What Is Root Canal Surgery?

Root canal surgery or treatment is a very common procedure aimed at rescuing teeth that would otherwise need extraction. Also known as endodontic treatment, root canal surgery becomes a necessary solution when the nerve and blood supply inside the tooth’s pulp face irreversible damage due to infection or trauma.

Furthermore, the multifaceted benefits of the surgery extend beyond the mere alleviation of pain. Not only does it effectively eliminate the localized tooth infection, but it also acts as a protector of the surrounding bone tissue.

Benefits of Root Canal Surgery

Pursuing root canal therapy is a viable solution to address infections without resorting to tooth extraction. This procedure provides noteworthy advantages, which can be summarized as follows:

The Procedure of Root Canal Surgery

Restoration and preservation of the affected tooth through root canal surgery involve different steps:

1. Removing the infected pulp

An opening, known as an access cavity, is carefully created in the affected tooth. This allows your dentist to access the site of infection.

2. Cleaning & shaping

With the infected pulp now extracted, the next step entails cleaning and shaping the root canals and pulp chamber. Following the disinfection, a medicinal substance (temporary filling) is placed within the root canal system.

3. Permanent filling & restoration

At this stage, the temporary filling is replaced with a durable, rubber-based permanent filling called gutta-percha. This material provides stability and forms a tight seal.
