Root canal treatment is done to save a tooth that has been infected or badly decayed. This procedure is used to retain a tooth instead of extracting it. Root Canal is done when the pulp within the center of the tooth is infected or inflamed due to reasons like cracked tooth, deep decay, large fillings, and trauma to the face or failure of any other previous treatment.
The infection or inflammation causes huge pain and if it is left untreated, the bacteria might multiply within the chamber developing an abscessed tooth. This can cause bone loss and swelling that may spread up to the neck, face, and head. It is important to treat the infection or inflammation for the tooth to last for a lifetime. Though the procedure might look daunting and painful, in reality, it is not at all painful. Most of the patients can go back to their routine the next day of the treatment.
As part of the procedure, the tooth’s nerve and pulp are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed. Removal of tooth nerve doesn’t cause much harm as its only function is to provide the sensation of hot and cold. The absence of nerve doesn’t affect the functioning of the tooth in any way and hence Root Canal is the most reliable way to deal with the infected and decayed tooth.
The dentists in Pearl Dental Chennai are professionally trained and highly experienced. Before they begin with the procedure, they make sure that the infection is not spread to the surrounding bone. They use local anesthesia to numb the area so that you do not feel any pain and are relaxed throughout the process. The affected tooth is replaced with a crown, bridge, denture or implant depending upon the condition. With advanced dental care at our clinic, your restored tooth is made to work and feel like a natural tooth.
Once the procedure is completed, the doctors advise you on the dos and don’ts of the post-treatment phase. It is required that you maintain good oral health with regular brushing, flossing and use antiseptic mouth wash to prevent any future infection.
