Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment is the removal of the tooth’s pulp, a small thread-like tissue in the center of the tooth. It is advised by Dental Surgeons when the tooth is totally decayed or infected. Years ago teeth with diseased or injured pulps were extracted. With the advent of root canal treatment, many teeth can now be saved.

Indications for Root Canal Treatment:
  • Cracked tooth
  • Deep cavity
  • Injury to a tooth
Steps in a Root Canal Treatment:
  • Diagnosis by clinical examination and x-ray
  • Opening the root canal under local anesthesia
  • The diseased pulp is removed, canals are cleaned and shaped.
  • Canals are then filled permanently with a tapered rubbery material called gutta-percha and sealed.
  • Placing a crown on the tooth to prevent fracture.

A properly done root canal with a cap can last for a lifetime. This procedure is painless as it is done under local anesthesia.
