Root Canal

Root Canal Treatment

An abscessed (infected) tooth caused by tooth decay.

An opening is made through the crown of the tooth into the pulp chamber.

The pulp is removed, and the root canals are cleaned, enlarged and shaped.

The root canals are filled.

A metal Post may be placed in the root canal for structural support.

The crown of the tooth is restored.

 

Cavity

Common Sites of Decay

Tooth Decay

Decay often beings in hard-to-clean areas. Left untreated, a small cavity becomes larger. Decay spreads beneath the enamel to the dentin, destroying more tooth structure. Once decay enters the pulp, an abscess may occur. The tooth will need endodontic treatment or may need to be extracted.

Marginal Decay

  • Recurrent decay around restoration
  • Marginal leakage under restoration

Baby Bottle Tooth Decay

Put only water in a bedtime or naptime bottle.

Never use a nursing bottle filled with sweet liquid (including milk and fruit juice) as a pacifier.

Never dip your infant’s pacifier in honey, syrup or sugar.

After each feeding, wipe your infant’s gums and teeth with a clean, damp washcloth or gauze pad.

As soon as the first tooth appears, brush your child’s teeth daily with a child size toothbrush.

Make sure your child gets the fluoride needed for decay-resistant teeth.

Take your child to see your dentist by the first birthday.
