What is a Root Canal?
A root canal is needed when damage occurs to a tooth’s pulp. This can happen due to an injury or due to severe tooth decay. A root canal is often a dreaded procedure but is often the only alternative to having a tooth extracted. Root canals are also very effective at eliminating tooth pain.
the clinic team will work to make each appointment as comfortable as possible for you. At Dr Hesham Rashed clinic , we believe strongly in practicing gentle dentistry. Our specialist Dr Amr Awad will evaluate your tooth and determine if the issue was caused by cavities, a split tooth or root, and if the nerve is in danger. Usually, if the nerve is damaged, it will require a root canal, with our modest and latest endo rotary isntruments it will take only one visit to treat your infected pulp root.
The extent of the procedure and effectiveness will depend on how extensive the tooth damage is. During the root canal treatment, the area is assessed and then the damaged and / or dead pulp is removed and the area is then sealed.
