Root Canal

Root Canal Therapy

Every tooth consists of three different layers. The outermost and hardest layer is enamel, and the second layer is dentin. The third is pulp, which is the cavernous space where the live tissue and nerve of each tooth is located.

If for any reason the pulp space is exposed to the outside, the tissue becomes contaminated and eventually infected. The exposure of pulp happens in many circumstances, such as when you have a large cavity or a fractured tooth. Your dentist can explain the exact reason for damage to this tissue. In these cases, the treatment is usually root canal treatment.

Root canal treatment is the process of going inside the pulp space and removing the infected, dead tissue. The space is then disinfected and sealed with special materials. Nowadays, root canal treatments are performed with advanced techniques and materials, making them far more comfortable and faster. After root canal treatment is complete, your restorative dentist will usually place a crown on your tooth to safeguard against fracture.

    Dear Anderton Family Dental Patients,

    I know that you all are thinking about safety during the current coronavirus spread. I am writing today not to alarm you, but to put you more at ease in knowing the steps we are taking at Anderton Family Dental to keep you safe and healthy. The virus is likely to cause only mild symptoms in most of us, but it is crucial that we all do our part in preventing its spread.

    CLEANING AT “Anderton Family Dental“:

    We have obtained a list of disinfectants the PA has approved that can kill COVID-19 and we will be using those to clean rooms in between patients. We will be thorough in cleaning the rooms between each patient using these disinfectants to reduce the risk of exposure. Also, following strict sterilization practices and disposable items for your safety and health. We use room filtration/infrared cleaners for air purification. Practitioners and staff will be checking themselves for fever or symptoms and will take time away from the clinic as warranted.

    VISITING “Anderton Family Dental“:

    Please wear a mask when not in the dental chair. Please wash your hands upon arrival. We will have hand sanitizer at the entry or you can use the athroom sink to wash with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds.

    Please stay home if you have a dry cough, shortness of breath or have had a fever in the past 14 days. Inform your doctor of your symptoms.

    LIFESTYLE AND SUPPLEMENTS TIPS TO BOOST IMMUNITY

    Maintain healthy lifestyle habits. Sleep deprivation, stress, excess alcohol or caffeine all decrease immune function. Set yourself up for success with good self-care. Nourish your body with healthy whole foods and drink plenty of fluids.

    Consider stocking up on healthful pantry items such as frozen veggies and berries, frozen meats, poultry and fish, bone broth, soup, nuts, seeds, canned beans, grains, and teas in case you need to spend an extended time at home.

    Thanks in advance for your understanding and patience as we navigate implementing best practices during this time. Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns. Be well and enjoy your day!

    RESPECTFULLY, Dr Anderton and Team
