Certified Endodontist

Do you have sensitivity that lasts more than 15 seconds after drinking hot or cold substances? If is your case or experiment pain upon biting, you may need a Root Canal Therapy.

Root Canal Therapy is a good solution for patients who have significant inflammation or infection in the pulp of a tooth. Without treatment, the infection may progress to cause pain or formation of an abscess underneath the tooth, which affects the strength and function of the tooth.

Root Canal Therapy in Mexico

When is a Root Canal needed?

A Root Canal Therapy is needed when the pulp becomes inflamed or infected, so the infection may spread through the root canal system of the tooth.  This may eventually lead to an abscess. An abscess is an inflamed area in which pus collects and can cause swelling of the tissues around the tooth. The symptoms of an abscess can range from a dull ache to severe pain, and the tooth may be tender when you bite. Removing injured or infected pulp is the best way to preserve the structure of the tooth.

Common causes of damage to the pulp include:
  • Deep decay due to an untreated cavity.
  • Multiple dental procedures on the same tooth.
  • A chip or crack in the tooth
  • An injury to the tooth

Root Canal Procedure

Prevent further problems such as abscess and bone loss. In some cases a tooth will have no symptoms at all, but after full dental evaluation and X-Rays will show that the Root Canal is needed

Root Canals are done by an Endodontist and requires the Specialist to make a hole through the enamel and dentin surfaces to gain access to the pulp chamber, where the Endodontist proceeds to remove the pulp, clean the pulp chamber and seal the chamber with gutta percha. To insure the long term success of the tooth after a Root Canal an antibiotic is prescribed and a Post and Core Build Up and Crown is recommended to prevent fractures or filtration of bacteria to the tooth.

Step-by-Step Root Canal Procedure
  • At the beginning of the procedure, the dentist will isolate the tooth using a rubber dam and anesthetize the tooth sufficiently to prevent pain while performing the procedure.
  • The dentist uses a drill to access the pulp chamber and related canals of the tooth. This allows inserting specialized dental instruments to clean the pulp chamber and root canals. Then the specialist clean completely the remaining space and shape it to make space for a filling. The filling will replace the pulp in the tooth.
  • The dentist fills the Root Canal with a bio compatible material. Gutta-percha and Adhesive dental cement are good options to seal the root canal. Sealing prevents future infections in the area.
  • A temporary filling is placed in the hole used to access the root canals. Once the dentist deems the tooth is healing properly and the root canal is a success, he places a permanent restoration.

Post & Core Build Up

A Post & Core Build Up is a treatment that is done after a Root Canal and is needed to regain stability and tooth structure to that tooth. Once the pulp chambers are cleaned and sterilized a fiber post will be placed into the chamber to a help absorb the shock from masticatory forces. The Post also helps to anchor the Core Build Up to the actual tooth.

After Root Canal
Apointment Instructions

Following a Root Canal treatment procedure, patients need to pay attention to some aspects during the recovery and aftercare period. Oral care is also essential to prevent further damage to the teeth after Root Canal treatment.

Patients should be recommended to:

  • Brush teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste
  • Floss teeth daily
  • Book regular professional cleanings with the dentist or dental hygienist
  • Schedule regular dental appointments to check dental health

As a general rule, the dentists advise avoiding putting excessive pressure on the affected tooth. Patients should avoid biting down on very hard or sticky foods. This type of foods can cause fracture and detachment of the filling.

For this procedure pour specialists administer local anesthesia to numb the area and relief the patient from the pain she or he could have, and to prevent discomfort while performing the procedure.

Root Canal vs Tooth Extracted?

We are specialists in Conservative Dentistry. At CDS, we believe the best is to keep natural teeth the longest possible instead of extractions. That is more beneficial for patients in the long run. Extracting a tooth causes the shifting of the teeth around, discomfort while chewing, and bone loss.

Treatment Alternatives

Dental Extraction alternative
Extraction

If the tooth has been severely decayed to the gum line or if there tooth is found to be brittle upon physical evaluation we may have to extract the tooth to prevent from further infection.

Short Bicon Dental Implants as alternative
Short Bicon Dental Implants

We use the Bicon System of Short Implants in order to take advantage of minimal bone levels and avoid vital structures such as the sinus or mental foramen, which usually require multiple visits.

Zygomatic Dental Implants
Zygomatic Dental Implants

Implants that are much longer in length than conventional Implants (40 mm – 50 mm), and are placed in the dense Zygoma bone or otherwise known as the cheekbone. The advantage of using Zygomatic Implants is that it eliminates the need for procedures like Bone Grafting and/or Sinus Lifting, which would require more surgery and longer healing periods before the placement of the final restoration.
