ROOT CANAL TREATMENT (RCT)
Root canal can save your dying tooth and we take life time surety of this procedure
If your teeth is damaged and filling is not possible than it requires Root Canal Treatment and possibly a crown after that. Dr Shikha Goel, one of the best endodontist in South Delhi specialize in root canal treatment has been able to save a lot of teeth from extractions by doing high class fillings and painless low cost root canal treatment.
What is root canal treatment?
Root canal treatment or RCT is one of the most commonly done dental procedures and for some people it remains the most dreaded one. (Dr Shikha provides you with safe anesthesia to provide pain free root canal treatment and make you comfortable.)
In the simplest of terms this procedure consists of cleaning infection inside the tooth using tiny files and rotary system. During this procedure all the living tissue inside the teeth i.e. called pulp (blood vessels + nerves + cellular components) is removed. The remaining hollow structure inside the tooth is then cleaned, reshaped, irrigated and sealed with Gutta Percha. This procedure clears the tooth of all the infection and makes it pain free and preserves its functionality.
Although it sounds simple, RCT is the most sophisticated dental procedure with treatment success depending majorly on the expertise of treating dentist and his armory.
Time required for Root canal treatment
In majority of cases RCT can be completed in 2-3 visits along with Crown. Some cases of intentional RCT can be done in single visit also.
A commonly misunderstood procedure is actually an extremely complicated procedure. Not all candidates of root canal treatment are candidates for a single visit root canal treatment. Dr. Shikha carefully evaluates each case and then decides whether the root canal treatment should be performed in a single visit or not. Cases of intentional RCT like if we want to give a crown or bridge for some cosmetic treatment and teeth is not infected than it can be done in single sitting.
We should all know that most of the teeth that have undergone root canal treatment should be reinforced with a crown (cap) over it else even the root canal would fail over a period of time.
Life of RCT
If you continue to care for your root canal treated tooth with brushing, flossing and regular check-ups it continues to get nutrition from surrounding tissues and could last a lifetime.
