How Can We Prepare Ourselves For An Endodontic Treatment?

by Dr. Nima Dejbod Endodontic Treatment

If we are to look after our health, we should give prime importance to any and every problem that comes up. But often, we worry about the treatment costs and this prompts us to avoid going to the doctor and getting the problem checked out. We just sit back and hope that the pain will gradually subside and we can go back to normal life.

However, often this can have serious repercussions on our health and we can end up causing more harm than good by trying to save a few bucks. This is especially true for all sorts of tooth related issues. We tend to avoid the pain until it gets absolutely worse and then we are almost too late to get treatment for the same.

If we keep avoiding the problems of our tooth for a long time, many a times, tooth infections reach the insides and have the power to cause rapid tooth decay. When the infection spreads to the pulp cavity, situated inside the teeth, this can cause harm to the nerves and connective tissues inside the pulp cavity. This is an extremely serious teeth problem that needs immediate care.

Root canal treatment or endodontic treatment is then performed to fix the issue in the tooth that has been affected. This involves cleaning the pulp cavity and removing the infected tissue material before it is covered with a dental filling. For this to be done, the endodontist needs to drill a hole on the tooth surface to reach the pulp cavity inside.

While all of this might sound quite complex and painful, root canal treatment Issaquah is actually quite painless. The patient is administered local anesthesia and then he cannot feel a thing while the procedure is successfully performed. An endodontist usually takes 2-3 sittings to complete the procedure entirely. After the procedure has been completed, one is usually advised to go for a check-up to make sure that all of the infection has been successfully removed.

The only way to stay safe from frequent infection is by practicing proper oral hygiene all the time and taking appropriate care of our tooth and gums. Once in a while, it is also advised to go for a dental check up and see to it that everything is all right. Scaling and root planning can help to clean the areas of the teeth that cannot be reached by our toothbrushes.
