Root Canal Treatment Procedure

Root Canal Treatment (known as “Endodontic Treatment”) involves removing the damaged or dead nerve tissues and pus in the root canals of teeth that have become infected. The infected or dead tissue is cleaned away and the residual canal space is also cleaned and disinfected, and the root canal is prepared so that it can be sealed with a filling. The tooth can then be restored and can remain in function for many years provided there is sufficient sound tooth structure to support a new filling or crown.

Symptoms that indicate you may need root canal treatment

  • Tooth Pain That Doesn’t Go Away

    Many dental problems can cause tooth pain. If you have pain deep in your tooth you may need root canal therapy. Discomfort may also radiate to your jaw, face or other teeth.
  • Swollen Gums

    When a tooth is infected, pus can collect in the area. This can lead to puffy, swollen or tender gums.
  • Pimple On The Gums

    You may develop a pimple or boil on the gums. Pus from the infected tooth may drain from the pimple, causing an unpleasant taste or smell.
  • Loose Tooth

    An infected tooth may feel looser. This is because the pus from the infected pulp can soften the bone that supports the tooth.
  • Pain When Pressure Is Applied

    If you have pain when you eat or touch your tooth, it could mean the nerves around the pulp are damaged.
  • Sensitivity To Heat And Cold

    If your tooth hurts when you drink hot coffee or eat ice cream, it could mean that you need root canal treatment. This is especially true if the pain lingers for more than a few seconds.
  • Swollen Jaw

    Sometimes pus doesn’t drain from the site. As a result, your jaw may become visibly swollen.
  • Tooth Discoloration

    When the pulp of a tooth becomes infected, it can cause your tooth to look darker This occurs because of poor blood supply to the tooth.
  • A Chipped Or Cracked Tooth

    If you’ve cracked a tooth in an accident, when playing sports or even by biting down on something hard, bacteria can reach all the way into the tooth pulp

Root Canal Treatment Procedure

There are numerous steps in the process of root canal treatment that our experienced dentist, Dr. Sowmya Paras will perform to save your tooth. A tooth has three layers enamel, dentin and pulp. When the cavity is so deep that it has reached the pulp, Root Canal Treatment(RCT) has to be done. RCT can be done in single visit or multiple visits depends on clinical condition of respective tooth.

With a dummy teeth, the dentist illustrates the layers of teeth and demonstrates how root canal treatment is performed.

In the beginning of RCT, our dentist will give you a local anaesthesia to make sure that you will not have any pain during the treatment.Carious portion of the tooth is then removed using a bur and then slowly to the pulp chamber.

Dentist carefully examines and performs efficient root canal treatment using a dental microscope.

The pulp and infected tissues will then be carefully removed from both the pulp chamber and the root canals. Each root canal is then cleaned and shaped to allow it to be filled. We use our dental microscope to thoroughly oversee the cleaning inside of each canal. In order to disinfect the pulp chamber and root canals, antimicrobial medications will be placed over there.

A temporary filling may be placed in the crown opening to prevent saliva from entering the chamber and root canals, or we might immediately begin the next stage of filling the root canal.

The root canals are generally filled with gutta-percha, a rubber-like material obtained from trees.

In the final stage, the temporary filling is removed and the tooth may be restored by a crown or a filling to reinforce the tooth structure and improve its appearance. You might be prescribed antibiotics and other medication during the course of your treatment
