The advancements in dentistry have created many changes for dental professionals and patients alike, from cosmetic dental procedures to restorative treatments. Modern techniques for sanitary procedures and pain management have lessened most of the trauma and anxiety to negligible levels. Thus, there’s no reason to be afraid with the procedure, especially if it means saving your tooth from extraction.
The Goal of Root Canal Treatment
The root canal treatment consists of removal of infected pulp from the anterior of the tooth, cleaning and reshaping of the root canal space, filling the space with a permanent, inert material, and placement of a permanent dental crown to the top of the tooth.
The main goal of this procedure is to stop the infection while allowing the biological tooth to remain in place. The tooth that requires treatment has lost a large portion of its structure. Thus, after the treatment, the tooth dries out internally as it lacks nerves and blood vessels. This causes the tooth to become more brittle and susceptible to fracturing. A dental crown is used to fortify the physical strength of the tooth.
Your Mernda dentist understands that root canal therapy or crown replacement is a dental procedure not loved by many patients; however, both treatments have been improved and streamlined to lessen as much as possible the procedure’s amount of time and discomfort.
Pre-existing Crown and Root Canal Therapy
Several studies have shown that the chances of needing root canal treatment on a tooth with a pre-existing dental crown are not an uncommon occurrence. Whatever causes the teeth to require dental crowns are often the very same reasons the root canals become pus-filled. At United Smiles, we take ultimate care in every phase of the crown replacement procedure in order to ensure that your dental crown will be trouble-free.
There is no need to remove the crown to perform root canal therapy if it is properly fitted and is in good shape. However, if the crown is poorly manufactured or improperly attached, this causes plaque and harmful bacteria to accumulate around edges of the crown or even under it. This makes the crown become loose and disconnected from the tooth. It can also lead to internal infection and the need for root canal treatment.
If you are worried about the integrity of an artificial crown, visit our dental practice and we can check it out for you. At United Smiles, we only use the most modern dental technology available and apply the highest standards when it comes to root canal treatment and dental crown replacement.
