Root canals are often prescribed to necrotic teeth or the ones with irreversible inflammation. They also can be prescribed if a tooth is fractured due to trauma. In two words: you get to preserve your natural tooth. The first layer of the tooth, that you usually see and brush, is called enamel. The enamel covers a hard layer called dentin which contains, deep inside the tooth, the pulp. The pulp includes nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue which helps the tooth to grow during development. If the pulp is infected, due to deep caries, a trauma or other reasons, a root canal treatment is prescribed. Signs of pulpal disease are:

  • Exaggerated sensitivity to heat and cold
  • Discoloration of the tooth
  • Swelling and abscess
  • Pain while chewing or pain in the gum

How does modern dentistry help? Having high-tech equipment, Aoude Dental Center dentists perform root canal like any other usual dental procedure: painless, fast and can be done in only 1 appointment. Aoude Dental Center uses the most advanced equipment to make your experience the most comfortable and seamless possible. However, the tooth can be sore after the procedure for a few days.


By keeping your natural tooth, you prevent misalignment of your teeth and loss of function. Known as an endodontic treatment, it involves removing infected or dead pulp from the tooth.

If left untreated, the abscess caused by root canals infections can lead to serious oral health problems. With:

Why a root canal?

  • for a more efficient chewing and normal bite
  • for a more natural appearance of your tooth
  • for a more natural biting sensation
  • to prevent other teeth from over function and excessive wear
  • to prevent untreated abscesses and serious complications and health problems due to untreated infections.

A root canal consists of these 3 basic steps:

  • removal of the infected nerve
  • sterilizing and shaping the canals
  • sealing the canals with a rubber-like material

After a root canal:

  • expect soreness in your tooth for a few days up to 2 weeks
  • avoid chewing on it for a few days
  • have a crown done on your root canal since the teeth are generally less nourished and weaker after a root canal. A crown will prevent your tooth from fracture.
