Endodontic treatment is all about retaining your existing teeth by means of certain dental procedures. You must have heard people talking about getting a root canal treatment. RCT is an endodontic procedure. At our clinic we have on board with us renowned endodontists of the town to relieve you from your dental procedures.
Our teeth are supported by a root and a crown. Any infection affecting the root of the tooth thus causing pain, needs to be treated by a root canal treatment. Root canal is the root portion of the tooth that consists of pulp i.e. the nerve of the tooth. In a root canal treatment, the infected pulp is taken out by means of endodontic instruments, the cavity is then washed thoroughly to remove any infected debris and then filled up by a biocompatible material.
The word root canal treatment seems to frighten us, but with all the latest equipment and our eminent dental surgeons, root canal treatment is nothing but a cakewalk. It is absolutely painless and a permanent solution to relieve your pain and retain the existing tooth at the same time.
We also offer single sitting root canal treatment, which means the whole RCT procedure is completed in a single visit. It not just reduces the treatment time, but also relieves you from visiting your dentist multiple times for the procedure.
We also offer post and core treatment. Let us get to know a bit about post and core procedure.
Post and core treatment is done to restore a tooth that has very less tooth structure left. Post is inserted into a prepared root canal over which a crown is then attached.
Post and core treatment is a highly sophisticated dental procedure. In our clinic, we even practise rotary endodontics. Rotary endodontics involves using rotary handpieces and other equipment. These not only enhances the accuracy of the procedure but are also more comfortable for the patients.
We have all the latest equipment and the best dental surgeons on board with us. so, when you visit us you can be rest assured to receive the premium quality dental treatment in a very comfortable environment.
Depending on the severity of the infection, the doctor may prescribe an antibiotic for the infection prior to performing the actual procedure.
The root canal procedure then begins with the administration of a local anesthetic. Next, the doctor removes the damaged or infected nerve tissue and fills the infected root with an antibiotic to treat any remaining infection. The tooth root is then packed with filling material. Finally, the tooth is capped with a crown to protect it, because of weakness and instability resulting from damage caused by the infection.
The entire process typically takes place over 2-3 visits.
The main objective of performing root canal therapy is to eliminate bacteria from the infected root canal or remove inflamed pulp tissue and close it with a biologically acceptable filling material. If this treatment managed well, regardless of the number of visits, it will create a favorable environment for healing.
The advancements & latest equipments in dentistry increase the incidence of single visit root canal treatment in the dental clinics and provide less stressful session with one anesthesia. This makes it very well accepted by the patient.
