Most people think that root canal treatment is painful but it’s not the treatment that’s painful rather the bad/decayed teeth and the infection is the reason for pain. Today we will discuss about Root Canal Therapy – Not painful as you think.
First question is what is the procedure of root canal or how it’s executed and after knowing the answer we say/think damn that would be painful but trust us it is not painful that you think or told. A root canal procedure is painless due to modern procedures and medicines.
When and why do we need a Root Canal Therapy?
When the inside of the tooth that called as pulp & root canal becomes inflamed or infected one needs Root Canal Treatment. The causes are deep decay, repeated dental procedures on the tooth, crack or large chip in the tooth, faulty crowns, trauma to a tooth especially in front teeth. If pulp inflammation or infection is left untreated, it can cause pain or lead to an abscess.
What actually is a root canal?
Infected or inflamed pulp is removed, root canal cleaned,shaped & disinfected with special sets of instruments. Then cleaned & disinfected canal filled with material called gutta-percha with root canal sealant. Afterward, the tooth is restored with white colored composite material.
What is the procedure for Root Canal Therapy?
There are three basic steps of Root Canal Therapy
Step 1 : A small access cavity is prepared in the tooth and the root canal is cleared and disinfected. Then the tooth is temporarily closed with temporary filling.
Step 2 : After the tooth infection subside, a bio compatible material is placed in the canal with sealer. Then temporary filling placed while you await the completion of your permanent restoration. In our clinic as a permanent restoration we use composite tooth colored material.
Step 3 : Once tooth becomes asymptomatic and no further problems are seen, a permanent restoration of composite tooth colored filling will be placed. A crown may be placed depending upon your individual case.
