Root canal Health Feed

My dentist suggested me RCT, currently I am taking homeopathy medicine Arnica Montana and kerosote Q for my tooth (which was suffering from extreme pain and sensitivity). Few days back only I gone through amalgam filling but the pain and sensitivity increases. After taking these homeopathy medicine, sensitivity is gone & pain is reduced to 10% but is levelling on 10% and not reducing from last 2 days. What should I do now?

Hi, plan for Root canal treatment. You may get pain once the infection reaches the pulp (nerve). Temporarily pain maybe be relieved by medication. But that is not a permanent solution. You may get pain at any time. So plan for your RCT.

Create a Pain Free Future For Your Next Generation

“Brush Kar lo nahin toh doctor injection de dega"

“Please Chocolate mat khaana tumhare daant sad jayenge"

Remember as children if we wouldn’t brush,the myriad threats we would face from doctors,injections or even the fear of tooth extractions would suffice to make anything to do with teeth-brushing or treatments absolutely dreadful!

My childhood was spent avoiding brushing at night and sneaking in sweets and my only dental visits were for braces and they started of on an unpleasant note with 4 extractions and that’s the only memory I have when someone says Dentist!!

Until I became one and started realizing that we could affect this change ONE SMILE at a time.Dentistry has changed drastically if we are willing to adapt to that change. National Children’s Dental Health Month should be more than a calendar month.Let’s make a positive change for our future generations.

Here are 5 key factors to eliminating fear in a child’s mind.

1. No More Threats

If you’re a parent,teacher,caregiver or even a doctor stop threatening.Start at home by eliminating threats from your vocabulary.

We transmit our fears unknowingly to our young ones it’s time we became conscious of the impact our words have on their psyche.

2. Make It Fun

As parents we are diligent in our research to figure what’s the best way my child should brush or the best product to use but we seldom look into how to make it more fun.We just impose brushing and expect the child to follow suit.

We often advise parents that making your child’s brushing activity fun by using apps,games,gadgets and music can go a long way in their dental health for life.

So don’t stress about what to brush with but rather how should your child be taking up to brushing and oral hygiene in general.

3.Research a Painfree specialist

The term family dentist is totally passé there is no such concept anymore.With a wide variety of specialisations and recent advances just one person is not expected to handle the dental needs of your entire family.Pediatric dentists are specialized to work on children and there adult specialists who treat different dental maladies be it your root canals,gum problems,teeth alignment and even teeth replacement.

Be sure to choose a compassionate care provider whose prime concern is to ensure that pain should be the last thing you or your child are feeling in the chair.

4. Memorable First Visit

It’s a special day when a child visits a dentist for the first time. It can be the start of a life long relationship with the dental care provider and even their concept in general with their own dental health.

The doctor must ensure they take all the measures to make a positive impact on the patients mind always maintaining an encouraging tone rather than an intimidating authoritative attitude.

A variety of exciting surprises can be prepared for your child’s dental visit based on their age so that they walk out smiling.

5. Rewards

If your child was brave enough to go through a dental visit and battle the demons that we have so meticulously planted in their minds,let us at least make sure they’re rewarded starting from the clinic itself and even back at home.

Be it their favorite thing to eat or a small present that they have been vying for try and create a positive memory association or rewarding good behavior at the dentist.

This will ensure that your child is ready for the next visit.

Let me summarize with every parents checklist for their child’s healthy dental future

If you have

  • refrained from threatening or bullying your child into brushing,
  • he finds it a fun activity,
  • has been to Painfree expert and

had an excellent first dental visit with

  • a reward commemorating his behavior

need I say you’ve done your best!

Root canal is the only way to save a tooth with infection. Usually the tooth stop moving if proper root canal treatment is performed and lasts in the mouth for many years.

Yes. Anaesthesia can be given in 2 or 3 Rd sittings also if there is pain. Pain while doing rct means pulp remnant are still there. Until pulp canals are clean there will be pain doing rct.
