Root Canal Treatment Root Canal Treatment in Bhayli Endodontist in Bhayli

The outer portion or Crown of a tooth is a three-layered structure namely – Enamel, Dentin & Pulp. If they limit the tooth decay to the first two layers, we can correct it with Filling/ Restoration. If the tooth decay reaches the third layer and causes inflammation or infection of pulp, we will need to perform a Root Canal Treatment or Endodontic Treatment.

Endodontists perform (RCT), also known as Endodontic Treatment, when the tooth decay reaches the pulp (innermost layer of the tooth) causing inflammation. It is necessary to save the damaged tooth from extraction. A Root Canal Specialist, who is an Endodontist, performs this procedure.. The procedure involves:

  • Removal of infected tooth material
  • Cleaning and disinfection
  • Filling and dealing with an inert material
  • Restoration and crown/cap
It is a multi-step procedure and may require multiple sittings.

Root Canal Treatment is done on a damaged or infected tooth. Infection could be due to a cracked tooth, deep decay, gum diseases or maybe due to repeated dental treatment on a particular tooth. It becomes extremely important to get the Root Canal Treatment as:

  • It stops the infection from spreading and will then save the tooth from extraction
  • RCT relieved the pain caused due to inflammation
  • The most common symptom that one might need Root Canal Treatment is a toothache. The pain can range from mild to severe. With time, it may worsen, and you will feel the pain even when you bite your food.
  • The other reason is prolonged sensitivity. If you feel sensations in your tooth while consuming something hot or cold, then there is the slightest chance that one needs to undergo Root Canal Treatment.
  • Swelling in the gums can also be a sign that you need Root Canal Treatment.

  • Step 1:
  • The very first step involves an X-ray which is taken to determine the extent and approach to infection. The doctor administers local anesthesia, if required, before starting the treatment.

  • Step 2:
  • The next step is Cavity Preparation. We prepared the cavity, making sure all the infected tooth material or previous filling material was removed and a proper approach to inner-part of the tooth (pulp) was established.

  • Step 3:
  • This is followed by disinfection and shaping of pulp canals. The dentists cleared the infected pulp out completely and shaped and cleaned the canals. We achieved thorough disinfection.

  • Step 4:
  • Clean and disinfected canals are then sealed and filled with an inert rubber-like filling material known as Gutta-Percha.

  • Step 5:
  • The very last step is restoration & crown. The crown portion of the tooth cavity is then restored with a filling, followed by a Cap/Crown cementation.

Post-treatment care for root canal

  • Do not put pressure on the tooth. Since there is no crown, the tooth is unprotected as a result, putting pressure can cause damage to the tooth.
  • Avoid hard and crunchy food, instead chew soft food until final restoration
  • Be careful while brushing. Do not be too harsh while brushing
  • Get a dental crown as soon as possible as this will protect your tooth from further damage
  • Visit your dentist if you face any complexities or severe pain

Can An Infected Tooth Heal Itself?

No, an infected tooth cannot heal itself. In fact, the infection can spread to other areas of your jaw causing serious pain. Treating an infected tooth requires medications or root canal treatment. For getting an RCT, book your appointment with Aries Oro-Facial Dental Clinic & Implant Center.

Do Root Canals Procedures Hurt A Lot?

No, a root canal treatment is pain-free. Before proceeding with the root canal treatment, a dentist will use local anaesthesia to numb the infected area ensuring a painless treatment.

How Long Does It Take To Heal?

Once the root canal treatment is completed, the treated tooth will heal within a few days. Patients might experience some pain once they awaken from anaesthesia; this is likely to end within a few days due to medication.

Can One Get RCT Done In A Day?

Most root canal treatment can be successfully completed by a dentist in a single day. In certain cases of serious infection or back tooth, a dentist may give 2-3 days appointment for finishing the treatment.
