ROOT CANAL TREATMENT

Root canal is a treatment to repair and save a badly damaged or infected tooth instead of removing it. The term “root canal” comes from cleaning of the canals inside a tooth’s root. Decades ago, root canal treatments often were painful.

The outer portion or Crown of a tooth is a three-layered structure namely – Enamel, Dentin & Pulp. If the tooth decay is limited to the first two layers, it can be corrected with Filling / Restoration. In case the tooth decay reaches the third layer and causes inflammation or infection of the pulp, an RCT or Endodontic Treatment is needed.

WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE FOR ROOT CANAL TREATMENT?

Step 1:

The very first step involves an X-ray which is taken to determine the extent and approach to infection. If required local anesthesia is administered before starting the treatment.

Step 2:

The next step is Cavity Preparation. A cavity is prepared, making sure all the infected tooth material or previous filling material is removed and a proper approach to inner-part of the tooth (pulp) is established.

Step 3:

This is followed by disinfection and shaping of pulp canals. The infected pulp is cleared out completely, canals are shaped and cleaned. Thorough disinfection is achieved.

Step 4:

Clean and disinfected canals are then sealed and filled with an inert rubber-like filling material known as Gutta-Percha.

Step 5:

The very last step is restoration & crown. The crown portion of the tooth cavity is then restored with a filling, followed by a Cap/Crown cementation.

Frequently Ask Questions About Root Canal Treatments.

Here are some answers to frequently asked questions. Tooth after root canal treatment. What is a root canal?

Avoid eating immediately after the procedure – your mouth may still be numb, which makes you prone to biting yourself and other accidents. Avoid chewing hard and crunchy foods – you are still in recovery. Give your tooth ample time to heal before you can resume your normal lifestyle.
Resting is very important and we recommend taking it easy for at least 24 hours after your treatment. Resting will help you and your smile recuperate and heal. If your doctor recommends resting for a longer period of time, please do as he says.
In most cases, antibiotics are not required after endodontic therapy. You will be given a prescription for antibiotics if we feel it will be necessary. Some medical conditions require a special antibiotic prophylaxis regimen taken prior to the appointment to help prevent damage to certain structures.
