According to Dr. Jason Favagehi, in case of infected, decayed or injured teeth, tooth extraction should be the last option. There are treatments like root canal that can be used to protect the teeth and preserve natural tooth structure.
What is Endodontic Therapy?
Also known as root canal therapy, the purpose of the Endodontic therapy is to protect the natural tooth structure. Most of the dental patients may fear the root canal because of the long and torturous dental procedures, but the modern root canal from an experienced endodontist is a comfortable – mostly completed in 2 visits. Root canal therapy saves the patient from the pain and also allows him to keep his/her tooth for best chewing, speaking, jaw bone density and tooth alignment.
What Happens During a Tysons Corner Root Canal?
After the oral exam and low radiation digital x-ray, when the root canal is confirmed as the diagnosis, Dr. Jason Favagehi makes the patient comfortable with simple local anesthesia to numb the area around the tooth. If required, he also offers oral conscious sedation to the patients. However, most root canal procedures are not so complex that they need this level of care.
The specialist Tysons Corner dentist at SmilePerfectors continues to drill a tiny pilot hole into the tooth, accessing the root canal or the inner pulp chamber. The main purpose of the endodontic therapy is to remove the inner soft tissue made up of small blood vessels nerves and connective tissues.
Dr. Jason Favagehi then uses several small files of increasing size to clean out the infected chamber completely and smooth the walls. He instills antimicrobial medication and fills the cleaned chamber with gutta percha. Dr. Favagehi repeats the procedure on the other root canals. The final step is the placement of a temporary filling. At the next appointment, the tooth receives its permanent restoration–a shiny new porcelain crown.
