Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment to save your tooth in Dubai, UAE

If you are suffering from tooth pain or an infection that doesn’t go away with medications, then you may have an infection in the inner portion of your tooth, called the pulp. When this happens, root canal therapy may be recommended. Also called endodontic therapy, root canal treatment is a highly effective way of eliminating your tooth pain, halting the infection, and saving your natural tooth. If you are looking for a root canal dentist, we are here to meet your needs at Precision Dental Clinic in downtown Dubai, UAE.

 How root canal therapy works

Beneath the hard-outer layer of enamel and dentin in your tooth lies an inner chamber, which contains a soft tissue that is called pulp, as well as blood vessels and nerves. To perform a root canal, we do the following:

  • Numb the tooth and surrounding area with local anesthetic so you are pain-free throughout the procedure
  • Drill a small hole in the crown of the tooth to access the inner contents of the tooth
  • Remove the infected pulp, as well as the nerve and other contents of the pulp chamber
  • Thoroughly disinfect and cleanse the area
  • Fill the pulp chamber with a rubber-like material called gutta percha
  • Seal the tooth and restore it with a restoration, typically a crown, for long-term protection and durability

Root canals may need one, two, or more treatments depending on the extent of infection and inflammation

Hi, so one common question that we are usually asked as an endodontist is, can root canals be completed in one visit?

Hi, so one common question that we are usually asked as an endodontist is, can root canals be completed in one visit? Most root canals cannot be completed in one visit. It usually depends upon the extent of infection and inflammation. If you have minimal inflammation and no infection, we can treat your tooth in one visit. If you have a mild infection, we can treat it in two visits, but if you have infection which has spread quite a bit and there is some swelling, or your tooth has a complex anatomy, then sometimes we may need even three to four visits to complete your root canal.


Why perform a root canal?

Root canal therapy may be necessary due to issues such as tooth decay, an abscess, or traumatic injury to a tooth. In some cases, injuries from long ago will not manifest themselves until years later, when the tooth suddenly starts causing you pain.

 If you wait too long for a root canal, extraction may be necessary because left untreated, the infection in the tooth can become widespread and lead to irreversible damage to the tooth.

Alexandra was terrified of visiting the dentist. But the wonderful team at Precision Dental helped her get over her fears and her pain. Dr. Anisha, who treated her root canals successfully, is kind, dedicated and gifted and so is the team.

Dr. Anisha, what can I say? You’ve been unbelievably amazing; it’s Alexandra, by the way- the root canal.
We have seen each other many, many times. It got to a point where your office was probably my second home.
I’d like to thank you from the bottom of my heart because I was in so, so much pain. I had never met you; I had never been to a dentist out here; I am one of those people who prefers to avoid doctors, dentists, and anything that appears like it will be torturous at all costs.

But you did so much, and I mean with the root canal, it is a nasty process, but you took me all the way through it, you were so kind, you were so patient because let’s face it, I was in a lot of pain, and you came in on your days off, and you really, really care about people, you are so dedicated and so kind.

And I have to say how wonderful you are, and even if I move back to the UK, I think I am probably going to fly out just to see you; I am terrified of doctors and dentists, but you are wonderful..

I think all of your staff are wonderful too. They are so polite, so kind and all I can say is just thank you so, so much. I have already referred to one of my friends, and I will refer you and refer you and refer you. You are wonderful at your job, very gifted. And thank you so so much!

Dr. Anisha did my root canal treatment this evening.

I mean, the treatment was painless, and I feel so comfortable.
I am just so appreciative of her services.
Thank you so much, Precision Dental Clinic.
