of treatment. Also, it may involve several trips to the dentist. At times, the treatment can fail as well. In the event the root canal treatment fails twice or thrice on the same tooth, one should opt for tooth removal. Then the next best option is a set of dentures or dental implants.

Our Happy Customers

"Always an excellent experience. I use to hate going to the dentist but now I actually look forward to going. He is the best and thank God he practices in the Bronx. My family and I love going to him.Dr. Bhadresh Makani was very considerate when I went in for some fillings. He made sure I knew exactly what he was talking about, even showed me pictures of my cavities and explaining the filling. I shared that I was reluctant towards being numbed, and he was so kind. He worked with me in letting me tell him if I felt sensitivity, and only then would he numb me. When he did, I didn't even feel the needle which was much appreciated! He was gentle and efficient. It was also probably one of the quickest fillings I've had done, but I knew it was very well done. I am happy to have gone to Dr. Bhadresh Makani's office for my dental needs."

"It was such a pleasure visiting Eagle Family Smiles. Elise did a superb job with my dental cleaning, taking her time and being very gentle and thorough. It was great seeing the friendly and familiar faces of the staff as well as meeting Dr. Makani and the Office Manager Swatti. Dr. Makani was very professional but friendly and conservative in his treatment recommendations. I would highly recommend this office."
