Root canal treatment is often considered awful and painful. But that’s not true. In fact living with an infected tooth is more painful than not getting the treatment done due to fear or anxiety associated with the same.

What is a root canal treatment or RCT as you may have heard?

A tooth contains a soft core called dental pulp. This comprises nerves and blood vessels. If the tooth is decayed and infection from bacteria has reached to its core, a root canal treatment is suggested. The infection can also spread from infected gum region and in such scenario also it is likely to be suggested.

In root canal treatment the infection is removed from the pulp of tooth root, cleaned and filled with bio-compatible material.

 

Who needs a root canal treatment?

Following may be your sign/ symptoms

  • Persisting long term sensitivity to hot or cold.

  • Gum swelling or pus draining around that tooth.

  • Discoloration of the tooth.

  • Tenderness in biting from that tooth.

 

How many appointments it would take?

This varies in individuals, depending on the level of infection. Our Endodontist (root canal specialist) do single sitting root canal treatment as well. However if the infection is more, it may take 2-3 sittings.

The idea is to achieve infection free tooth and our specialists plan and execute the appointments as per the individual requirement.

 

Is crown replacement always needed post root canal?

Yes!! Post root canal treatment, the tooth becomes weak as the tooth structure needs to cut in order to get rid of the infected pulp.

So, after root canal treatment, you should always get the crown done as your dentist suggests it. The crown strengthens the tooth and resists any trauma. If you delay, it might lead to breakage of your teeth
