Root Canal Treatment
Deep cavities, discoloured tooth, broken tooth, cavity with severe pain and swelling need root canal treatment,thus infected tooth can be saved by this RCT procedure.
Tooth has 2 parts, Crown- the top portion above the Gum level, and Root-the supporting tooth structure below the gums. When the tooth decay reaches the the inner most layer of the tooth (pulp), it gets infected causing pain. The aim of the root canal treatment is to remove the infected pulp in crown and roots. This is done with special small size flexible instrument (files) and cleaning and shaping of the root canals and sealing the canal with a filling material. All this procedure is done under local anaesthesia, depending upon the extend of the infection this tooth saving procedure can be done in single sitting or multiple (2-3) sittings.
Very rarely some individuals may feel a mild discomfort especially in lower back tooth RCT procedure. Otherwise it is almost a pain free chairside dental procedure only. Expert endodontic services are carried out by our root canal specialist (Endodontist).
