Root Canal Treatment

By: Smileway Dental

Root canal treatment is needed when the root canals or pulp (the innermost layer of teeth), which houses nerves and blood vessels is inflamed or infected. The pulp can get infected with bacteria due to injury or untreated cavity.

When this occurs, normal filling could not curb the problem.  Root canal treatment or RCT has to be done.

Root Canal treatment is the process of disinfecting and shaping of the root canals. After which a filling is placed into the space and sealed with rubber based filing material called Gutta Percha, to prevent further bacteria colonization.

PROCEDURE FOR ROOT CANAL TREATMENT

  1. Local anaesthetic will be administered to numb the area. A dental dam will be placed prior to the procedure.
  2. A small drill will be used to access the pulp of tooth by creating an opening from the top of tooth. After that, files will be used to remove infected pulp alongside antimicrobial irrigation to wash away the diseased tissue.
  3. Once the root canal is cleaned and dried, it will be filled and sealed with Gutta Percha. Filling material will be used to fill the upper portion of tooth, while waiting for the permanent crown.

Got a bridge and implant done by Dr Jon this year. Still holding up, looking forward to next and hopefully final treatment for missing tooth. Flexible payment terms and polite staff. Give them a try if you haven’t.

Having great experience so far. The doctor are very attentive and explain things very thoroughly without pushing for unncesssary treatment. The clinic is well lit and very cleanπŸ‘πŸ‘. It is on the first and second so it will be a bit hard if you have a bad leg.

Surveyed few dentists before I decided to do my wisdom tooth surgery here. Very good service by Dr Edwin who was very gentle throughout the procedure. Most importantly, it was painless. Had good experience with the follow-up sessions too and hope to receive the same experience in my next visit. The nurses and receptionists are very welcoming and friendly. Thumbs up for the good service and the will definitely come again.
