Understanding Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy removes the infected pulp within a tooth, alleviates pain, and preserves the tooth’s natural structure. It’s a highly effective method in preventing tooth extraction, which can often lead to further complications and costs. Choosing root canal treatment gives your natural tooth a second chance at health and functionality.

At Smile n Shine, root canal therapy is not just about treatment – it’s about ensuring a positive, compassionate, and patient-centric experience.

Post-Treatment Care and Recovery

After your root canal treatment, following our post-treatment care instructions is essential. We provide comprehensive guidance on oral hygiene practices and temporary adjustments, if required, to ensure a smooth recovery. After undergoing a root canal treatment, it’s crucial to follow these post-treatment care instructions to ensure a smooth and speedy recovery:

  • Avoid eating until the numbness in your mouth wears off to prevent biting your cheek or tongue.
    Try to chew on the opposite side of the treated tooth to avoid any discomfort.
  • Maintain a soft food diet for a few days after the treatment. Gradually reintroduce harder foods into your diet.
  • Ensure proper oral hygiene by brushing and flossing regularly. But be gentle around the treated area.
  • Use an over-the-counter pain reliever if you experience mild discomfort or swelling. If the pain persists, don’t hesitate to contact us.
  • Keep up with your regular dental check-ups so we can monitor the treated tooth.
  • Contact us immediately if you experience severe pain or swelling or if your bite feels uneven.
Root canal treatment is necessary in following conditions :
  • Dental decay that is deep enough to damage the tooth pulp tissue.
  • Fractured teeth showing symptoms
  • Chipped teeth which exposes pulp tissue
  • Trauma to teeth
  • Prolonged dental sensitivity
  • Severe gum infection
No, you will be given local anaesthesia before starting the treatment. As the area will be numb, you won’t feel any pain.
In cases of severe destruction of tooth structure it is important to reinforce it by placing a dental crown. A compromised tooth structure can not bear the load of chewing forces on its own. We provide strength by placing a crown. At times, a front tooth may be fractured requiring root canal treatment. In this, a dental crown is placed to regain aesthetics
Maintenance efforts forms the basis of long lasting results
  • Brush your teeth two times a day and floss once a day
  • Gargle with water after every meal.
  • Brush and keep the area around the root canal treated tooth to avoid food accumulation.
  • Avoid eating sticky foods and hard substances with the root canal treated tooth.
  • Visit your dentist regularly every 6 months for a routine dental check up.
The results of root canal therapy can last a lifetime if proper oral hygiene is maintained and regular dental check-ups are followed.

In some cases, alternatives to root canal treatment may include tooth extraction or no treatment at all. However, it’s essential to consult with a dentist to determine the best course of action based on your specific dental condition.
