Advanced Single Visit Root Canal Treatment (RCT)

In the past, a badly infected, painful tooth was doomed to be extracted. Today majority of these teeth can be salvaged by a special dental procedure called Root Canal Therapy.

When Is A Root Canal Needed?

A Root Canal treatment is needed when a tooth's nerve and associated blood vessels are irreversibly damaged either by trauma to the tooth or because of a deep cavity. This results in infection that may lead to an abscess at the base of the tooth.

Typical Signs and Symptoms:

  • Throbbing pain in the tooth
  • Swelling in the jaw
  • The tooth may be painful to chew on
  • Pain on consuming hot and / or cold foods
  • Teeth that are severely worn out

The Root Canal Procedure:

  • Your treatment may take one or more visits, where the nerve of the offending tooth is removed and the root canal is subsequently filled
  • The procedure is done under local anaesthesia most of the times
  • Your Dentist may take x-rays to ensure that the full length of your root canal is treated
  • If your roots are unusually shaped or there are other complications, you may need to have apical surgery (Apicoectomy) as advised by your Dentist
  • After the Root Canal, a core filling is done and the tooth may subsequently be protected with a cap

Now your tooth should function and feel like your natural teeth.

While The Root Canal Treatment Is Going On:

  • Take medication as prescribed
  • Do not eat anything hard on the offending tooth
  • Avoid any heat fermentation on the outside
  • Once the inside of your tooth is treated the outside is usually protected by a crown
