Save Your Teeth With Root Canal Treatment

Our tooth consists of white enamel and the dentin (the hard layer), under that there is a soft tissue called the pulp. This pulp contains nerves, blood vessels and the connective tissue. Sometimes, the pulp becomes inflamed or infected which leads to pain and abscess. From a Root canal treatment we can restore this damaged pulp and save our tooth.

Endodontic treatment, commonly known as root canal is a treatment used to repair and save a badly damaged tooth. The term ‘root canal’ came from cleaning of the dental root canals. A root canal is a safe way of saving the tooth.

The Procedure

The procedure of root canal treatment includes removing the pulp (the damaged area) of the tooth. Then the pulp is filled and sealed with a rubber like material called ‘gutta percha’ after cleaning and disinfecting the damaged area. Finally a crown is placed at the top for protection. After this restoration the tooth continues to function like any other tooth.

Root canal treatment are employed to the following conditions:

  • Sensitive tooth

  • Dental trauma

  • Root amputation

  • Apicoectomy

  • When chemicals are released which leads to infection at the tip of the root.

  • Some times in case of acute infections to avoid spreading of infection and relieving the pain.
