A Root Canal in Lincolnwood IL is the most important step in the conservation of teeth. This is to ensure that infection of the oral cavity through the channels does not surrounding the root. Creating a sealed barrier of the root canal with filling material will guarantee its functioning. Filling of the root canal is the final stage of treatment. Maximum success is likely with if the dentist fills the channel full with dense material. This prevents the accumulation and proliferation of microbes in the remaining part of the channel and exclude them access to radicular tissue (periodontal).
Why seal root canals?
* No pain.
* Lack of swelling and edema in the area of the tooth.
* The absence of pain when tooth is touched.
* The lack of odor in the root canal.
The main stages of root canal treatment:
* Removing softened and infected tissue.
* Antiseptic (antimicrobial) processing in the channel (at each stage).
* Expansion of the channel by hand and machine.
* Filling of the root canal.
Methods of root canal filling
* Lateral condensation – The introduction of gutta-percha cones. Seal it to the walls of the channel and compact the gutta-percha, ensuring it fills the entire lumen of the canal.
* Vertical condensation (three-dimensional filling) – Filling the channel with the help of heated gutta-percha. This method allows dentists to fill the existing laterals and additional channels in three directions. A portion of the heated gutta-percha is introduced into the canal with a special tool. The tool allows the gutta-percha into all additional branches, which creates an additional barrier of penetration into the radicular tissue. Following that, the dentist introduces the next portion until it fills the entire lumen of the canal. Click here
Retreatment of root canals
The purpose of retreating poorly sealed root canals is to eliminate infection and prevent inflammation in radicular tissues of the tooth.
Indications for retreatment of root canals:
* Identifying incomplete filling of the root canal.
* The presence of foci and inflammation in radicular tissues.
* The absence of a positive result in the inflammation over time identified in the X-ray.
* The appearance of swelling, pain and sensitivity during chewing.
* Poorly sealed channels.
