Root Canals Treatment
Root canal treatment is the best option for saving an infected tooth, tooth with dental pain, fractured tooth or grossly decayed tooth. RCT is a procedure to eliminate bacteria from the infected root canal, prevent reinfection of the tooth and preserve the natural tooth. We ensure the safest and painless root canal treatment at Aster clinic’s.
RCT can be done in a single sitting if the infection is less or in multiple sittings in chronic cases. Steps of performing a root canal treatment are:
- Access opening: We first enter your pulp chamber, after removing the infected part of the tooth surface.
- BMP: In this step, we clean and file the canal and rinse it properly so that the dead and necrotic materials are eliminated from the canal. After shaping and cleaning the canal, we do a temporary filling for a few days.
- Obturation: This is the final step in which we fill medicated gutta-percha in the canal to prevent reinfection and then wholly seal the canal and restore the tooth with composite.
And for proper restoration after RCT, we recommend caps or crowns. The type of cap depends upon the patient's need and budget. We ensure best quality treatment and top-quality products.
Saving the natural tooth with root canal treatment has many advantages
- Efficient chewing
- Normal biting force and sensation
- Preserving the natural appearance
- Protects other teeth from excessive wear or strain
If you're worried about pain or getting hurt, we offer you painless practice of dentistry under anesthesia. Since patients are given anesthesia, a root canal isn’t any more painful than a regular dental procedure.
There are still a few symptoms you can have while your procedure is underway, they are:
- Pain while chewing
- Mouth ulcers
- Tender gums
- Sensitivity to hot and cold food
But once the procedure is completed, you will no longer have any trouble and you can get back to your everyday eating habits. To learn more about root canals, visit Aster clinic now!
Root canal recovery usually takes less than a week. Mild soreness may last for a few days, but medication might reduce it. Call your healthcare practitioner if you have significant pain or discomfort that lasts more than a week.
After a root canal, make sure you brush and floss regularly and take pain relievers. You must also avoid eating immediately after the surgery, as well as chewing hard or crunchy foods.
Root canal treatment may need one or two appointments, depending on the severity of the infection in your tooth. A root canal typically takes 30 to 60 minutes to perform. It can take up to an hour and a half for treatment on a big tooth with many roots.
