What is a Root Canal Treatment? 

A root canal treatment is a conventional method in which the canals present in the root of a tooth are debrided, cleansed, shaped and filled in order to clear out any existing infection. The goal of the treatment is to reduce pain and work on the conservation of the tooth.

The most conventional method of root canal treatment is done through files that are made-up of stainless steel. The latter were then done by pro tapers which are known as Rotary endodontic files. Now, the root canal is even more advanced and is done through laser therapies. Yes! you got it right, lasers are not just bound for aesthetic purposes but also have taken their lead in dentistry as well.

In Which Conditions is a Root Canal Treatment Done? 

  •  Severe pain in the tooth that can spread into ears and neck.
  •  A tooth that has recently suffered from a trauma.
  •  A tooth that is expected to become mobile in a couple of days.
  •  Tooth that is responsible for giving some support in a bridge.

How is a Root Canal Treatment Performed? 

According to conventional methods, the root canal is Performed by using stainless steel files. Initially the dentist will remove the pulp from the crown portion of the tooth that is supposed to be infected. 

The pulp is the main substituent that is responsible for the nourishment of the tooth. Later, when the crown portion of the pulp is removed the dentist will then use the files to remove the pulp from the radicular portion that involves the root canals. 

Once the infected pulp is removed the dentist will now use files for cleaning and shaping the canals so that the filling materials can be placed into the canals.

As soon as the filling material is placed into the canals the crown portion is then filled up with tooth colored filling material known as composite.  

The process is then followed by the placement of a porcelain fused to metal crown that completes the conventional method of a root canal treatment.
