Endodontics is a speciality within dentistry that focuses on the tooth pulp and supporting tissues. Our endodontists can help you maintain your smile by treating the pain and saving your tooth from extraction. Our endodontists in Dubai are experienced in discovering the causes of facial and oral pain that is typically hard to identify through physical examination.
Best Root Canal Treatment In Dubai
In root canal treatment, the injured or diseased pulp inside the tooth is removed. This relieves toothache and helps to ward off bacteria that may be damaging to oral health. Your dentist will access the tooth pulp and remove affected tissues. The internal tooth area is disinfected and cleaned properly, then the tooth is sealed using a dental filling or crown.
An apicoectomy is often called a root-end resection because it works on the end of your root, also called the apex. An apicoectomy is a surgical approach, whereby a small incision is made through the gum tissues at the level of the affected root, permitting direct access to the infected root-end tissues. This allows the removal of any inflamed or infected tissue near or around the tip of the root. A very small filling is then placed at the end of the root canal to seal the canal and prevent further infection. Afterwards, a few sutures (stitches) are placed to assure that the gum tissues are closed and will heal properly.
Frequently Asked Questions
I am very concerned about having X-rays taken. Should I be?
The short answer is no, there is nothing to be worried about. The minute amount of x-ray radiation any patient is exposed to is negligible and deemed within safe limits. X-rays are a vital part of the dental process and are essential for the dentist to reach the correct diagnosis and carry out the treatment to its completion.
Should I be worried about further infection?
Provided the treatment is carried out by experienced general dentists, to a high standard, there is no reason why this should be a concern. Further, we maintain a clean and hygienic environment to protect against cross-infection.
What happens after the root canal treatment is completed?
After the completion of your treatment, you need to return for a follow-up a few weeks later. It is generally recommended that the root canal treated tooth be restored or crowned depending on the case to prevent it from further fracture. This would typically be carried out by our restorative dentist. We will contact you to schedule a restorative dental appointment within a few weeks after completion of your root canal treatment. Our restorative dentist will determine what type of restoration is needed to protect your tooth. Endodontic patients rarely experience complications following routine endodontic treatment. We are always available to help if a problem arises.
