Each tooth has one root with a root canal to nourish the tooth. The canal contains pulp which is made up of nerves, connective tissue, and blood vessels. When the pulp gets injured or becomes inflamed or infected due to a deep tooth cavity or traumatic dental injury, a tooth can be very painful.

What is root canal treatment?

Root canal treatment is the removal of the nerve and blood vessels of a tooth to try to save the tooth from extraction. A simple analogy is removing the wick from a candle. The void where the wick was is cleaned and smoothed and then we place a rubber-type material into the cleaned out space to seal the canal.

6 Warning Signs You Might Need Root Canal Treatment 

  • Persistent sensitivity to sweets foods
  • Constant sensitivity to cold food or drinks
  • Severe pain when biting or chewing
  • Swelling of the gum with pus discharge near the affected tooth
  • Facial swelling
  • Broken down tooth

Root Canal Treatment Procedure [step-by step]

At the point when a patient visits our Clinic, with the above symptoms, we promptly settle on a periapical x-ray to analyze the problem in detail and confirm the diagnosis:

  • Step 1:- The first step in a root canal is gaining access to the chamber that has the nerve. This is finished by making a little opening on the top point of the tooth. It very well may be done under a local anesthetic agent. The length of the root canal is defined and the infected pulp is eliminated.
  • Step2: – In a similar visit, or during the following visit, the canal is reshaped, where your nerve is located and prepared to do complete a root canal filling substance. The number of visits important for finishing your root canal depends on different factors like various nerves in the tooth, the condition of infection, and the complications related to the procedure.
  • Step3:- The last advance in your root canal is fixing the root canal with the help of a sterile, plastic material known as gutta-percha. This is for avoiding potential infections. Whenever treated in the beginning time, root canal treatment is very comfortable. With the utilization of nearby anaesthetics, the whole procedure turns out to be very painless.

Questions & Answers

What is root canal treatment?

Root canal treatment is the removal of the nerve and blood vessels of a tooth for the purpose of trying to save the tooth from extraction. A simple analogy is removing the wick from a candle. The void where the wick was is cleaned and smoothed and then we place a rubber type material into the cleaned out space to seal the canal.

What is the dental pulp?

The pulp is the soft tissue that contains nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue. It lies within the tooth and extends from within the crown of the tooth (that portion of the tooth that is visible) to the tip of the root in the bone of the jaws.

What happens if the pulp gets injured?

When the pulp is diseased or injured and can’t repair itself, it dies. The most common cause of pulp death is a cracked tooth or a deep cavity. Both of these problems can let germs (bacteria) enter the pulp. Germs can cause an infection inside the tooth. Left without treatment, pus builds up at the root tip, in the jawbone, forming a “pus-pocket” called an abscess. An abscess can cause damage to the bone around the teeth.

Why does the pulp need to be removed?

When the infected pulp, which is made up of blood vessels and nerves, is not removed, pain and/or swelling can result. Some elements of the infection can injure your jaw bones and the resulting bacteria may enter your bloodstream. Without treatment, your tooth may have to be removed. In severe cases, you might need to be hospitalized due to an infection throughout your body.

What does treatment involve?

Treatment often involves from one to three visits. During treatment, the diseased pulp gets removed. The pulp chamber and root canal(s) of the tooth are then cleaned and they are filled with a rubber type material that seals the tooth so that no germs enter the tooth.

Here's how your tooth is saved through treatment:

First, an opening is made through the top of the tooth into the pulp chamber. The pulp is then removed. The root canal(s) is cleaned and smoothed. Medications may be put in the root canal(s) to help get rid of germs and prevent infection. If the treatment requires more than one visit, a temporary filling will be placed in the crown opening to protect the tooth between appointments or we may leave the tooth open for a few days to drain. If a prescription is provided, please follow the directions. On the subsequent appointment, the temporary filling is removed and the pulp chamber and root canal(s) are cleaned and filled and the root canal treatment is completed. However, if we advise you that your tooth requires a crown, you need to return to our office for that procedure.
