PAINLESS ROOT CANAL TREATMENT

PAINLESS ROOT CANAL TREATMENT

When a tooth become infected or damaged root canal treatment is often the only way to save your tooth and repair the damage. Infection spreads to the bone and tissues and an abscess forms at the roots. The treatment involves clearing the infection after numbing the tooth by a cleaning and disinfecting process of the roots. The root canals are then filled with an inert material and sealed. A crown has to be placed following the treatment to protect the tooth from further damage.

RCT is done when

1.There is decay in the tooth & has reached to the level of nerve in the tooth.
2.There is injury to the teeth and nerve is exposed.
3.There is severe sensitivity to hot and cold due to natural wear of enamel and dentin.
4.Teeth are to be reduced for putting a bridge (in select cases).
5.There is infection beneath the root of the tooth causing swelling & infection.

Pocedure

Is done under local anesthesia. Removal of the decayed tooth part is done with the dental drill to gain access to the nerve. The infected nerve is removed with help of sterile needles(files). Proper cleaning and shaping of root canals is done to make sure no infection is left. Sealing of root canals is done with gutta percha points to prevent future infection. Finally the tooth cavity is filled up with filling material.Complete procedure takes 3-4 sittings on alternate days.

Single Sitting RCT

In select cases RCT can be done in one sitting of around 45-60 minutes & antibiotic coverage is given for 3-5 days. Mild pain killers may me needed.
