Root Canal Treatment

 

What is a root canal treatment?

 

Root canal is the treatment in which the infected pulp is removed from the tooth and the space occupied by it is cleaned and filled with a special filling material. Even though the pulp has been removed from the inside of the tooth, the tooth is still embedded in a living jaw structure. The root canal tooth will not feel hot or cold. However the tooth would still retain normal sensation to touch or pressure.

 

Why is a root canal treatment done?

 

For years, teeth with diseased or injured pulps were removed to prevent or to treat the consequences mentioned above. Today, root canal treatment has given dentists a safe way to save teeth. Based on the results obtained so far it is safe to say that more than 90% of endodontic cases respond to root canal treatment. If carried out.

 

How is the root canal treatment done?

 

Contrary to popular belief root canal treatment is not painful .It is carried out under local anesthesia which makes the tooth numb.

The treatment can be completed in a single appointment or may require more than three appointments.
