What is a root canal procedure?
To save a tooth in which the nerves and blood arteries within the tooth have been injured or infected, endodontic treatment or root canal therapy is used.

This can be due to reasons such as:
  • Decay
  • Fracture/cracks
  • Leaky fillings
  • Trauma
  • Multiple dental treatment on tooth.

The purpose of treatment is to heal the affected tooth and the tissues around it. To restore chewing function and stop tooth migration, one option to root canal therapy is to remove the affected tooth and replace it with an implant, fixed prosthetic denture, or removable denture. However, none of the aforementioned choices are as successful as being able to keep your natural tooth and keep it in your mouth.

What happens during root canal therapy?:
  • Following the selection of the tooth for root canal therapy, local anaesthesia is used to achieve a sufficient level of anaesthesia. To make the treatment painless and to put the patient at ease, local anaesthesia is given.
  • The length of the root canal procedure will depend on the condition of the tooth and may take several visits or just one. Depending on the tooth's level of infection and the method of treatment, the majority of treatments require two to three visits.
  • Utilizing specialised files and devices, the contaminated tissues will be eliminated during these appointments. With the help of these specialised tools, the root canal cavity is then cleaned, sterilised, and expanded. This makes it possible to completely clear the canals of germs.
  • They are filled with "Gutta percha," a rubber-like material, once the area has been cleaned and formed. A temporary filling substance is used to close the tooth's opening before a permanent filling material is added later.
Post root canal care

Your teeth should be symptom-free and infection-free after root canal therapy. Root canal treated teeth can be naturally brittle and prone to shatter, thus you must attach a crown to provide strength and support in order to prevent that.

Upkeep and evaluationbr> We advise maintaining root canal repaired teeth with tooth brushing and flossing. To ensure that their teeth are healthy and intact, we also advise patients to have frequent checkups every six months.

Keeping your diet's right nutritional balance as a result. Your natural teeth are the only option that works as well. Endodontic treatment lasts longer and is more affordable than using a fixed or removable prosthetic denture to replace the removed area. When opposed to a root canal followed by a crown, prosthetic replacement takes more time.


"Root canal therapy hurts."– NO!

A tooth with caries may exhibit symptoms, such as discomfort or sensitivity while the patient chews food. However, with more modern techniques and anaesthesia, root canal procedures are now thought to be painless. When such infected teeth are treated, discomfort and sensitivity decrease, and the teeth become healthier and more normal.
