Understanding Root Canal Treatment

Need for Therapy

Root canal therapy becomes necessary when the pulp inside a tooth is infected or damaged. If left untreated, dental infections can lead to severe pain and further complications. Luckily, same day root canal treatment and crown provides a timely solution for addressing dental issues.

For instance, if you have persistent toothache or sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures, it may indicate an infected pulp that requires prompt attention. The same day root canal treatment and crown option allows individuals to address these issues without delay, preventing the condition from worsening.

Root Canal Process

The root canal process involves removing the infected pulp, cleaning the area, and sealing it to prevent reinfection. By employing advanced techniques and tools during this procedure, dentists ensure its efficiency and effectiveness. Using a local anesthetic ensures a comfortable experience for patients undergoing this treatment.

For example, your dentist will start by numbing the affected area before carefully accessing the pulp chamber to remove any infection present within it. This meticulous process aims to alleviate pain while preserving as much of the natural tooth structure as possible.

Healing Period

After a root canal procedure, a healing period is required for the tooth to recover fully. During this time, maintaining proper oral hygiene practices is crucial for successful recovery. Regular check-ups with your dentist will also monitor the healing progress closely.

It’s important to follow your dentist’s post-treatment instructions diligently in order to support optimal healing of the treated tooth.

Combining Root Canal and Crown Procedures

Lifetime success

All the modern clinical research and studies, has shown that 96% of failing root canal treated teeth, which were initially successful, are either due to delayed or defective crown coverage. And thus in first street smiles, we utilize our top notch (CAD/CAM) technology to manufacture and deliver your crown the same day as your root canal treatment.

Time-Saving Solution

The most significant benefit is the time-saving aspect. Instead of multiple visits to the dentist for these two separate treatments, patients can have both completed in a single appointment. This not only saves time but also reduces the hassle of scheduling multiple dental visits. For example, a patient who needs a root canal followed by a crown placement would typically require two or more appointments spread over several days or weeks. However, with same day treatment, all procedures are completed in one visit.

Another advantage of this combination is that it allows for immediate restoration of the tooth after the root canal procedure. Once the infected pulp is removed during the root canal, placing a crown on the tooth immediately helps protect it from Re-contamination.

None to minimally invasive care

When you get your crown the same day as the root canal treatment, we simply use the same numbing agent (Avoiding multiple exposures to the same medication unnecessarily), same postoperative care and recovery time (No restrictions, your tooth is 100% restored), same x-rays (Much less radiation to the same area). This timely approach minimizes risks, discomfort and pain associated with dental problems while ensuring efficient care and maximum benefit.

Ensuring Successful Healing

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, same-day root canal treatment and crowns are safe when performed by experienced professionals. Technological advancements have made the process efficient and reliable, ensuring patient safety.
Recovery time for same-day root canal and crown procedures is typically minimal. Patients may experience mild discomfort for a few days, but they can resume normal activities shortly after the treatment.

This anecdotal saying is absolutely inaccurate, for multiple reasons.

First, it mixes the root canal “treatment” to the painful tooth condition that required the root canal treatment until it got addressed, thus in FIRST STREET SMILES we try to anticipate the need before it becomes an evident painful fact.

Second, in FIRST STREET SMILES, with the available advanced technology and anesthetic techniques, we make it not only painless but mostly safe and less complicated than what it used to be historically (For example we use digital apex locators which means less xrays exposure through the procedure).

Third, we often have patients napping through the procedure.

If the filling is too large and too deep, potentially close to the tooth nerve, root canal treatment becomes inevitable to avoid nerve irritation and disease.
Root canal treated teeth are structurally weak and more vulnerable to mechanical damage and future decay and thus they need to be protected under strong crown to restore safe function as well as esthetics
In Fact, combining both procedures on the same day is much safer, less invasive, more conservative and successful than multiple visits.
Recovery is generally a few days to week, it often involves taking medications to mitigate infection and discomfort symptoms. Most patients become totally unaware of the operated area/tooth within a week.

Initial Root canal treatment is 95% successful, while Re- treatment is showing 85% success rate or less (Depending on the failure reason). Root canal Retreatment used to be a very popular option to save teeth, however after IMPLANTS advent, and with 95-98% success rate of IMPLANTS, root canal retreatment became less popular due to poor prognosis and lack of predictability.
