Root Canal

Root canal/Endodontic Treatment in Abu Dhabi

What is a root canal treatment?

A root canal treatment or endodontic treatment is a procedure aimed at removing bacteria and infected tissues from the affected area in the tooth. This treatment is necessary to alleviate pain caused by prolonged tooth infections and to remove deep-seated infections from the tooth canal. If left untreated, the condition can worsen, potentially leading to tooth extraction. Typically, the root canal procedure is completed in one dental appointment. To maintain good oral health and prevent additional cavities or infections, it is important to follow proper oral hygiene practices after the procedure

Symptoms of a root canal treatment:

Root canal pain is a common dental issue that can cause severe discomfort and require immediate attention. The following are some common signs and symptoms that may indicate the need for a root canal:

  • Sensitivity to Hot and Cold: If you experience prolonged sensitivity and pain to hot and cold substances, it could be a sign of an infected tooth that requires a root canal.
  • Intense Pain: Spontaneous, wave-like pain in your mouth could be a sign of an infected or dead tooth that may require a root canal.
  • Bumps on Gums: Pimple-like bumps on your gums known as fistulas, could indicate the need for a root canal.
  • Swollen Gums: Tender and painful swollen gums that persist after brushing or flossing can be a sign of an infected tooth that requires a root canal.
  • Chipped or Cracked Tooth: A chipped or cracked tooth could indicate a traumatic injury that has caused an infected or inflamed pulp, or a tooth that is so far decayed or infected that it is cracking or chipping. In either case, a root canal may be necessary to save the remaining tooth.
  • Darkening of Gums: The darkening of gums can be a sign of decaying gums, which may indicate that the tooth is infected and dying, requiring a root canal.
  • Abscess: An abscess, which can be seen on an x-ray as a dark spot, is a hole in the jawbone caused by an infection. This is a clear indication that a root canal is required.
  • Tender Gums: If your gums are tender to the touch or even without touch, it may indicate root canal pain. Be sure to mention this symptom to your dentist.

Root canal procedure:

During a root canal treatment, we will numb the affected tooth to ensure comfort during the procedure. Our dentist will access the nerve chambers and carefully remove any infected tissue inside. With the aid of a dental microscope, each canal will be thoroughly cleaned. The tooth will then be sealed to prevent future bacterial growth, and the treatment is typically completed in one visit. A dental crown may be required to protect the treated tooth and restore its function.

Our Endodontic Treatment Services:

At our clinic, we offer a wide range of endodontic treatment services to address various dental concerns, including:

Root Canal Therapy: Our skilled endodontists perform root canal therapy to remove infected or damaged pulp tissue, clean the root canal system, and seal the tooth to prevent further infection.

Endodontic Retreatment: In cases where a previous root canal treatment has failed or complications have arisen, we provide endodontic retreatment to address recurrent infection or inadequate healing.

Apicoectomy: For certain cases of persistent infection or damage near the tip of the tooth root, we may recommend apicoectomy, a surgical procedure to remove the infected tissue and seal the root tip.

Dental Trauma Management: We specialize in treating dental trauma cases, such as fractured teeth or avulsed (knocked-out) teeth, with prompt and effective endodontic interventions to save the tooth whenever possible.
