The only solution to save your tooth from extraction is to get a root canal done on time !
Do you know that your oral cavity is one of the major parts in your body that is highly prone to infections and bacteria? This is mainly because of the continuous ingestion of food and debris that causes a favourable condition for the bacteria to feed on. Little do you know that what remains within your teeth often leads up to cavities and as a result it leads to severe infection. This infection can be treated by a complex dental treatment known as root canal treatment. However a root canal is only valid when the infection is confined till the pulp chamber and has not damaged the roots. Here is all about a root canal treatment in Dubai.
What is the Root Canal?
Root canal treatment is a conventional technique that is performed in order to remove the decayed and infected part from the pulp chamber of a tooth and to prevent it from further entering into the roots. The pulp chamber is to be completely evacuated so that the dentist can have access to the canals present in the roots.
The treatment involves a series of multiple steps which is to be done in several visits both for the comfort of the patient as well as the dentist.
Before & After of Root Canal
Root canal results are permanent. Various insights into patients’ perceptions prove that teeth become infection-free right after the final session. But remember results can vary. Follow-up appointments are often advised to get more beneficial results.
In most cases, treating an affected tooth will not create a problem again. However, in case of any pain, contact our dentists directly.
The most major hint that indicates the need behind the RCT is severe toothache while applying pressure, especially in the cavity. If you’re noticing this problem in your daily life then don’t ignore it anymore. Save the functioning of your tooth with root canal treatment.

It requires a great deal of knowledge and skills in order to perform a correct root canal therapy. Since the steps are very complex and technical we have a team of Specialist endodontists that strive to perform the best root canal treatment so that our candidates can go home pain free.
Here is a closer look of the treatment step-by-step:
Dental consultant will first examine your oral cavity. The main goal is to treat the infected tooth but the examination of the entire oral cavity is a prerequisite.
The dentist will ask questions related to when and how you experienced the pain along with the nature and severity.
A dental microscope will be used to visualize the cavity however, the intra oral structures and the extent of the infection can only be visualised by taking a radiograph. A well was dentist can identify the location of the infection and its extent of spread.
Pre Operative Working Length
Working length refers to the measurement of the canal that is required to be maintained throughout the treatment while cleaning and shaping. Exceeding the working length can lead to perforations and opening below the canal.
Access Cavity Preparation
This is one of the most important parts of a root canal procedure. In order to enter into the canals the dentist first needs the access into the cavity full stop the access cavity preparation is done by a high speed hanties that is also known as a dental drill. It removes the infected pulp that is present within the crown portion.
Removal Infected Nerve And Pulp
The core foundation of the treatment depends upon the removal of the pulp. The pulp consists of blood vessels and nerves that are responsible for the perception of pain.
Cleaning And Shaping of the Canal
The dentist has completely excavated the pulp from the roots also then the canal is irrigated, field and shape. It is not as easy as it sounds and this entire procedure takes about 30- 45 minutes. It needs to be done very precisely and gently because there are chances of ledgers and perforations. The dentist needs to maintain the thickness and the flaring of the canal during this procedure. Any error occuring during this phase can end in the failure of the entire treatment therefore it is better to choose your dentist wisely.
Our clinic is well saturated with root canal specialists that are very skillful in performing complex treatments like this.
Filling The Canal
After the completion of the cleaning and shipping of the canal it is now time for the canal to be filled. The patient is not filled with the canal on the same day he had his giving and shipping done but most probably in the next visit.
The filling of the canal is known as obturation. On the day of obturation the patient is expected to be pain free and the infection has been resolved. The canal is obturated with a Canal filling material called as Gutta Percha. Prior to the filling of the canals a Canal sealing material is also placed along with an intracanal medicament for the healing and dissolution of the infection.
Core Build Up
In the next visit the dentist will fill up your cavity with a filling material, mostly composite material is used. It is a tooth coloured filling material and has excellent aesthetics along with good durability and strength.
Crown Preparation and Placement
One of the biggest mistakes patients make is that once their core build up is completed they normally do not go for a crown placement. Little do they know that not getting a crown placed can put them into trouble and can cause their treatment to go into a relapse. The entire efforts of the dentist goes in vain therefore we highly recommend that dental crowns are mandatory after root canal treatment.
The crown is prepared by cutting the edges of the tooth. Validation of the dimensions and measurements. It is then sent to the lab for crown manufacturing.
Bite and Occlusion Check
After the crown placement it is very important for the dentist to check the bite and occlusion. The patient is told to bring the teeth and approximation and will be asked whether he or she is able to chew easily or not. Any high spots felt will be smoothened and cleared.
