We all are familiar with the term ‘Root Canal Treatment’ and probably have heard people say it better to avoid them and extract the tooth but, is this true? Should one really avoid one? Here’s throwing light on Root canal treatment and why are they so important.
When is it done?
A root canal treatment is done when bacteria from the cavity reaches the inner portion of the tooth called the pulp and leads to tooth pain.
What is the procedure?
During treatment, your dentist or root canal specialist, or endodontist will clear all the infection present in the inner portion of your tooth using special files and instruments. After that, they will fill it using a special material known as gutta-percha. Then if required, they will do a filling and put a crown.
Is it Painful?
Not at all, the root canal specialist will numb your tooth up using a local anesthetic thus the procedure itself is painless. After the treatment mild discomfort can be anticipated for a few days. Your root canal specialist will put you on tablets to manage that.
Do I have to put on a cap after my treatment?
No, a cap is not always required after a root canal treatment. Your root canal specialist will examine you and determine if you need a cap or if any other option is better.
How can I avoid it?
Ensure you visit your dentist on a regular basis and address all cavities when they are in their initial stages itself.
