Root Canal Therapy

Best Root Canal Treatment in Hayward, CA

What is Root Canal Treatment?

Root canal treatment is an effective and safe treatment to save the patient’s natural teeth. Endodontic services aim to remove the inflamed or diseased pulp from the crown and roots of the tooth. After cleaning the decayed soft pulp tissues, the small tubular extensions coming off the main canals are reshaped, filled and sealed with a temporary or permanent filling to prevent further infection. Root canal treatment can relieve your pain and help save your tooth.  Root canal treatment preserves your natural tooth that has suffered severe damage or infection. Endodontists are finding long-term success with root canal therapy. Some people develop unnecessary fear and anxiety that root canal treatments can cause pain or develop other health problems. Root canal technology is highly advanced, and with modern anesthetics the dental procedure is painless. The tooth and the surrounding area are numbed to prevent the sensation of pain, making the procedure more like a filling placement process. We are proud to offer our patients the convenience of having an Endodontist (Root Canals) on our dental team.

Signs of needing Root Canal Treatment

Root Canal Treatment is necessary if you have:

  • Inflamed or infected tooth pulp due to deep decay

  • Tooth sensitivity to heat or cold temperatures

  • Severe tooth pain upon biting or putting pressure on the tooth nerve

  • Discoloration or darkening due to crack or chip in the tooth

  • Swollen or tender lymph nodes in the nearby gums

  • Repeated dental procedures on the tooth

The infected pulp of the tooth cause pain or lead to an abscess. The root canal will not heal on its own without proper root canal treatment. Untreated pulp inflammation or infection inside the tooth doesn’t drain. Some of the infection can be toxic and dangerous. It can lead to severe consequences and may even endanger your life. The bacterial infection can spread to your jaw bone and then into the surrounding tissues. The risk of spreading infection further increases if you have a weakened immune system. The root canal therapy will remove and replace the infected pulp with synthetic biomaterials, as almost all the tooth’s nerve supply and blood vessels are removed. Root canal-treated teeth don’t cause or contribute to any systemic disease.

Step-by-Step Endodontic Procedure

Root canal procedure involves the following steps:

  • Examination & X-rays of the tooth

  • Administer local anesthesia

  • Placement of Dental Dam over the area to isolate the tooth

  • The tooth is cleaned and free of saliva

  • An opening is made right through the dental crown

  • Clean the tissues inside the pulp chamber and root canals thoroughly

  • Reshape the canal for filling

  • Tooth filling with a biocompatible material to ensure complete sealing of the root canals

  • A temporary filling is placed to close the opening on the teeth

  • After a recovery period, crown or other restoration is placed on the tooth
