What is a Root Canal treatment?
It is a process of removing dead pulp tissue and replacing it with an inert material after thorough cleansing of tooth. Pulp is the centre of your tooth which is the home to its nerve and blood supply.
Root canal therapy is a series of procedures used to address issues with the soft pulp tissue of the tooth, which includes nerves and blood vessels. While some people wrongly believe it is a painful operation, it is usually no more painful than a filling. It is, in reality, one of the most effective treatments for toothaches.
When the pulp tissue of a tooth becomes infected or inflamed, root canal treatment is needed. Pulp tissue is made up of blood vessels, connective tissue, and nerve cells. That is the reason why a problem here can be so painful. The pain can fade away with time, at least temporarily. However, without treatment, the infection can transform into an abscess and can even lead to systemic health problems which are occasionally reported to be fatal.

How is root canal treatment done?
The root canal treatment process usually begins in the same way as a filling and without major discomfort: local anesthesia is given to numb the tooth and the area around it.
- Then, a small opening is made in the surface of the affected tooth in order to reach the pulp cavity and root canals. Tiny instruments, sometimes with the aid of a microscope, are used to remove the dead pulp tissue from the narrow canals of your tooth. The cavity and empty channels are cleaned, disinfected and prepared to receive the filling made of inert and biocompatible material. Finally, adhesive cement is used to seal the opening of the tooth, thus preventing future infections.
- After root canal treatment, your tooth may be slightly tender or sore for a few days. Over-the-counter pain relievers such as ibuprofen are effective in relieving discomfort, but prescription medications can be given if necessary. During this period, it is probably best to avoid biting hard on the affected tooth. However, all these symptoms should be temporary.
- In order for the tooth to be more protected and to fully recover, in general, a crown or other type of restoration is needed. The restoration can be done in several ways: with traditional gold crowns or with dental replicas made of high-tech tooth-colored material. In all cases, you will have made an investment in maintaining your dental health in the future.
