Root Canal Treatment Procedure:-

Root canal Treatment in gurgaon is a procedure that is done to remove infected pulp from a tooth to eliminate the infection and to prevent tooth getting infected from future microbial invasion. Root canal treatment (RCT) in dentistry is best known as endodontic treatment.

Various Steps needed to Complete the Root Canal Treatment :

  1. Injection:

Before starting root canal treatment, your dentist will inject a local anaesthetic using nerve block injection. After this injection, you will feel numb near the injection site. It is done to make sure you will not feel any pain during the treatment.

  1. Isolation :

The tooth that requires treatment needs to isolated to prevent contamination from saliva using Rubber dam application. It takes a little extra time to apply rubber dam.

  1. Access Cavity Opening:

Using dental burs and dental air-rotors, your dentist will then prepare access cavity opening to gain access to your pulp chamber and pulp canals. Good access opening is very important to have good visibility of the canal and easy access to pulp chamber. Using advanced "dental Loupes" also improves the visibility.

  1. Cleaning and Shaping Root Canal:

After gaining access to pulp chamber, pulp remanents are removed from pulp chamber. Then root canals are located. Root Canals are irrigated using various medicated material such as Normal Saline & Calcium hydroxide. Root Canals are shaped using Endomotors with rotary files. Handfiles are also used. Working length is determined using Apex locators and IOPA x-ray.

  1. Filling the prepared root canal:

Root Canals are filled using biocompatible material like Gutta percha after cleaning and shaping.

  1. Post operative Restoration:

After filling the root canals with gutta percha, remaining prepared tooth is filled with the restorative material.

After Root Canal Treatment, a artificial cap or crown is placed. Your tooth can now be used for normal function like eating and chewing.

How many times I need to visit a dental clinic to get my RC Treatment Completed?

Endodontic treatment( or RCT ) sometimes can be completed in just one sitting and sometimes it takes multiple visits to complete the procedure to remove any infected pulp and also to save the tooth. Tooth that is infected for longer time needs at least 2- 3 visits to complete the treatment. While intentional RCT may be done in single sitting.

Is Endodontic treatment a painful procedure?

Your dentist or endodontist, a specialist for such treatment, will numb the area of treatment using a local anaesthetic. Your will not feel pain while your dentist will perform the root canal treatment procedure but you may expect slight discomfort after the treatment which eventually will go away. You may be prescribed antibiotic and painkillers to prevent infection and to relieve pain and swelling if there's any.
