      What is root canal treatment?

      Root canal treatment or RCT is one of the most commonly done dental procedures: though, for some people it remains the most feared and dreaded one. However, root canal at Goel Dental is done under safe anaesthesia and by using advanced pain management protocols. Thus, leaving you with a painless root canal experience.

      In simple terms root canal consists of cleaning infection and pus inside the tooth by using tiny files through rotary system. During RCT all the living tissue (pulp) inside the teeth consisting of blood vessels, nerves and cellular components is removed. After that roots inside the tooth are cleaned, reshaped, irrigated and sealed with Gutta Percha. Thus RCT clears the tooth of all the infection and make it pain free and preserves its functionality.

      Although it sounds simple, RCT is the most sophisticated dental procedure with treatment success depending entirely on the expertise of treating dentist and his equipment.

      Time required for Root canal treatment

      Most cases of RCT can be completed in 1-3 visits, with each lasting 15-30 minutes. Root canal should not be rushed as it is important that all the infection inside the tooth is cleared and the pain has settled before a tooth is sealed. Only after a tooth has become painless a crown should be given.

      Single sitting root canal treatment is a commonly misunderstood procedure although it is actually an extremely complicated procedure. Not all the teeth destined for 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 as we do before preparing teeth for crown or bridge for cosmetic reasons can be done in a single sitting. Cases with minimal infection, less pain at presentation and less pus collection can be completed in single sitting. Goel Dental has facility for single visit Zirconia crown also available thus a root canal along with crown fitting can also be done by Dr Shikha Goel in single visit.

      Root Canal Treatment vs Tooth Extraction

      It happens that whenever you have been examined by a dentist and he advises extraction or root canal after looking at your Xray, you often have second thoughts which option is better for you and whether you should have a second opinion. As a general rule extraction should be the last option if a tooth can be saved by a Root canal treatment. Root canal procedure works by removing the infection inside the tooth while extraction involves removal of entire tooth along with the infection. Root canal and a crown can reinforce your damaged tooth for years ahead. Extracted tooth will require replacement in the form of a Dental implant or a Bridge or if tooth is not replaced it may cause long term dental problems like loosening of other teeth, shifting of other teeth, and loss of biting force.

      Pain after root canal treatment

      It may be possible that your tooth may pain immediately after root canal or a swelling may occur. It has been observed more in cases of repeat root canal treatment. However a common painkiller is usually given after the procedure for 2-3 days to take care of any pain or discomfort. Pain settles completely in a maximum of 7 days.

      Tooth cap after RCT

      We should all know that most of the teeth that have undergone root canal treatment should be reinforced with a tooth cap (crown) over it, else even a good root canal treatment would fail over a period of time. Cap or dental crown is usually required over back teeth or else it may break while chewing. It is possible at Goel Dental to get a zirconia or a ceramic crown in same day.

      Life of Root Canal Treated Tooth

      If you continue to care for your root canal treated tooth with brushing and flossing it continues to get nutrition from surrounding tissues and could last a lifetime. Regular follow ups and scan at least annually by your dentist can further prolong the life of root canal treated tooth.

      Facilities for advanced root canal procedures like Microscopic root canal treatment , Root surgeries, Apicoectomy, Removal of broken files and Root resection etc is also available at Goel Dental.
