Root Canal Before and After Images of Our Patients

Molar root canal

This young patient had tooth pain and headaches for weeks because a large cavity in her molar reached the nerve.  The root canal procedure was painless. During which we disinfected and cleaned out the infection and nerve tissue in the roots.  The tooth roots were then sealed with medication preventing bacteria from getting inside the tooth.  A post was placed along with a filling to restore the tooth.  Patient did not experience pain during the procedure, just mild soreness once the anesthesia wore off.  Our patient will return to start a crown next week.

Molar root canal

Patient presented in severe pain because a large cavity has reached the nerve in her molar tooth.  Dr. Peter Mann performed the root canal procedure painlessly.  In about an hour the tooth was completely disinfected and cleaned.  We then sealed the root with medication preventing bacteria from re-entering the tooth.  A post with a filling was placed as well.  The patient will return to fabricate a crown for this tooth.

Patient presents with pain on molar tooth.  The nerve in the tooth was infected and inflamed.   The painless root canal treatment disinfected the tooth.  Post and filling were also placed.  And an impression was taken for a new crown on the same visit.

premolar root canal

Patient was having pain on this premolar tooth.  Recurrent tooth decay was discovered under an existing large filling in the tooth.  This tooth was unusual in that premolars usually have just two canals, where this tooth had a very calcified third canal.  All three canals were cleaned, disinfected, and filled with medication.  Patient returned to fabricate a crown a week later.

patient was having pain on her lower molar tooth.  The large filling in the tooth was close to the nerve.  This can sometimes cause the never in the tooth to become necrotic.  The root canal was performed pain free.  All the roots were cleaned and disinfected in one visit.  Patient will return next week to start working on the crown.

Calcified canals Molar root canals

Patient was experiencing pain because of cavities in her molar tooth that reached the nerve tissue.  The canals in this tooth are very thin and calcified.  The root canal procedure was successful in that we were able to clean out the calcifications in the roots and disinfect the tooth fully.  Patient will return to start fabricating a metal-free crown for this tooth.

Patient was experiencing tooth pain due to cavities in premolar tooth.  Root canal procedure was pain free.  The tooth was disinfected and cleaned thoroughly.  A post with a filling was also placed on top of the root canal.  Patient will return to fabricate a crown for this tooth.

Patient presented with an unexplainable “bump” in the gum.  The fistula was traced to reveal the offending tooth in the infection.  The never inside the tooth became necrotic at some point creating the infection.  Root canal was performed to clean and disinfect the tooth.  A few weeks after the “bump” completely disappeared as the infection went away.

Curvy Molar root canal

Patient presented for emergency in pain due to large cavity extending to the nerve of this molar tooth.  A root canal was performed to disinfect and clean the tooth.  A post and a filling were placed on top of the root canal.  The patient will return to start fabricating a crown for this tooth.

Patient presented with severe pain on molar tooth.  Large filling is present in close proximity to the nerve.  A filling close to the nerve may cause the nerve to die off (or become necrotic.)  The canals are extremely thin and calcified in this tooth.   The painless root canal was performed.  All three canals in this molar were disinfected and cleaned well.  A post and a filling were placed.  Patient will return to fabricate a crown on this tooth.

Patient presented in pain.  X-ray revealed a large filling placed in the pulp chamber of the molar.  Root canal was done to disinfect and seal the tooth.  Patient was put on antibiotics to clear up the rest of the infection around the molar.  A crown was fabricated for the tooth shortly after.

Central Incisor root canal

16 year old patient suffered trauma two years ago falling off a bicycle.  The nerve tissue in one of the front teeth died (necrotic) and became infected.  Tooth was disinfected with a root canal.  patient was put on antibiotics.  He’s going to start orthodontics.  Eventually his front teeth will be restored with crowns.

Patient was suffering from unexplainable pain.  Upon examination it was found the nerve inside the tooth died (necrotic) because of bruxism.  In some situations heavy grinding and clenching at night can lead to the nerve inside the tooth dying (necrotic.)  Tooth was disinfected with a root canal.  A night guard was fabricated for the patient. And a crown was made for the tooth as well.

Large infection in Molar | root canal completed

patient presented with a severe abscess due to an infected molar.  Large filling was present close to the nerve pulp which was the likely cause for the nerve to die off and become (necrotic) infected.  The tooth was sterilized with a painless root canal procedure.  Patient was placed on antibiotics.
