What is a Root Canal Treatment?
A root canal treatment is an endodontic treatment used for removing a diseased or infected pulp. The pulp is that hollow part of the tooth that houses blood vessels, nerve tissue, and other cells. The goal of this treatment is to prevent the infection from spreading. Preventing the spread of infection is vital to help the patient avoid tooth loss. Root canal treatment is the safest and most effective way to tackle this situation.

What do I need to know about getting a root canal?
Of all the dental procedures in the world, root canal treatment has about the worst reputation – and wrongfully so. Here are some facts from our root canal specialist about root canal therapy that you should understand:
Root canal treatment does not cause pain
Contrary to your first thought, dental root canal treatment does not cause pain. It is designed to be a solution to pain. This misconception of associating root canal treatment with pain stems from the fact that pulp infection is painful.
Infections don’t disappear
No, the infected pulp didn’t just heal. After a while of having an infection, it is not uncommon that you feel less pain. This is not because the pulp healed itself. On the contrary, the pulp is dying, and the infection is spreading.
There’s no easy way out
There is no way around root canal therapy to treat an infected pulp, not even antibiotics. Antibiotics are only transmitted to affected areas through the blood. In this case, the infection is in the root canal system, which is inaccessible to antibiotics.
Expect to feel sore for a while
It is normal to feel some discomfort for a few days following your root canal therapy. You can also expect to feel some sensitivity while eating. However, our root canal specialist is sure to show you how you can manage this inconvenience.

How do I know if I need root canal treatment?
Dental root canal treatment becomes necessary if you are diagnosed with infected or diseased pulp. When a pulp gets a bacterial infection, it begins to die, and the infection continues to spread. The treatment also becomes necessary if you have a deep cavity, cracked tooth, or severe infection.
Below are some symptoms that suggest that you need a root canal treatment:
- A chipped or cracked tooth
- Teeth decay or discolouration of teeth and gum
- Swollen gums
- Pimples on the gum
- Persistent teeth sensitivity to hot or cold food and drinks
- Pain when chewing or biting
Root Canal Procedure
Root canal procedures are as follows:
This is the first step in root canal treatment. Our root canal specialist will look at the affected area – infected tooth or cavity – and study the extent of the damage. For the most accurate results, we will do a dental x-ray of your teeth.
Extraction of infected pulp
After understanding the spread of the infection, we take out the infected pulp and clean the canal(s). We also reshape and rejuvenate the channel while simultaneously adding anti-inflammatory medicine.
Filling the void
The final step in the root canal treatment is filling the void to prevent new bacteria from entering the canals. In some cases, we may recommend some oral antibiotics to help with this.
Note: The duration of a root canal therapy varies and generally depends on the severity of your condition. The treatment usually takes between one to three sessions but could take additional time depending on your personal needs.
When performing root canal treatments here at Excel Dental Care, we always use precision instruments and aim to preserve as much as possible of your original tooth. We will also clean and disinfect the tooth to heal back to its natural state without pain or discomfort.
