ROOT CANAL TREATMENT-THINGS TO KNOW
There is a procedure known as a root canal treatment that can repair and solve the fix which has
been damaged or infected badly. Also known as endodontic therapy, there comes less
requirement of removing the teeth as the endodontist makes an effort to treat the condition. This
kind of treatment proves to be painless and often leaves the patient with less uneasiness at the
time of recovery as compared to the condition when they have their natural tooth extracted. For a
Tooth’s health and function, after it has emerged through the gums, one of the vital elements
required is the nerve of the tooth. Its function is to deliver the sensation of hot or cold and its
presence and absence will not affect the everyday functioning of the tooth.
When a condition takes place of the tooth’s nerve being damaged, it breaks down and the
appearance of bacteria arises within the pulp chamber. The presence of bacteria along with other
debris can bring chances of infection or abscessed tooth. An abscess can be understood as a pus-
filled pocket that forms at the end of the tooth’s root. There will be a presence of an abscess
when the infection spreads all the way past the ends of the tooth’s root.
There will be some steps in which root canal treatment will be done. Firstly, there will be a
procedure for cleaning the root canal. The patient will be provided local anesthesia and the
practitioner will make a small access hole on the tooth’s surface and eliminate the diseased or
dead pulp tissue with very tiny files. After that, he or she will clean, shape and disinfect the
hollow area with the help of tiny files and irrigation solutions. When this process is done, the
tooth will be filled with a rubber-like material with the help of an adhesive cement for
completely sealing the canals. When the therapy of the root canal is done, the tooth will be
considered dead. There will not be a feeling of any pain in the teeth because its nerve along with
the infection has been eliminated.
Though the tooth will act to be more easily broken as compared to the prior state. A tooth having
no pulp must obtain its sustenance from those ligaments that fasten that tooth to be bone. This
supply is however sufficient but as the time passes, the tooth will be more brittle due to which
there will be a requirement of a filling or a crown for the protection. One important thing for the
patient referred by the dentist until the crown or filling is placed is that he or she must not chew
or bite on using that tooth. When the procedure of a filling or a crown is done, the patient is able
to use the tooth as normal.
