Root Canal

Root Canal treatment in Kharadi – Smile Time Dental Clinic

What is root canal treatment?

Root Canal Treatment, also known as Endodontics Treatment, is a dental procedure in which the diseased or damaged pulp (core) of a tooth is removed, and the inside areas (the pulp chamber and root canals) are filled and sealed.

There is nothing fun about a root canal, but when the root of a tooth becomes inflamed or infected, it can be uncomfortable and incredibly painful. Our experienced dentist can help save the infected tooth so you can leave our clinic with a pain-free smile—and an incredible sense of relief!!

How root canal is performed?

Although we have many options for restorative dentistry to replace missing teeth, our first priority is always keeping your natural teeth in healthy working order. When the tooth roots become infected, the hard outer structure of the tooth can be preserved using a root canal procedure. During the procedure, we will make a small hole in your tooth to access the roots and clean out the infected tooth pulp inside. We may book a second appointment to check your tooth and install a dental crown over the affected tooth.

When do you need a root canal treatment?

Root canal treatment can be recommended if you have – 

  •  Persistent pain
  • Sensitivity to hot or cold foods.
  • Swelling around or below a tooth.
  • Traumatized, broken or discoloured tooth to be treated.
  • You want to align a severely malposed tooth with a cap or a crown.

Commonly asked questions about root canal treatment

What causes the need for a root canal?

Root canal treatment is done to protect a tooth that is badly decayed or seriously infected. The nerve and its surrounding tooth pulp are removed, and the tooth is sealed shut. The interior of the tooth is left virtually impervious to future decay.

Is a root canal necessary?

Root canals are needed when tooth is cracked from injury or genetics, having a deep cavity, or issues from a previous filling. Root canal treatment is needed when they notice their teeth are sensitive, particularly to hot and cold sensations.

 

How long do root canals last?

Around 9 out of 10 root-treated teeth survive for 8 to 10 years. Having a crown fitted to the tooth after root canal treatment is important for improving tooth survival rates.
