Root canal procedure

It involves removing the diseased nerve tissue, halting the spread of infection and restoring the healthy portion of the tooth. In fact, it is designed to save a problem tooth; before the procedure was developed and gained acceptance, the only alternative for treating a diseased tooth was extraction. Laser, Oral, gas and IV sedation available on all root canals.Many tooth problems involve infections that spread to the nerve called pulp, which is the inner chamber of the tooth containing blood vessels, nerves and other tissues. When the infection becomes worse, it can begin affecting the jaw bone.root canal procedure

Root canals are tiny passageways that branch off from beneath the top of the tooth, coursing their way vertically downward, until they reach the tip of the root.

An infected inner tooth brings a host of problems including pain and sensitivity as the first indications of a problem.  However, inside a spreading infection can cause small pockets of pus to develop, which can lead to an abscess.


Root Canal Recovery

Recovery is mostly successful. First a small acess hole is made into the tooth and the infection is removed. Medication is placed into infected canal(s) to treat the bacterial infection and help possibly to restore the bone loss from the bacteria eating away the bone. Then, the dentist filled the acess hole with a temporary filling. If things keep going well in the next few weeks following the procedure, all is needed is a permanent crown to save the tooth. 

The recevery time is about one to two days taking 600 mg ibuprofen every 6-8 hours and antibiotic for 5-7 days or as suggested by your dentist The recovery related to a root canal goes well once the procedure is completed and the infection is removed.

Why would I need a root canal procedure?

Root canal treatment is necessary when the nerve, the soft tissue inside the root canal, becomes inflamed or infected. The inflammation or infection can have a variety of causes: deep cavity, repeated dental procedures on the tooth, or a crack or chip in the tooth. In addition, an injury to a tooth may cause nerve damage even if the tooth has no visible chips or cracks. If nerve inflammation or infection is left untreated, it can cause pain or lead to an abscess.

Laser Assisted Root Canal

We are a certified laser root canal provider in Fort Lauderdale.

The laser assisted root canal treatment combines classic instrumentation of the canal system with the anti-microbial and bio-stimulatory effects of the laser.laser root canal

The Biolase Waterlase Dental Laser utilizes hydrokinetic energy for the elimination of organic debris and bacteria that lie within the confines of the root canal system.  This combination of heat, light, and energized water produces atomized water particles that remove the smear layer and penetrate deep into the wall of the canals.  Studies have shown that the Biolase Waterlase Dental Laser penetrates ten times deeper into the wall of the canals than does more conventional cleansing.  Thus, the use of the laser for root canals allows us to thoroughly cleanse the root canal and make it less antigenic and biocompatible in certain intances.

A recent study published in the jurnal of the American Dental Association in August, 2014 found that: laser (Er:YAG) activation of five percent NAOCl and seventeen percent was more effective than conversional irrigation and preventing new bacterial growth ex vivo.
