Root Canal Treatment is a common dental procedure administered to over 15 million people yearly in India. Also known as endodontic treatments, 

Endodontic treatments cause lesser pain compared to tooth extractions and carry little risk with an average success rate of over 92%. Before you undergo such a procedure it can help to understand how it works.

What is a Root Canal?

Each tooth has a visible, hard surface called enamel on its surface, but that does not mean they are indestructible. Beneath this shining white armour (Enamel) is bony tissue (Dentin), and beneath that is a soft, mushy, hyper-sensitive interior (Pulp). 

Dentists call this interior the pulp, and it’s made of nerves & blood vessels that allow us to feel the sensations on our teeth. Beneath these three visible components, each tooth is embedded deeply inside the gums (Gingiva).

The root channel through which the tooth’s nerves connect with the rest of the body is called the Root Canal.

What is Root Canal Treatment?

Tooth decay happens when bacteria on the surface of the teeth emit harmful acids that break down the tooth’s hard armour. This infection starts with food left behind due to bad oral hygiene. 

Left on its own, it damages the tooth and leads to dental cavities. These cavities are permanent holes caused by deterioration. If this damage is limited to the first two layers, it can be treated with various procedures, like fillings, crowns, or veneers. 

Once the decay reaches the pulp, it requires a more severe treatment. The dentist has to expose and remove the infected pulp from the affected tooth. This dental procedure which removes the infected tissue is called Root Canal Treatment.

When is Root Canal Treatment necessary?

This dental care procedure becomes necessary under various circumstances. 

  1. If you feel intense pain in your tooth when chewing, biting, or applying any kind of pressure over a long time. The treatment can help give relief to the patient and put them at ease.
  2. When a dental infection reaches the pulp but has not penetrated deep enough to infect the whole tooth. This treatment can save the natural tooth without having to remove it entirely.
  3. When the tooth gets damaged the vulnerable pulp can get infected easily. A root canal treatment can clear out only the infected area and restore the tooth’s structure.
  4. If a dental abscess begins to form around the tooth’s base, it is typically caused by an infection. This is a pocket of puss that causes severe pain. It can also be treated with this procedure.

A Root Canal Treatment can save the healthy part of the tooth while removing the infected area. It provides immediate pain relief to the patient and is a reliable, safe, & long-term solution. 

What are the Steps of a Root Canal Treatment?

Health Square Dental Clinic has successfully administered over 100 endodontic treatments that rival the best dentist in Jaipur. Here is what you can expect if you book one with us:

Step 1: Identification

We carefully identify the extent of the damage using the best equipment available. Using a safe and accurate digital X-ray, we find out exactly how far the infection has spread.

Step 2: Preparing The Area 

The proper dose of anaesthesia is applied to ensure a smooth procedure with as little pain as possible. A cavity is made in the tooth to reach the root canal for treatment.

Step 3: Disinfection

Addressing the root cause of the issue, the tooth’s exposed interior is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected at this point. The root canal is shaped and cleaned once more.

Step 4: Filling 

Now that the infection has been removed and the painful part is over, the hollowed-out tooth is properly filled with gutta-percha to keep bacteria out & act as an adhesive.

Step 5: Restoration & Crown

Once the restorative procedures are finished, a crown is placed on top of the treated tooth. This adds strength & shape to the tooth and is custom-shaped to match the exact needs.
