Signs and Symptoms that indicate the need for a root canal treatment
Here are a few common symptoms that indicate you might need a root canal treatment in RR Nagar:
Why should you undergo Root Canal Treatment?
One of the obvious reasons for undergoing Root canal treatment is that it relieves the pain and discomfort caused due to inflammation in the mouth.
By treating your infected tooth with Root Canal Treatment, you can stop further spreading of the infection quickly and save the natural tooth.
Root Canal Treatment is virtually a pain-free procedure with a fast recovery rate.
What happens if your infected tooth is left untreated?
If your infected tooth is left untreated, the bacterial infection can enter into the tissues of the gum and jaw causing a pus-filled abscess. And in severe cases, it can slowly spread and infect other parts of the body, which may even lead to heart disease.
Our Root Canal Treatment Procedure
Your tooth is a calcified three-layered structure consisting of Enamel, Dentin, and Pulp. If there is a bacterial infection, it penetrates through all three layers of the tooth and starts to decay slowly.
If the tooth decay is limited to Enamel and Dentin, it shows symptoms from no pain to mild pain. However, it can be corrected with root filling/restoration. In case the bacterial infection penetrates the center of the tooth or the third layer – pulp it can cause pain due to inflammation and infection. Hence, it needs to be removed.
Here is our step-by-step modern root canal procedure
As a first step, we take an X-Ray of your infected tooth, especially the root part. We examine the X-Ray to get a clear view of the severity of infection based on which we proceed with the treatment.
Next, we will numb the affected tooth with Anesthesia so that you don’t feel the pain during the procedure.
Opening of the crown
An opening is made through the crown of the tooth, and into the infected pulp chamber.
Disinfection of root canal
A topical antibiotic fluid is put into the root canal to kill all the bacteria and rinse out the debris.
Then the pulp is removed using small instruments. And we carefully clean and shape the root canal.
After the root canals are cleaned and shaped, we will fill them with a root canal sealant (rubber-like material) called ‘gutta perch.
Adding a crown
We place the crown on top of the tooth by filling and sealing it with dental cement.
