WHAT IS ROOT CANAL ? • Root canal is one of the most commonly treated dental procedures. • Root canal therapy involves removal of the soft tissue below the tooth which is known as PULP. • Pulp is removed because of the development of an infection or any other tooth decay so to save that tooth. • The Pulp contains blood vessels and nerves which are responsible for the growth of tooth. • According to a survey, over 15 million Root Canals are done every year in the United States alone.
Persistent tooth pain due to gum disease or cavity • Sensitivity to hot and cold • Tooth discoloration • Swollen gums • Feel pain while eating or touching the tooth • A cracked tooth SYMPTOMS OF ROOT CANAL
Step 1: Anesthetic • The dentist will apply a small amount of numbing medication on your gum near the affected tooth. Then, an anesthetic will be injected into your gums. You may feel a burning sensation, but won’t last long. • Step 2: Removal of pulp • When your tooth is numb, the dentist will make a small opening on the top of the tooth. Once the infected pulp is exposed, he will carefully remove it. • Step 3: Antibiotics • Once the pulp has been removed, the dentist will coat the area with an antibiotic to ensure that the infection is gone and to prevent reinfection. Once the canals are cleaned, the dentist will fill and seal the tooth with a sealer paste. The dentist may prescribe you oral antibiotics as well. • Step 4: Temporary filling • The dentist will complete the procedure by filling the small opening at the top of the tooth with a soft and temporary material. It will help in the prevention of the canals from being damaged by saliva. ROOT CANAL TREATMENT PROCEDURE
Brush your teeth at least 2 times a day. • Floss between your teeth at least once a day. • Use fluoride toothpaste for good oral health • Visit the dentist for checkups every 6 months. • Have your teeth professionally cleaned by your dentist once in a year during regular dental checkups • Try to limit the amount of sugary food and refined carbohydrates you consume. These foods have a tendency to stick to your teeth and are one of the prime reasons for poor oral health. If you eat sugary foods, try to rinse your mouth or brush your teeth shortly afterward.
