What is a Root Canal Treatment??
Root Canal treatment deals with removal of the Inflamed and Infected part of the pulp tissue present in the innermost layer of the tooth and refilling it with an inert biocompatible material to prevent spreading of the infection, Thereby allowing one to keep the tooth that would otherwise needed to be extracted. Root Canal treatment is the last resort to save the tooth and we, here at Somani’s Orthodontic & Dental Clinic one of the finest Advanced Oral Health Care Centre located in prime location of Satellite Ahmedabad specialize in it.

Why get a Root Canal done??
The pulp is the inner most layer of tooth that harbors nerve endings and tissues which make it a living tissue, extending right up to the roots. Once this tissue has been infected the only viable option for saving the tooth is to perform a root canal treatment and we at Somani’s Orthodontic & Dental Clinic located in satellite Ahmedabad help you in doing so, with minimal discomfort. Taking only antibiotics or other pain reliving medications will not remove the cause of the infection neither will these medicines help in disinfecting the root canals as the blood vessels that would usually deliver these medications to the site of infection are usually destroyed by the bacteria when they infect the tooth. The medicines might give a temporary relief but they are not the ultimate solution.
If the infected tooth is left untreated it presents a significant risk as the infection may worsen and can spread to other parts of the body which leads to changes that make it further more difficult to treat the tooth and ultimately leading to removal of tooth. Although one may experience pain, swelling, or other signs of infection at any point during this disease process, it is quiet common that a person is not aware of this chronic disease occurring until a problem is found during a checkup by the dentist which is why it is recommended to get a dental checkup every 6 months from your dentist.

The procedure of root canal treatment is as follows:
1.The tooth that is involved will be numbed and removal of the decayed part of the tooth will be done. Thereby an Access opening is made through the chewing surface of the tooth into the pulp chamber for their cleaning and debridement.
2.The inside of the tooth is cleaned, disinfected and shaped with the help of special endodontic instruments that allow the disinfectants to reach all the way to the tip of the root. A temporary filling material is placed inside the tooth in order to protect the shaped and cleaned canals till the next stage of treatment.
3.Next the tooth is inspected to ensure that the infection has resolved and if so, a permanent root canal filling material is placed inside the each canal to permanently seal them.
4.Lastly as a final step all the decayed portion of the tooth that was removed initally is restored with a permanent restoration and a crown/onlay is given over it to prevent any kind of leakage from the margins and most commonly tooth fractures. The root canal treated tooth must be permanently restored as soon as possible as there is a high chance of damage to the tooth from biting force coming from the opposing tooth.
- What can you expect immediately after your treatment?
It is absolutely normal to experience some kind of discomfort after the completion of the root canal treatment, especially while chewing.
