ROOT CANAL TREATMENT
Painless Protection for your Tooth
If you are having continuous pain because of a decayed tooth, then the time has come that you should get your Root Canal Treatment (RCT) done and move on!.
WHAT IS A ROOT CANAL TREATMENT?
Root Canal Treatment is also known as endodontic treatment. RCT is recommended when the layer beneath the Enamel and the hard layer Dentin lies a soft tissue known as PULP is infected or inflamed. The PULP consists of blood vessels, nerves and other connective tissues that help in the growth of the roots (of the tooth). When the pulp gets infected then the RCT is required where the infected pulp is removed, the area is cleaned, filled and sealed. The process helps in retaining your natural tooth and also makes it stronger.
MISCONCEPTIONS OF ROOT CANAL TREATMENT
“Root Canal Treatment” has various mis-conceptions, one being that it is a very painful process, but let us tell you that it’s a painless process and even if you encounter little bit of pain during the process then too it will be nothing in front of the pain that you have been enduring for days because of tooth decay. Trust us! You will be relieved with the immense pain that you have been bearing.
Just because you have been bearing the pain of tooth decay doesn’t mean that you will have to go through the same while lying on a dental chair. There has been a huge advancement in modern day dentistry. A lot of tools and technologies have come to your rescue. We use Anesthesia to numb the area surrounding the decayed tooth so as to keep you comfortable in your chair while the treatment goes.
WHY YOU SHOULD GET A RCT?
There are many advantages of getting RCT done first being that you are instantly relieved of the pain that you have been enduring for the past many days, or months. The second advantage is that RCT helps in retaining your strong natural tooth and you will be able to maintain it for the longer run also. If you are going to have a RCT done then that means that the pulp inside your is infected and inflamed, which clearly means that if you do not go for RCT, then in the near future you might have to get your tooth extracted.
So, you see RCT helps in retaining your natural teeth, and makes them stronger and maintainable in the longer run. The third advantage is that the treatment is not that costly. If you will enquire about the monetary value involved then you will come to know that it is in fact the cheapest treatment. The fourth advantage is that it not only improves the condition of the infected tooth but also protects the surrounding tooth from infection adding to the overall oral health. The fifth point is that people generally avoid getting the RCT done because they think, or they might have heard that you will have to visit multiple times and there are multiple sittings then the process is complete. But that is not the case anymore the whole process is completed in 2 to 3 visits and the recovery is also very fast.
STEPS TO A RCT
- When we do RCT we can’t really say how many sitting it would require for the whole procedure. The number of sittings depend on the severity of the infection.
- Generally the process is completed within 2 to 3 days!
- In case of severe infection first we get an X-ray done to see how deep the infection has penetrated, if we can save the tooth or not.
- Once we get the X-ray and we see that the pulp has been infected and there are chances that we can restore the original tooth, we go with RCT.
- During RCT we give anesthesia to numb the area surrounding the infected tooth so that you are comfortable in your chair.
- After that we remove the infected pulp, clean the area properly, we add fillings in the area from where we have removed the infected pulp and then we seal it and then we add natural colored crown (same color as that of your tooth) on top of it.
