[su_column size=”1/2″][/su_column]The mere mention of root canal therapy sends a shudder through most patients. However, with advances in modern dental technology and effective use of analgesia, even this most feared of dental treatments has been transformed into a pain-free and acceptable procedure and we are now to save many of the most heavily destroyed teeth and avoid extractions.
Any discomfort associated with root canal treatment is in fact usually felt prior to an intervention by the dentist. Usually, the tooth has died or is dying as a result of extensive decay or trauma. During the dying period the root becomes irritated and this produces the pain that makes most patients seek advice from the dentist. Once the tooth has died the nerve endings and blood vessels in the tooth can become infected and subsequently form an abscess, causing a build-up of pressure and associated pain.
The aim of root canal therapy is to relieve any discomfort, not create it and in fact, we achieve this in a painless and relaxed manner. After gaining access to the tooth, which is simply like having a normal filling, all the canals are cleaned out thoroughly with special antiseptics. The void created is then completely filled up with a plasticized material which renders the whole canal system inert, stable and therefore pain-free.
At Dr. Walia Multispeciality Dental Clinic; the root canal treatment is even simpler due to the use of X-Smart ENDOMOTOR.This superb instrument from Dentsply deals with soundless negotiation of the canals with so less time consumption and so effectively as the chances of failures of root canal treatment touched nil.
The treatment is usually carried out either in a single visit or over two visits. Between appointments, the tooth is dressed temporarily so as to remain pain-free functional in case of two sitting root canal treatment. After the root canal treatment, the tooth can be restored to a natural looking and normal state, usually by crowing, to increase its overall strength and longevity.
