Root canal treatment involves the removal of the pulp tissues from the tooth in the event that it gets infected or inflamed.
The pulp can be infected or inflamed due to either deep decay or an extensive restoration that involves the pulp, cracked or fractured tooth due to trauma, excessive wear of enamel and dentine exposing the pulp, and sometimes as a result of severe gum disease. Each tooth contains a canal system extending from the crown (top surface) to the root, housing up to four canals with dental pulp composed of connective tissue, nerves, and blood vessels.
In a root canal procedure, the dentist first administers local anesthesia for patient comfort.
Then, a small access hole is carefully made in the affected tooth to reach the infected pulp chamber.
Using specialized instruments, the dentist removes the damaged pulp, cleans the canal, and shapes it for the filling material.
Next, a biocompatible material is used to seal the canal.
Finally, a crown is placed over the tooth to restore its strength and appearance. This meticulous process allows the dentist to save the natural tooth, providing relief from pain and preserving oral health.
