Don’t delay the treatment because of fear of pain. Our Specialists provide pain-free ROOT CANAL TREATMENT (RCT), quick and efficient treatments.
Most of the RCTs that are performed today are single visits, but multiple visits may be required in some cases (like active pus drainage/ large infection).
WHAT IS ROOT CANAL TREATMENT (RCT)?
In common language, root canal treatment is most commonly done on a decayed tooth where the infection has reached the nerves and blood supply of the tooth. The nerves of such teeth become inflamed and irritated causing pain. It may also lead to swelling if left untreated. This treatment saves your natural tooth from being removed.
WHY IS ROOT CANAL TREATMENT NEEDED?
There are various reasons as to why a tooth will go for root canal treatment. The first and foremost would be deep decay in the tooth, it is also done in cases where a tooth has chipped off/ cracked till the level of nerves or due to trauma to the face leading to injury to the nerves of teeth. Another reason could be a large deep filling which over time may require RCT if pain and/ or swelling occurs.
HOW IS IT DONE?
In this treatment, the dentist first numbs the tooth by giving local anesthesia following which a hole is drilled in the tooth and infected nerves and tissue inside the tooth are removed and the area is cleaned thoroughly. Once cleaned, the canals in the tooth are filled and sealed.
- With all the advancements in the field of dentistry, this procedure is no longer painful and prolonged. There are various kinds of anesthesia and equipment to make the procedure comfortable and quick.
- A root canal-treated tooth can typically last a lifetime if maintained well but, in some cases, due to certain factors it may get re-infected and in such cases, a re-root canal is done to save the tooth.
- This treatment has a very high success rate and helps to keep your natural teeth in your mouth in a healthy manner.
- We provide single sitting RCTs wherever possible and only a root canal specialist will work on such a case. Few cases may require additional 1 or 2 sittings due to severe infection and you will be intimated for the same timely.
