What is Root Canal?

Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic therapy, is a dental procedure aimed at saving a severely infected or damaged tooth. The process involves removing the pulp, which contains nerves and blood vessels, from the tooth's interior. The emptied space is then cleaned, disinfected, and filled with a dental material to prevent further infection. This procedure helps alleviate pain, preserve the tooth, and restore oral health.

When do we need to go for Root Canal Treatment?

Root canal treatment is typically recommended when the pulp, which is the innermost part of a tooth containing nerves and blood vessels, becomes infected or damaged. Common indications for needing a root canal include severe toothache, prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold, swelling or tenderness in the gums, and the presence of a pimple on the gums. Additionally, trauma or injury to a tooth can also necessitate root canal therapy. Dentists assess these symptoms through clinical examination and imaging studies, such as X-rays, to determine if a root canal is required to save the tooth and alleviate pain or infection. Early intervention is crucial to prevent the spread of infection and avoid the need for tooth extraction.

What is Root Canal Procedure?

Root canal treatment typically involves several steps. Firstly, the dentist numbs the affected tooth and surrounding area to ensure the patient's comfort. Then, an opening is made in the tooth to access the pulp chamber and root canals. The infected or damaged pulp is carefully removed, and the interior of the tooth is thoroughly cleaned and shaped to eliminate bacteria. After cleaning, the space is filled with a biocompatible material, and a temporary or permanent filling is placed. In some cases, a crown may be recommended to strengthen and protect the treated tooth. This procedure effectively addresses infections, relieves pain, and enables the preservation of the natural tooth structure.
