Cavities are one of the most common causes of tooth damage, usually resulting from constant plaque accumulation in the teeth surface. Some other causes of tooth damage include broken or cracked tooth. While tooth damage can be easily taken care of, the problem becomes a bit complicated when one’s pulp is also inflamed in the process. This experience can be extremely painful and in order to take appropriate care, one needs to visit an endodontic specialist as soon as possible. An endodontic procedure generally involves the root canal therapy, which involves removal of dead and infected tissue form the pulp of our teeth.

The entire root canal procedure can be completed in one sitting or it might take 2-3 sittings to get the process done fruitfully. Endodontic specialists Issaquah set up each dental sitting is for 60-90 minutes. Firstly, local anesthesia is administered, after which a hole is drilled in the area where the infection takes shape. All of the dead and infected tissue material is cleared by the endodontist using specialized tools. After this has been done, the canals are then filled with root canal fillings and it is sealed. Lastly, a crown or cap is placed on top to make it appear like the other teeth.

While endodontic treatment is generally painless, there might often be certain side effects that can cause a lot of pain to the teeth and the gums. A dull pain that persists for a week or so after the procedure usually subsides in a while. However there might also be the risk of the infection taking shape again and hence it will help you to visit your doctor for a checkup if the pain does not subside. Endodontic specialists Issaquah usually offer their clients a sitting after the procedure to check for any further damage.

Many a times, the crown or the cap can get dislodged due to certain factors. This can be quite detrimental as the seal is then exposed and can be eroded, leaving the way for the bacteria to take shape again. When you feel like the crown might be loosening, it is important that you visit your doctor to get a quick check up and fix the damage.

While the side effects aren’t too grievous, they can easily be avoided if one follows certain guidelines during the post treatment phase. This entails using an appropriate toothbrush and floss. One also needs to take certain antibiotics for a week after the procedure. It is also advised that one shouldn’t eat or drink anything for a few hours after the treatment has been completed and avoid all sorts of hard and crunchy food for some time after the treatment procedure.

People tend to consider the cost of the root canal treatment when thinking of going for endodontic treatment Issaquah. While it is an important factor to consider, you also need to remember that the results of a root canal treatment are permanent. Hence, even if you have to spend a lot for the treatment as well as the crown, you can find some solace in the fact that you will not have to suffer from the excruciating pain for the rest of your life.
