Root Canal Treatment

  • What is a root canal treatment ?

    Its mostly a single visit treatment where the nerves of the teeth is cleaned in order to remove the infection completely from the root and seal the teeth ends so that there is no recurrence of the infection for life time. This procedure basically saves the tooth and eliminates dental pain. At Dr. Preeti’s TOTAL SMILECARE, rootcanal treatment is totally machine operated which makes the treatment even more accurate, absolute and totally painless!!

    Even if the teeth is badly broken down after rootcanal treatment it can be restored completely with a post and core ( screw) treatment which builds up the strength of the teeth. Rootcanal is generally followed by a cap or crown to protect the teeth.

  • Why and when are root canal treatments required?

    Decay of the teeth (cavities) if left untreated, generally progress and gradually destroy a significant portion of the tooth before reaching the ‘pulp’ of the tooth. The pulp of the tooth is a thin soft tissue present in the tooth canals consisting of mainly nerves and blood vessels.

    Once this infection reaches the pulp it gives rise to a common ‘dental pain’. At this stage the tooth can only be saved by performing a root canal treatment.
