What Is Root Canal Treatment?

What is Root Canal Treatment?
Root canal therapy is actually a process in which diseased, damaged or dead pulp (soft tissue inside your tooth with nerves and blood vessels) is removed from the canals of tooth, after which it is restored by cleaning, shaping and filling of the canals using a suitable restorative material.

Root canal therapy can be done in a single appointment or it might also take multiple visits depending on the situation of infected tooth.

The treated tooth is usually brittle and prone to fracture as there is not much tooth structure left due to a previous huge cavity. Hence after the treatment a crown should be placed on the tooth to restore its natural shape, appearance and prevent it from any possible damage or fracture.

Root canal therapy is one of the best options to save your natural tooth structure from further damage.

When will the root canal treatment be said complete? Can we go to work next day of RCT? Will be be able to speak properly after the numbness has wore off? Can we eat regular foods after RCT?

RCT is done depending on the infection, the number of sitting depends. Basically 4 sittings and even 1sitting can also be achieved. Yes, you can go to work and just inform your dentist and he will alter according to your convinience. Before RCT an injection is given to eliminate the pain. After procedure also there will be no sensation say for 3 hrs depending upon the dosage. And no restrictions for food. Thank you.

It's procedure. Done in in two or three visit .sometimes only one. If there is less infection. Depending on situation in x-ray. Requires anaesthesia .once the root canal treatment is done. You may need a cap over the tooth.

Filling your stomach full before the root canal treatment is surely a good idea because the process sometimes takes as long as 3 hours.

Get an X-ray done asap and see a dentist, there may be a re-infection in that tooth. Warm salt rinses shall help along with a soft diet.

Dear Lybrate user, A cap or a dental crown becomes necessary after a root canal treatment to ensure long life and chewing function. You should get the cap placed within a month of completion of root canal treatment (provided the tooth is asymptomatic).
