Why is a root canal required?
A healthy tooth inside the tooth under the white enamel is a hard tissue called dentin. Inside the dentin is a soft tissue called pulp. The pulp contains the tooth's nerves and blood vessels. It extends from the crown of the tooth into the teeth' roots if the pulp becomes inflamed or infected, our endodontist will remove it, relieving your pain or discomfort.
Our endodontist will numb the tooth so that you won't feel anything during the procedure.
A small shield isolates the tooth keeping it dry and clean an opening is made through the crown of the tooth, and into the pulp chamber, fluid is put in the canals to kill any bacteria and help rinse out debris.
Then the pulp is removed using small instruments. The endodontist carefully cleans and shapes the canals.
After space is cleaned and shaped the endodontist fills and seals the root canals.
In most cases, a temporary filling is placed to close the opening, your tooth adequately restored with a filling or crown that protects the tooth. This step is essential to ensure the success of your root canal treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions
What will happen if the infection is not treated by root canal?
If the infected tooth root is not treated on time, it will lead to the spread of infection, swelling, abscess and will require tooth extraction.
How Painful is root canal treatment?
The pain you feel is because of infection in the tooth, not because of root canal treatment.
A root canal treatment is done to get rid of pain and is generally performed under local anesthesia. Slowly the tooth and tissues around the root heal after treatment, and pain subsides.
When is root canal treatment needed?
If the pulp becomes infected, the infection may spread through the root canal system of the tooth.Leading to abscess.
An abscess is an inflamed area in which pus collects and can cause swelling of the tissues around the tooth.
If root canal treatment is not carried out, the infection will spread and the tooth may need to be taken out.
What if I don’t have the treatment?
The alternative is to have the tooth out. Once the pulp is destroyed it can’t heal
and it is recommended to not leave an infected tooth in the mouth.
What are the signs that indicate root canal treatment is needed?
You might find that you experience a toothache.
You could also have a tooth that is sensitive to heat or cold or is tender when
touched or when chewing. Discolouration of the tooth and swelling are two other
symptoms you might experience. However, some people might not see or feel any signs.
A tooth that has had root canal treatment often lasts a lifetime, so you keep smiling with confidence.
