What is root canal treatment?

The history of root canal treatment, or endodontic therapy, stretches back centuries and addresses one of the most common problems in dental practice. Root canal pain and root canal infection occur with the invasion of bacteria in the tooth, usually due to tooth decay, leaking fillings, or impact trauma. Root canal treatment is required when the center of the tooth, or the pulp, has been damaged by infection. Symptoms include pain whilst eating or drinking in the early stages, or gum swelling, oozing pus, and darkening of the tooth in more advanced stages of infection.

Examples of root canal procedures can include full tooth extraction, or simply removing the infected root canal system in an attempt to save the tooth. Pain is minimal, with local anaesthetic applied. Root canal treatment is generally successful - 9 times out of 10, a tooth can remain healthy for up to 10 years. If conventional treatment fails, apicoectomy (root end surgery), may be suggested. An endodontic surgery technique, apicoectomy removes the tip of the tooth, which is then filled with a cavity. More complex root canal procedures are generally carried out by endodontists, who specialize in dental pulp disorders and on teeth such as molars, which have more than one canal. Aftercare is very important with root canal treatment.

Root canal treatment is used to save a tooth which is very decayed. It involves the removal of damaged or infected nerves and tissue from the root of the tooth. The roots usually become infected due to a large cavity which eventually infects the pulp in the tooth and then the tissue inside the roots. The dentist cleans out the roots, before applying a filling. As a result, the tooth is dead but it can continue to function. Dead teeth may turn grey, and the dentist may recommend a crown or post and core treatment. Recommended for Teeth that have severe damage to the pulp and nerve tissue, but can be saved Most dentists will recommend root canal treatment rather than removing a tooth, as it is important to preserve natural teeth whenever possible Time requirements Average length of stay abroad 2 - 5 days.

To check for suitability for a root canal procedure, the dentist is likely to X-ray the affected tooth, and perform a pulp test to check the tooth for a healthy response.,

After establishing that a root canal is necessary, the dentist will numb the area and cover it with a rubber dam to prevent infection and keep the area dry for the duration of the procedure. The dentist will then make a small hole at the top of the infected tooth and the pulp is removed from the chambers and canals of the tooth. The chambers and canals are widened to provide sufficient room for a root canal filling, and then the tooth is filled. For patients requiring two appointments, in the first sitting, the tooth is hollowed and a temporary filling is fitted, at the second appointment, the permanent filling is fitted.

Root canal fillings use a range of materials, and the specific materials used vary from clinic to clinic. The most typically used materials include tooth sealant, zinc oxide-eugenol, resins, calcium hydroxide and glass ionomers. Most commonly used materials for the obdurate include solids, semi-solids and pastes, depending on the type of cavity. Anesthesia Local anesthetic. Procedure duration The Root Canal takes 2 to 4 hours. It can take some time to clean out the roots of a tooth and if the root has many, eg. 3 to 4 roots, it might require 2 sessions of several hours. The tissue in the root is cleaned out and replaced with a filling.,

Patients should avoid eating solid food on the tooth.

Possible discomfort Tenderness in the tooth and jaw is normal for a few days after root canal treatment, and the treated tooth is likely to feel different from the other teeth for a longer time after treatment, but this will eventually subside.,
