Root Canal

Essential Information About Root Canal Treatment (RCT)

Are you anxious about undergoing a root canal treatment (RCT) recommended by your dentist due to an aching tooth? Contrary to common fears, root canal procedures are virtually painless and highly effective thanks to modern endodontic techniques.

Depending on the severity of the infection under the roots, RCT can be completed in one to two sessions.

RCT is a method of treating the damaged or infected roots of your tooth by eliminating the infection, which subsequently relieves you of the associated pain. The ultimate objective of a successful RCT is to preserve your tooth within your jaw, free of pain and infection, restore your biting and chewing capacity, and reinstate your confident smile!

Understanding Root Canal Anatomy

Each tooth contains dental pulp located centrally within it. This pulp is a soft, living tissue nourished by blood vessels and nerves. When a tooth decays, gets injured or infected, it inflames and this inflammation extends to the pulp, leading to severe pain. Gum infections can also trigger inflammation of the pulp tissue. The tooth root is the part of the tooth situated inside the bone, below the gum line.

Identifying RCT Requirements

The usual symptoms include pain, enduring sensitivity to heat or cold, tenderness upon touch or during chewing, tooth discoloration, swelling, drainage, and tenderness in the lymph nodes near the bone and gum tissues. However, in some instances, there may be no obvious symptoms and the need for RCT can only be detected during routine dental checkups. Frequently, dental cavities, which are a common dental issue, lead to tooth decay and gum infection.

The RCT Procedure

This simple procedure includes removal of the infected pulp, cleaning and shaping the root canal, and ultimately sealing it with artificial filling material. Steps involved in this process are:

  • Gaining access to the root canal openings
  • Elimination of infected or inflamed pulp
  • Flushing out infected tissue debris
  • Filling and sealing the root canal
  • Sealing the cavity
  • Restoration of the tooth with a crown

The Benefits of Root Canal Treatment

The primary goal of RCT is to retain the natural tooth within the jaw, free of pain and infection, thereby avoiding tooth extraction. Regular dental check-ups can prevent the progression from a cavity to an infected or inflamed pulp by detecting hidden cavities. Good oral hygiene practices, including brushing twice daily with fluoride toothpaste (using an interdental brush) and daily flossing (using a water flosser), prevent tooth decay. Dental fillings also prevent the bacteria present in decay from reaching the pulp.

Undergoing a root canal procedure provides benefits such as:

  • Preserving the natural tooth
  • Enabling efficient chewing
  • Restoring normal biting force and sensation
  • Retaining the natural appearance of the tooth
  • Protecting other teeth from excessive wear or strain.
