Treat your Tooth at the Root

        A root canal is a treatment used in dentistry to repair and save a tooth that is decayed or infected. In this procedure, the tooth is cleaned and sealed by removing the pulp and nerves inside.  The nerve of a tooth is not vital for the function of the tooth once it has emerged through the gums. The only function of the nerve is to provide the sensation of hot or cold. So, the presence or absence of the nerve will not affect the functioning of the tooth.

 The following are some of the main advantages of root canal treatment:
  • Natural appearance 
  • Protects other teeth from excessive wear or strain 
  • Saving the natural tooth with root canal treatment has many advantages:
  • Efficient chewing
  • Normal biting force and sensation

The Procedure
    Root canal treatment is needed when the root of the tooth gets injured or the tooth root gets damaged due to a large and the root becomes infected or inflamed. The following are the steps of the procedure
  • First, the dentist numbs the tooth and makes an opening through the crown of the tooth to the pulp chamber. 
  • Then the dentist will use special files to clean the infection and unhealthy pulp out of the canals and shapes the canals for the filling material. The dentist uses irrigation to remove the debris and clean the canals.
  •  After that the dentist  fills the canals with a permanent material (mostly this is done with a material called gutta-percha). This filling helps to keep the canals free of contamination or infection.
  •  To seal the opening the dentist will place a temporary filling material is placed on top of the gutta-percha.
  •  This filling is placed until the tooth receives a permanent filling or a crown which looks like a natural tooth will be placed over the top of the tooth.
Step 5: Finally the dentist will place the crown is cemented into the place.
