Root canal in Malmö at a good price
A root canal, also called endodontics, is a method to treat inflammation inside the tooth, the pulp or the dental nerve. The pulp is the "heart" of the tooth and consists of nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue that together fill the dental canals that extend from the tooth root into the crown and back.
Causes of root canals
Through the pulp, the tooth is kept alive but severe caries or dental fillings can inflame or infect the pulp. With a root canal treatment, the inflamed pulp can be removed and replaced with a rubber material called gutta-percha. Through gutta-percha, the canals are kept free from contamination and infection and the tooth can be retained instead of extracted.
Various causes of acute pulp inflammation are described below, which are accompanied by swelling, internal pressure in the tooth and pain:
- Long-term caries
- Deep fillings near the nerve
- Repeated dental treatments – e.g. replacement of a large filling
- Traumatic damage such as cracks, chipping or bridges
- Traumatic occlusion – repeated excessive impact on the tooth, when the teeth are clenched
Does a root canal hurt?
A root canal begins with opening the tooth completely, in order to find all the canals. Number of canals differs from tooth to tooth; there can be 1-4 canals in a tooth. When all the canals have been located, they are measured electronically, so that the root filling covers the entire canal from the end of the root all the way up. The channels are carefully cleaned with files. Then they are flushed with an antiseptic solution and finally the canals are filled with gutta-percha. A root canal can be painful, but the pain goes away with anesthesia that is usually given in conjunction with the treatment. After the root filling, the tooth must be fitted with composite or a crown, depending on how much of the tooth has been lost.
Another method consists of two steps: cleaning and filling. If the tooth inflammation also extends to the surrounding bone material, the pain is caused by both regions. An antiseptic agent is then used after the canal cleaning. After that, a healing period of at least one week with a provisional filling must follow. If you are free of discomfort after that and we can see that successful bone healing has begun, we continue the treatment with the second step. We finish the root canal treatment with an individually adapted tooth filling.

If necessary, and above all in cases where it is not possible to give an initial stage of anesthesia, we can always offer sedatives that make it easier to relax.
We are careful to ensure that the root canal is done in the best way and do not end the treatment until we have dealt with the problems and any pain. Because of this, in some cases it can be difficult to know how long it will take to complete the treatment, but regardless of which, we set it up with a focus on your well-being. In the event that you continue to be in pain after a root canal, we will of course also follow up on the situation.
