A root canal is a treatment option for a severely infected tooth that has not responded to other treatments. It involves removing the infected dental pulp and cleaning the canals. The procedure involves using local anesthesia to numb the affected area and making a small hole in the tooth. The dental pulp is removed, and the canals are cleaned and sealed.

How Is a Root Canal Performed? 

The root canal procedure is performed under local anesthesia. The dentist makes a small hole in the tooth to access the dental pulp, which is the source of infection. Using high-precision equipment, the dentist removes the infected dental pulp from the canals. Then, they disinfect, irrigate, and seal the canals with a special filling material. The procedure lasts for about an hour and does not require any surgical incisions to be made.

Benefits of Root Canal Treatment 

  • A root canal prevents tooth loss by treating an infected or decayed tooth that cannot be restored with fillings or crowns.
  • It improves oral health by removing bacterial deposits from around the teeth and restoring damaged teeth to their normal function. 
  • Root canal restores damaged teeth by removing decay and reinstating their structure and strength. 
  • It reduces pain caused due to severe tooth infections, making it uncomfortable to chew or bite food. 
  • It helps reduce oral diseases such as gingivitis or periodontitis by removing harmful bacteria from the mouth. 
  • Root canal treatments are affordable dental solutions for patients of all income levels.
