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.

I recently had an appointment at Smileway Dental Clinic to address a persistent dental issue that had been causing me considerable discomfort. From the moment I walked in, the atmosphere of the clinic was warm and welcoming, which helped to alleviate some of my anxiety. Dr. Lisa took the time to listen to my concerns and thoroughly explain the procedure to me, which helped to alleviate my fears. Her calming demeanour and gentle approach immediately put me at ease. The surgery itself was surprisingly painless, thanks to Dr. Lisa's expertise and skillful technique. She was incredibly patient and attentive throughout the entire procedure, constantly checking in to make sure I was comfortable and pain-free. Overall, my experience at Smileway Dental Clinic was nothing short of exceptional. Dr. Lisa and her team exceeded my expectations in every way, providing me with top-notch dental care in a compassionate and supportive environment. I highly recommend Smileway Dental Clinic to anyone in need of dental services, especially those who may be anxious or fearful about visiting the dentist.
