Dental pain can take many forms and can seriously impact upon your quality of life. Symptoms can include sensitivity to hot or cold foods, sharp pain when biting down on food or even a dull aching pressure in the jaw. If you are feeling discomfort or pain, this may be a sign that you require Endodontic treatment (Root Canal Treatment).
Endodontic treatment (Root Canal Treatment) is the process of removal of the tooth’s pulp, a small thread-like tissue in the center of the tooth. Root Canal Treatment is advised by dental surgeons when the tooth is totally decayed or infected. Years ago, teeth with diseased or injured pulps were extracted but with the arrival of root canal treatment, many teeth can now be saved.
Endodontic treatment (Root Canal Treatment) is a means of saving a tooth that may be damaged by fracture, infection or decay. The purpose is to restore the tooth and surrounding tissues to health, relieving both dental pain and infection. Without Endodontic treatment the only other alternative is to have the infected tooth removed, and so replace it with either an implant, a fixed bridge or a removable denture. None of these alternatives is anywhere near as effective as being able to actually keep the original tooth.
Indications for Root Canal Treatment:
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.
Why do I need to see an endodontist/root canal specialist?
An endodontist is a dentist who is a specialist in root canal therapy, one who has undergone specialist training to perform root canal therapy to a higher standard. The endodontists work with specialises instruments, under magnification to treat the most complicated cases thoroughly and effectively. A regular dentist can perform simple root canal treatment/procedures, but for complex cases the best results can only be achieved by an endodontist. We have highly trained and specialist endodontists that can provide excellent root canal treatment in Kharghar.
