Root Canal Therapy
Root canals are needed when the pulp in a tooth is infected or inflamed, which can happen because of extreme tooth decay, because of a crack in the tooth, or because of some sort of trauma to it. Symptoms of infection include sever throbbing pain in the tooth or more generalized pain around the head and neck. If the condition isn’t treated quickly, the infection can damage the jaw and spread to other teeth.
Root canals are outpatient procedures done in OC Smile Dental & Orthodontics’ offices under local anesthesia. We will gently remove the decayed pulp, disinfect the area, and fill the cavity with a specialized putty. Often, we will finish the procedure by putting a crown on the tooth to seal and protect it.
OC Smile Dental & Orthodontics uses modern microsurgery equipment that allows us to see incredible detail and work with precision when performing root canals, dental implants, and other procedures. In medicine, microsurgery is basically any sort of surgery that requires a microscope, and today’s Dental Operating Microscopes are a large advancement over precious technologies. Using fiber optic lighting, we can magnify surgical areas up to 20 times normal views. More traditional magnification instruments can only magnify up to 6 times normal vision, and Dental Operating Microscopes are more versatile and easier for us to use.
For our patients, this technology means we can be more precise and sparing with our incisions. That means less pain, swelling, and bleeding. Treatment is faster, outcomes are better, and recovery is quicker. At OC Smile, we embrace new technologies for the comfort of our patients.
