Root canal treatment (RCT) is a fairly simple and straightforward procedure to relieve dental pain and save your teeth once infection reaches the nerve (pulp) within a tooth.
RCT involves removing the infected/dead nerves from the pulp of the affected tooth and sealing the cavity with dental material to prevent the infection from spreading.
This allows your dentist to restore and save a badly infected damaged tooth instead of extracting it.
Root canal treatment usually takes between 1 to 3 sessions to complete. During the treatment, one of our dentists will:
If you are suffering from an infected tooth, tooth extraction should be the last option to consider. However, it leaves a gap between teeth which causes other issues.
Root canal treatment helps you preserve the natural arrangement of your teeth and you don’t have to worry about lost space and bone structure.
A root canal involves the removal of the infected pulp followed by cleaning the affected area, filling it with dental adhesive and preparing it for the crown.
A tooth-coloured crown, made out of high-quality material, helps restore the functionality of the tooth as well as its aesthetic appeal.
If the infection from the pulp comes out of the infected tooth, it could easily spread to adjacent teeth, if not promptly addressed.
A root canal is thus necessary to clear the infection that carries the harmful bacteria within the bone, and therefore stops the growth and spread of this bacteria.
With missing teeth, your jawbone could easily degenerate over time due to various factors such as bacteria exposure.
Unlike tooth extraction, root canal treatment protects your tooth and leaves it intact, therefore, helping maintain the structure of the jawbone in future.
Long-lasting toothaches and extreme tooth decay are common dental conditions causing pain, and in some extreme cases, tooth loss.
In such a case, a root canal treatment not only helps you keep your teeth in excellent condition but also prevents extreme procedures such as tooth extraction.
Unlike various other dental treatments—root extraction, periodontitis, and so on—a root canal is a safe and practically painless procedure.
Our dentists use the latest equipment for removing the infected nerves of the pulp, disinfecting the area through a painless process.
