Coral Gables Root Canal Therapy

Coral Gables Root Canal Therapy

ROOT CANAL THERAPY

Endodontic therapy, as it is also known as, is a treatment for the pulp (nerve ) of a tooth. Completion of the treatment results in the elimination of infection and protection of the decontaminated tooth from future bacterial invasion.

Root canals and their associated nerve chambers are physical housings ( roots ) within a tooth that are naturally filled by nerve tissue, blood vessels, and other entities.

Root canal therapy involves the removal of the infected, traumatized, or otherwise “sick” nerve tissue from within these root canals. This involves cleaning, shaping, and the decontamination of these now hollow root canals with tiny files and irrigating solutions. Finally, the empty root canals are obturated ( filled ) with an inert filling known as Gutta Percha.

With the use of profound local anesthesia and oral sedation ( as needed ), Dr. Dargham and her team will make this as comfortable a visit for you as possible. Antibiotic coverage and pain medication will be prescribed as necessary to assist in a comfortable and uneventful recovery.

Soon after completion of the root canal therapy the tooth should be permanently restored with a core filling and full crown to protect it against an elevated risk of fracture.

 

 

 

Please contact Dr. Dargham and her team to schedule your initial consultation. For your convenience, Dr. Dargham welcomes patients in one of two locations (Coconut Grove Dental Clinic and Biscayne Blvd. Dental Clinic), both located in the heart of Miami Dade County.
