What is root canal treatment?
Root canal treatment is a procedure that saves and restores teeth with infected or inflamed tissues inside the root canals. The access is made through a carious portion of teeth from where a small instrument called an ‘endodontic file’ is inserted. This tool removes all infected material inside the root canal and cleans it to make way for the safe circulation of blood. For a severely damaged or diseased tooth root canal treatment is considered as a” life-saving” treatment. The endodontist at Bhardwaj Clinic will always recommend a tooth canal to avoid tooth extraction for the natural smile to be intact.

The natural cavity at the center of the tooth is referred to as the” root canal”. The root canal has soft tissue called pulp and the tooth’s nerves. Infection or inflammation is caused if bacteria or debris enter this area or in extreme cases, an abscess.
Like many other dental procedures root canal has also got the benefit of technological advancement and improved standard of materials. Before the actual procedure is performed all the options are discussed and also the use of anesthesia to make sure the comfortability of the patients.
Why is root canal treatment needed?
Root canal treatment is defined as the process of removal of infected pulp from the inside of the root canals. If this infection is not removed, it will spread throughout the rest of your teeth and even to your jaws.
What does root canal treatment involve?
The first part in treating a tooth with an abscess or infection is to remove the decay or damage so that you can then disinfect and seal off this damaged area. This may involve a simple filling; however, if there are complications such as bridges, crowns or dental fillings in more than one or two sides (called multi-sided cavities) surgical procedures may be necessary to prepare these cavities for endodontic therapy (root canal). After the filling is complete, the dentist may place a crown, which in effect “seals” off this area from future decay.
If root canal therapy is necessary, your tooth will be numbed by using a local anesthetic after the area has been prepared to receive the dental instruments that will be used to clean out the pulp and root canals of your tooth. Your dentist then uses special instruments that have been developed specifically for this type of procedure. These instruments are called files (or rotary files) and they come in different sizes to fit into smaller or larger spaces within the root canal space. The dentist must also use a small drill that has diamond tips on it so as not to harm any remaining sound tooth structure such as supporting bone or other teeth structure. The dentist will then remove the pulp tissue and any infection or diseased tissue. Once complete, a special filling material is placed in the empty space that has been cleaned of all infected material, and in some cases, small artificial roots are used to help support the tooth. These procedures may take anywhere from two to three hours on average.

How Long Will the Restored Tooth Last?
The tooth or teeth you have treated and restored will last for a long time provided you take care of it. Since tooth decay is still able to occur even in the teeth of a patient regular oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups are essential to avoid further issues.
Because there isn’t an internal pulp that keeps the tooth healthy, teeth treated with root canals can become more fragile and more likely to break. This is a major consideration when deciding whether or not to crown the tooth following the root canal procedure.
To evaluate the effectiveness or failure of root canal therapy The most trusted approach is to examine newly taken images with the ones that were taken before treatment. This test will determine if bone remains lost or is being replaced.
