Benefits of Root Canal Treatment

Only those who have ever experienced a toothache in their life know how excruciating it can be. A toothache is accompanied mainly by swelling of the gums and face, extreme sensitivity, mouth odor, and sometimes even fever. We often end up trying to find an immediate solution with an over-the-counter painkiller. But the underlying infection will soon lead us to the dentist. Gone are the days when extracting the infected tooth was the only available option. By then, the infection would have penetrated deep, affecting the pulp and nerves. With a root canal, also known as endodontic therapy, as your savior, you can preserve your natural tooth and completely get rid of the infection, for it is done from the very root.

How root canal treatment done?

Once your dentist diagnoses the infection with invasive methods such as dental X-rays, he will suggest you undergo root canal treatment.

- Your dentist removes the infected pulp and nerves.

- The area is then thoroughly cleaned and disinfected.

- It is then filled and sealed with a rubbery material called gutta-percha.

- Crown or filling is used as a vital element to ensure that you can chew and bite food.

Why root canal?


As root canal treatment involves identifying the root cause of the infection and then resolving it from the roots, it's implausible that the pain will relapse.


If left untreated, it is not only a tooth that gets affected. The infection is likely to spread to neighboring teeth, jawbones, and sometimes even the brain. Root canal treatment eliminates the root cause of the infection by removing the pulp and nerves involved, thereby offering a solution without further complications.


The word 'root canal' scares people. They have somehow gotten to believe that it is a painful procedure. But with local anesthesia, during treatment, you won't feel any pain. Even kids these days undergo root canal treatments and leave the clinic smiling!


How would it be if an infected tooth meant getting it removed? It would drastically affect your eating habits and smile. A root canal helps you get rid of the infection while preserving your natural teeth.


You will be able to recover from the effect of the root canal treatment on the same day or within two-three days. You can then continue eating all the food that you have typically been having.


If you are someone who maintains good dental hygiene through brushing, and flossing, a tooth on which root canal treatment has been performed, will leave you devoid of pain and worries for a lifetime.


A beautiful smile is something that everyone wishes to possess. And dental health is a significant contributor to the beauty of your smile. If it weren't for root canal treatment, an infected tooth would mean extraction. You would have ended up losing a handful of teeth, and imagine how awkward your smile would be! So keep smiling with the root canal.


Root canal treatments do not burn a hole in your pockets at all. It is advisable to opt for root canal treatment once diagnosed with infection rather than quick remedies. Root canal, being a permanent solution, is an affordable one-time investment. Extraction of the infected tooth would have to be followed by a costly implant.


All dental clinics offer root canal treatments as tooth decay and infection is commonplace now. But it is always recommended to go to a reputed dental clinic with expert dentists such as the Whiteline Dental Clinic if you reside in Dubai.


An infected tooth left untreated can have implications on general health. We recommend visiting your dentist every six months to ensure the wellness of both your teeth and gums.
