ROOT CANAL IN PENSACOLA

The Root Canal Therapy is also called Endodontic Therapy in medical terms. This is a dental procedure of removing infected pulp. this makes your teeth hollow which is further filled by a dental material to deal it. The pulp is a group of connective tissues present in the center of your tooth under the crown. If in case infected pulp is removed by the root canal procedure, it will increase the bacteria build up which causes many dental problems.

What is dental Pulp?

A Pulp is a group of tissues found in the innermost part of your tooth. When the outer hard part of our teeth which we also called crown gets erodes away and leave tiny holes behind. This exposed the dental pulp to microbes present in the mouth, they start infecting the healthy pulp. Patients experience serve pain with sore gums or in some extreme cases they saw blood while eating or doing brush. Root canal therapy may take more than one visit to complete the procedure.

The Pulp acts as a protective alarm in your mouth. Whenever you try to crush hard things with your teeth, you experience pain this due to the presence of pulp in your teeth. Which resists you from damaging your teeth by putting excessive pressure on them. In dental studies, Researchers have found that teeth with pulp show better resistance to bacterial invasion than teeth without it.

REASONS OF PUPL INFECTION AND HOW TO PREVENT IT?

Tooth cracks, Fracture, Accidental Tooth Damage, Tooth Decay, all are responsible for dental pulp infection. In all these conditions the upper protective layer called enamel gets destroyed which exposed the center part of a tooth to microbes present in the mouth.

These microbes damage the pulp ( connective nerves) and continuously causing further damages until the infected piece of tissues gets removed permanently. We have the best dental doctors with years of experience in root canal therapy.

A root canal is a procedure, through which a dental doctor removes the destroyed tissues and seal the tooth chamber with dental material to prevent more damages. The inner part of the tooth must be cleaned well before filling with sealing substance

WHAT WE DO IN ROOT CANAL THERAPY IN OUR CLINICS AT PENSACOLA, FL

The first part of the root canal therapy is diagnostics. In this phase, we diagnose the depth of problem by taking multiple X-rays of an infected tooth. When we collect all data then discuss different treatment options with our patients, also help them to choose which is best for them. All reports are discussed briefly, some patients ask us to give them some time for thinking while others make instant decisions. Next, we give them a fixed date of surgery (any date suitable for them) as well as we talk about all the expenses and recovery time. After removing infected tissues our doctors use Gutta-Percha (a filling material) to fill the cleaned-out root canal along with the sealing cement.
