Root Canal Treatments
Deep cavities and injury to the teeth leading to discoloration or acute pain and infection might need root canal treatments so as eliminate infection and relieve pain. Esthetix Dental offers Single sitting root canal treatments using advanced expertise and rotary techniques, thus relieving your pain with minimal discomfort within the least possible time.
When do we need root canal treatment?
When there is a kind of infection in the tooth or inflammation in the roots of the tooth, root canal treatment is recommended so as to remove the infection and pain and at the same time save the invaluable natural teeth.
Esthetix Dental has experienced Endodontists, dentists specialised in root canal treatments .This procedure is done under local anaesthesia and involves removal of infectious pulp which is present inside the tooth, cleaning up and shaping of the root canal. Root canal procedure is ended by filling up the root canals and restoring the lost tooth structures by means of inlays, onlays or crowns and bridges.
Innovation in the Root Canal system
Like the roots of the plants, our teeth also have one main branch and different sub-branches. Every branch needs to be sealed after the completion of the root canal on the tooth. This needs a great deal of precision. At Esthetix we use digital technology to accurately image and diagnose root and canal problems before starting the whole procedure. We also use some ultrasonic instruments to remove the dirt and infection present inside the tooth and seal them again so as to prevent any recurrence of infection.
Root canal treatment is indeed very beneficial and unavoidable in many circumstances. So do not neglect the health of your teeth. A root canal will indeed save your teeth and give you back a happy and glowing smile.
Post operative instructions to patients after root canal treatment /RCT:
1.Root canal therapy can take 1-2 appointments to complete. After each appointment when anesthetic has been
used, your lips, teeth and tongue may be numb for several hours. Avoid chewing on the side of the treated
tooth until the numbness has completely worn off.
2.A temporary filling is placed by your dentist to protect the tooth between appointments.
Between appointments, it is common for a small portion of your temporary filling to wear away or break off.
3.To protect the tooth and help keep your temporary in place:
·Avoid chewing sticky foods (especially gum).
·Avoid biting hard foods and hard substances, such as ice, fingernails and pencils.
·If possible, chew only on the opposite side of your mouth.
4.It is normal to experience some discomfort for several days after a root canal therapy appointment, especially
when chewing. It is not uncommon for a tooth to be uncomfortable or even exhibit a dull ache immediately
after receiving root canal therapy. This should subside within a few days (or even weeks). Even if you were
not experiencing any discomfort prior to treatment, it is normal for you to experience some degree of discomfort
for a few days after. The tenderness is normal and is no cause for alarm.
5.To control discomfort, take pain medication as recommended by your dentist. If antibiotics are
prescribed, continue to take them for the indicated length of time, even if all symptoms and signs of
infection are gone.
6. It is important to continue to brush and floss normally.
7.Usually, the last step after root canal treatment is the placement of a crown on the tooth. A crown covers and
protects the tooth from breaking in the future. Unless otherwise noted by the dentist, it is critical to have a
crown placed on your root canal therapy treated tooth as soon as possible.
Delay in obtaining final restoration (crown) may result in fracture and/or possible loss of the tooth.
