Procedure Overview:

No artificial tooth is as healthy and durable as a natural tooth. For this reason, taking good care of your teeth should be a priority. When a tooth does start to cause problems, root canal therapy might become necessary. If the living tissue or pulp (the package of veins and nerves) in the root of the tooth goes dead or begins to rot, root canal therapy will be required. Before advances in dentistry, damaged teeth were immediately extracted as they could not be saved. Thanks to root canal therapy, however, the interior of damaged teeth can be cleaned and refilled, allowing patients to continue using their natural teeth. At the same time, such therapy prevents the damaged tooth from affecting adjacent teeth.

Why Root Canal Therapy?

Root canal therapy (endodontics) is a method of treatment that ensures damaged teeth do not need to be extracted. If the pulp inside the tooth is damaged to an extreme degree, the tooth and nerve dies. The loss of such nerve endings means patients do not feel any pain, but if the dead pulp is not removed from the tooth in a timely fashion, dentists will be forced to extract the tooth, while the damage will also spread to the adjacent tissue and teeth.

What Happens if Root Canal Therapy is not Undertaken?

Tooth decay kills the internal pulp, meaning that it cannot cure itself as necessary. In such a case, the tooth begins to die, while the infection starts to spread to the whole tooth. If root canal therapy is not conducted, the infection will reach the root apex and begin to damage the tissue. The progression of the infection results in abscess, intense pain and swelling, requiring treatment with antibiotics to reduce the swelling. After the reduction in swelling, dental experts can apply root canal therapy if the tooth is not in a serious enough condition to warrant extraction.

Dental Implant Surgery:

The surgery starts with a consultation. During this appointment, x-rays will be taken and your medical history will be checked. If everything looks okay, then you move on to the next step.

Part two of the process involves damaged teeth being removed. Your jawbone is then drilled into, and the implants are placed. This is all done under an anaesthetic so that you feel as comfortable as possible. After the area has healed and the implant has fused to your bone, an abutment will be added. This is the section that connects the artificial tooth to the fixture.

Once the abutments are added, you’re ready to receive your new smile. A mould is taken of your existing teeth and an artificial set is created. You now have two options. You can choose between a removable set of teeth or fixed placed ones.

After the surgery, you might feel bruising. This discomfort will only be momentary whilst the positive effects will last a lifetime.
