What is Root Canal Treatment?

Root Canal Procedure can restore damaged and infected tooth caused by cavities and decay; it is a procedure that involves the extraction of diseased tooth pulp. Once the infected pulp is removed, the inside of the tooth will be disinfected and filled with a restorative material to seal it and prevent further damage and infection. After sealing, a protective cap called dental crown is added to the top layer of the tooth to shield the tooth from future damage. By undergoing Root Canal treatment, you can save your tooth from extraction.

When do you need a Root Canal Treatment?

You may need a root canal treatment when you have dental problems such as:

  • Severe Tooth Damage
  • Severe and Chronic Oral pain
  • Tooth Sensitivity
  • Gum Swelling due to an infected tooth
  • Gum Pain
  • Darkening or Discoloration of Teeth

The Root Canal Procedure

  • X-Ray

The first step to start the root canal treatment is by taking an X-ray. The dentist will take digital imaging of the patient’s mouth to locate and see the area of damage.

  • Anesthetics

After the evaluation of the infected area, administering the anesthetics to numb the infected part is the next step; it is to provide a painless and comfortable dental procedure.

  • Pulpectomy

After administering the anesthetics, the dentist will create an opening to the tooth by drilling to expose and remove the infected pulp (Teeth’s vital part).  

  • Filling

After the removal of infected pulp, the tooth will be cleaned and disinfected. A Dental Filling is later applied to seal the tooth(using a restorative material) to restore its structure and function and prevent the infection and damage from spreading.

  • Capping

The last step in the Root Canal procedure is placing the dental Crown (cap-like material) which secures the teeth and protecting it from acids and bacteria causing decay.
