ROOT CANAL TREATMENT
What Is Root Canal Treatment?
The outer portion or Crown of a tooth is a three-layered structure namely –
Enamel, Dentin & Pulp.
If the tooth decay is limited to the first two layers, it can be corrected with Filling/ Restoration. In case the tooth decay reaches the third layer and causes inflammation or infection of pulp, an RCT or Endodontic Treatment is needed.
Root Canal Treatment also known as Endodontic Treatment is a procedure done when the tooth decay reaches the pulp (innermost layer of the tooth) causing inflammation. It is necessary to save the damaged tooth from extraction. This procedure is done by an Endodontist who is known as a Root Canal Specialist. The procedure involves:
Removal of inflamed or infected tooth material
Cleaning and disinfection
Filling and sealing with an inert material
Restoration and crown/cap
It is a multi-step procedure and may require multiple sittings.
At Arya Dental Clinic, we also provide Laser Root Canal Treatment.
The Difference Between Laser & Traditional Root Canal?
Traditional Root Canal Treatment:
A traditional root canal makes use of a drill to create a tiny opening in the tooth to be treated. The infle hole is filled back up again with a rubber like solution.
Laser Root Canal Treatment:
A laser root canal follows basically the same procedure, but making use of a laser, instead of a drill, really does make a difference. The laser can 'boil away' the damaged tissue with far greater accuracy and speed and the tooth is left considerably cleaner. There is also often less bleeding involved - a plus for anyone because no one really likes to see blood, especially if it's their own. Some patients who have had a root canal in the past and then had laser treatment have reported that the pain and discomfort they experienced immediately after their dental surgery was noticeably less.
