Overview

Root canal treatments are valuable dental procedures used to treat and preserve teeth with badly infected roots. The pulp located within the tooth, contains nerve endings and tissues. When it becomes infected due to tooth decay, trauma or gum infection, patients can experience pain, swelling and even total tooth loss unless treated. Root canal treatment removes the damaged parts of the tooth and infected pulp from the root canals and the root canals are then sealed. This ensures the tooth doesn’t get infected again in the future. A crown is then fixed over the remaining tooth structure that provides a natural appearance and normal tooth function. The treatment relieves the tooth pain and restores normal function.

Treatments

The decision to perform a root canal treatment is made after thorough examination which includes assessment of signs, symptoms and X-rays. Depending on the presence of active infection, the treatment may be completed in 1 to 3 appointments. The main goal is to free the tooth from infection and prevent re-infection in the future.

At the start of the procedure a local anesthetic is administered to prevent any pain or discomfort during the procedure. Since the infected pulp is located within the tooth structure, an access is made to reach the pulp from the outer surface of the tooth. Once the pulp is reached , the pulp is removed from the crown and root portion of the teeth.

Now the empty root canal chamber is thoroughly rinsed using antibacterial liquids and ultrasonics to disinfect and clean it properly. The now clean and disinfected root canal chamber is filled and sealed with a biocompatible material called gutta percha. A crown is then fixed over the root canal treated tooth to restore aesthetics and function.

A perfectly performed root canal treatment ensures longevity as long as your remaining healthy teeth.
