Root Canal Therapy
A procedure to save and restore a damaged or infected tooth is called root canal. This treatment includes eliminating the damaged portion of the tooth (pulp), cleaning it and then sealing it. A deep cavity, cracked tooth and repeated dental treatment affect the pulp.
The name “root canal” means cleaning the canal inside the tooth’s root.
Steps during a ROOT CANAL
Speak to your dentist when you need a root canal. Here are the steps that you can expect during a root canal treatment:
X-ray: The dentist will first take X-rays to know where the decay is located.
Anesthesia: This will apply to the affected tooth. In fact, a root canal is no more painful than a filling.
Pulpectomy: Removing the diseased tooth pulp and an opening is made as well.
Filling: Opened roots are filled with gutta-percha material and solidify off with cement.
Our professional dentists at Smile Zone are all well trained to handle root canal treatment. If there is any special care needed, our dentist will discuss and help you with your oral health issues.

Wisdom Tooth Extraction
The teeth that grow at the back of your gums are the last teeth to come out which are the wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth are positioned in each corner of the mouth. They usually come out into the gums during late teens or early twenties. At that time, other 28 adult teeth are in its place. Therefore sometimes there is not enough space in the mouth for the wisdom teeth. In this situation, the wisdom teeth get stuck and partially grow. It is now considered as impacted.
See your dentist and schedule an appointment if you are feeling severe pain or you are uncomfortable with your wisdom teeth. Your dentist will check your teeth and suggest to you whether or not to have your wisdom teeth removed.
Wisdom teeth that become impacted can cause dental issues. Bacteria and small particles of food can get trapped between the edge of the wisdom teeth which can cause plaque build up and which can lead to the following:
- gum disease (also called gingivitis or periodontal disease)
- tooth decay (dental caries)
- cysts and benign growths
