Nothing feels or functions as good as a natural tooth! Sometimes your natural tooth may need a Root Canal Treatment for it to remain a healthy part of your mouth.
To understand when RCT is needed, it is important to have some basic idea about the tooth. A tooth has 3 layers- enamel (outermost), Dentin and Pulp (innermost). The pulp contains vital blood vessels and nerves and is located in the central portion of the tooth. RCT is needed when the pulp of the tooth becomes inflamed, infected or dies. It becomes infected when bacteria invade it through decay, crack, fracture or traumatic injury. If left untreated it can travel through the roots of the teeth and cause a painful abscess which results in bone destruction.
The most common symptoms are as follows:
Root canal treatment begins with administering a local anesthetic to numb the tooth. Our dentist then uses a rubber dam to isolate the tooth and keep it clean, dry and prevent cross infection. During RCT, the infected/ inflamed pulp is removed by making an opening in the tooth by using burs after removing all the decayed tooth structure. A series of files and other instruments are used to clean and shape the root canals along with irrigating solutions, to prepare the tooth to receive the final root canal filling material. X-rays may be taken during the procedure to inform the dentist of the ongoing process.
