WHAT IS RCT?
A root canal is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth from extraction that is badly decayed or becomes infected. During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed.
- The very first step involves an X-ray which is taken to determine the extent and approach to infection. If required local anesthesia is administered before starting the treatment.
- This is followed by disinfection and shaping of pulp canals. The infected pulp is cleared out completely, canals are shaped and cleaned. Thorough disinfection is achieved.
- Clean and disinfected canals are then sealed and filled with an inert rubber-like filling material known as Gutta-Percha.
- If you feel pain in the tooth, including tooth aches, throbbing pains and sharp pains
- If you feel sensitivity in the tooth when you apply a pressure on it while eating or brushing or while passing hot or cold air.
- Swelling and tenderness in nearby gums are also a sign that you need a Root Canal Treatment on that tooth.
