3 Points To Keep In Mind Before Undergoing An Endodontic Treatment

by Dr. Nima Dejbod Endodontic Treatment

Endodontic treatment is something that can affect people of any age. It is generally a result of the continued neglect of oral dental care that involves regular brushing and flossing of the teeth. When we ignore our oral hygiene for too long, it can often result in the development of plaque and bacteria in and around the teeth and gums. Overtime, these bacteria reach inside the teeth and can damage the connective tissues and nerve endings inside the pulp cavity.

The immediate care for the damage done to the teeth involves undergoing a root canal treatment procedure that involves removal of the dental infection and cleaning and sterilizing the entire area. This is important to make sure that the infection does not reappear again in the teeth. There are many people who fear that the root canal procedure would be quite painful and it holds them back from going through the treatment. On the contrary, root canal therapy is completely pain-free since the patient is given local anaesthesia before the procedure is performed.

Below, we highlight some of the points to be kept in mind when you have to undergo an endodontic treatment procedure.

  • ·         Know the procedure: Before one undergoes a treatment procedure, it is important to find out all you can about the entire procedure as this will help you understand the procedure better and be adequately prepared for the same. Ask all the questions that you might have about the procedure and prepare accordingly.
  • ·         Set your appointments in advance: An endodontic treatment procedure usually takes 3-4 sittings for the entire treatment to be completed. You should set your appointments in advance to make sure that you can get the right care and have your dental infection completely removed.
  • ·         Find out about post-treatment care: While we always enquire about the treatment procedures, we often miss out on asking about the post-treatment care. You must enquire about the adequate care to be undertaken after the procedure has been performed. The ideal situation usually involves seeing your endodontist one week after your treatment. This allows the doctor to check if all of the infection has been removed and the area is properly sealed off.

When you keep these 3 points in mind, it will allow you a better experience when you have to undergo a root canal therapy. Root canal treatment Issaquah has numerous good endodontist who are experienced and can help you get the best out of your root canal treatment.
