Root Canal Treatment

Endodontic Therapy

Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic therapy, is a dental procedure used to treat a diseased or damaged tooth. The procedure involves removing the infected or inflamed pulp tissue from inside the tooth, cleaning and shaping the root canals, and filling them with a biocompatible material. This process can help to relieve pain, prevent further infection, and save the affected tooth from extraction.

Root canal treatment is typically recommended for teeth that have suffered extensive decay, trauma, or infection. Symptoms that may indicate the need for root canal treatment include severe toothache, sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures, swelling, and tenderness around the affected tooth.

The procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia to minimize discomfort, and most patients can return to normal activities within a day or two. After the root canal treatment, the affected tooth may be restored with a filling or a dental crown to protect and strengthen it.

Why it's needed

The infection at the centre of a tooth (the root canal) is caused by bacteria that live in the mouth and invade the tooth.

Tooth Structure

A tooth is made up of 2 parts. The crown is the top part of the tooth that’s visible in the mouth. The root extends into the bone of the jaw, anchoring the tooth in position.

When root canal treatment is needed

Root canal treatment is needed when dental X-rays show that the pulp has been damaged by a bacterial infection. The pulp may become inflamed if it’s infected by bacteria, allowing the bacteria to multiply and spread.

The symptoms of a pulp infection include:

As the infection progresses, these symptoms often disappear as the pulp dies. Your tooth then appears to have healed, but the infection has in fact spread through the root canal system.
