Root Canal Procedure:
Root Canal treatment can be completed in a single sitting, or in multiple visits depending on the complexity of the root canal treatment and the number of teeth impacted.
Anaesthesia is first administered to eliminate pain and discomfort, after which the dentist proceeds to remove the decayed portion of the tooth. The pulp chambers of the tooth are then exposed.
With the help of fine endodontic files, the pulp is cleaned and removed from these chambers entirely. They are then given a proper, uniform shape.
Finally, the canals are filled with a special endodontic fillings material meant for replacing the pulp.
To restore the function of this structurally compromised tooth, a crown is fitted on top – which also helps in improving the aesthetics of the smile.
