What exactly does it mean to get a root canal treatment?

Root canal treatment involves removing the pulp of the affected tooth, cleaning the roots followed by filling the sterilized and clean root canals.

Root Canals Treatment Process

RCT Procedure

There isn’t anything mysterious about the root canal. To help you understand what exactly happens during the treatment, here is a step by step description of the procedure

1. X-rays

  • Radiographs are taken to diagnose and formulate a treatment plan.

2. Anesthetic

  • At first, the tooth will be made numb with the help of an anesthetic. Be rest assured, the whole procedure will be set up in a sterile environment.

3. Removing the pulp

  • Following that, the alive part of the tooth will be removed by the dentist making a passage in the tooth.

4. Cleaning

  • Now the cavity will be cleaned and irrigated. The canals i.e. roots of the tooth will be made ready for the filling by shaping them with the help of instruments.

5. Temporary filling

  • You will be provided with a temporary filling until the next visit.

6. Final restoration

  • On the subsequent visit, the procedure will be completed by sealing the root canals with a specific material. The tooth will also be given a permanent restoration.

Follow up after RCT

You would need to visit the dentist as recommended.

Your dentist would decide if you need a crown after treatment or not.

  • Crowns are artificial tooth-colored caps that are placed for a natural appearance.
    • Crowns also help you to eat normally and strengthen the treated tooth.

If required, the dentist will take your crown measurements after they will deliver the same in the next visit.

Post Treatment Care

Root canals are a routine and normal procedure.

  • You can go back to your normal life after it is completed.
  • You can start to eat and drink just fine.
  • Take care of oral hygiene.

Alternatives to Root Canal Treatment

It is for a dentist to see and recommend what treatment suits you the best.

If the tooth is badly broken or infected, the dentist will recommend you to get it extracted.
