ROOT CANAL TREATMENT
We at Anugrah Dental Clinic strongly believe that the appearance and functionality of a natural tooth can never be matched with any replacement tooth. Perhaps, this is the driving force that has been inducing us to strive and save the natural tooth through root canal treatment. Our dentists treat patients requiring root canal treatments through advanced techniques and treatment procedures.
WHAT IS ROOT CANAL TREATMENT (RCT)?
Every tooth contains a soft tissue called pulp inside them, which acts as the nodal point for blood vessels, connectives tissues and nerves that carry the signals. The soft tissue pulp extends up to the root of the tooth and plays a vital role during the development phase of the tooth. So, when tooth decay is left unattended, it affects the pulp, and penetrates deep into the root and causes inflammation and severe pain. When patients approach us for root canal treatment at our clinic, we always make sure to educate them about the necessity of root canal treatment. The reason – we feel it as an absolute necessity to clear the myths associated with RCT and thereby to reduce the apprehension of our patients.
SYMPTOMS OF RCT
On most of the occasions, root canal inflammation typically presents set of symptoms to indicate the necessity of treatment.
- Chronic pain
- Prolonged sensitivity on both hot and cold conditions
- Difficulty in chewing due to inflammation
- Severe discoloration of tooth
HOW WE SAVE YOUR TOOTH THROUGH RCT?
At Anugrah Dental Clinic, we believe and make sincere efforts to save natural teeth, and hence, we resort to extraction procedure only when the tooth has attained the ‘beyond salvage’ situation. Therefore it is no wonder we adopt the best of practices and deploy the latest gadgets to remove the infected pulp and clean the inner surface of the canal, before closing the exposed parts with a suitable sealant material. Finally, the sealed surface is further protected with a suitable crown or other restoration to render complete functionality and prevent deterioration of the tooth.
CAN ROOT CANAL INFECTION IGNORED?
As tooth decay spreads, it slowly start damaging adjacent teeth too and in no time, leads to a threatening situation which may demand complete extraction. Hence it is highly recommended not to ignore any pain or inflammation in the tooth roots.
