Root canal treatment- Getting your tooth treated before it is too late

Root canal treatment or endodontic treatment or root canal is a dental procedure to treat the infection at the centre of a tooth. This can be well treated by an endodontist, a dentist who specializes in root canal treatment.

When is there a need for root canal treatment?
This treatment is needed when the pulp becomes diseased or inflamed or typically when you see the middle portion of it getting black. In this treatment, the endodontist removes the diseased pulp. Then the pulp chamber and the root canal of the tooth is cleaned and sealed properly. If it is not removed then your tooth may suffer from pain and swelling and there may be a possibility to remove the tooth.

Its causes

  • Injury to the tooth
  • Consistent dental treatments
  • A cracked or broken tooth
  • A deep cavity
Procedure It can be treated by your dentist or an endodontist. In case of a child's tooth treatment, you may refer to a pediatric dentist. Generally, a pediatric dentist has minimum 2 years of extra university training in treating children's oral problems. A general root canal may follow these steps:
  • Your tooth is given a local freezing anesthesia.
  • A rubber dam is placed around the tooth to protect it from the bacteria in the saliva during the treatment.
  • To reach the root canal system and the damaged pulp, the endodontist makes an opening in the tooth.
  • The pulp is then removed by cleaning and enlarging the root cal system with the help of fine dental instruments.
  • Right after the cleaning, the canal is filled and sealed.
  • Then the opening of the tooth is treated. It is also sealed by either filling temporarily or permanently.
Sessions required
It can be treated in 1 or 2 sessions. You may have tender tooth for the first two weeks. If you have some swelling or bad pain consult your dentist or endodontist .this does not have 100% success rate. In some rare cases, a second root canal treatment may be needed. For the retreatment, the material in the root canal is taken out and the canal is cleaned, shaped and filled again. There are chances of getting a cavity or gum disease after the treatment as it does not protect your teeth from all kinds of damage. To avoid any failure, proper dental care should be taken and regular dental visits. Generally, the tooth that has root canal can be saved from getting it pulled out or extracted.

After care
After you are done with the root canal treatment, you do have to take lot of precautionary steps to care of it so that it does not create a problem for you in future.
  • Until, all the treatment sessions are over you should avoid eating any hard food.
  • You should quit smoking, if you do.
  • Avoid too much sugary food in your diet.
  • Maintain good health and oral hygiene.

What Is Tooth Whitening? It's actually a bleaching process that lightens discolorations of enamel and dentin. The system recommended, is to use a mild solution retained in a custom-fitted appliance that is worn over your teeth while you sleep.

Using highly sophisticated computer technology, the shape of your tooth can be digitally photographed and the computer assisted design is relayed to a milling machine.
Technology today is changing our everyday lives. Many people, however, arenít aware that technology also is impacting dentistry in new and exciting ways. Cutting-edge innovations in dental instruments are requiring less time in the dental chair, causing less discomfort and creating satisfying results. One breakthrough instrument, called Cerec 3D, allows dentists to quickly restore damaged teeth with natural-colored ceramic filling, saving patients time and inconvenience.
