Root canal treatment
What is Root Canal Treatment?
When a tooth is infected and painful, to save and preserve the tooth, a root canal treatment is done. It removes the infected areas of the tooth and the nerves and blood vessels inside the tooth (pulp) and the tooth is filled and sealed. The word root canal self explains. it mean treating the canals of the root of the tooth.
When does one need it?
Any infection or trauma that affects the pulp of the tooth is a prequel to a root canal treatment. It can be a fracture or discolouration of the tooth due to an accident, deep cavities or accidental trauma caused by a dentist. any such case needs immediate root canal treatment.
How long does it take?
Generally a complete root canal treatment takes 3-5 appointments but they can vary depending on the extent of infection and pain. If there is no infection, it can be done in a single sitting as well. Single sitting Root canal treatment (Single visit RCT) is a technique sensitive procedure and one needs to have multiple digital equipment to support it.
Are there any alternatives?
Another solution can be extraction followed by placement of a new tooth but it is always better to save a natural tooth if possible.
