3 Dimension RCT

Thrill to fill

3-dimensional obturation/filling in root canal treatment (RCT)

Root canals are now painless, faster and more accurate with latest rotary devices and 3 dimension filling system. Least failure and better prognosis of the tooth.
 

Why remove when we can save?

There is a myth among all people that a dentist is confined to 32 teeth and he doesn’t know other medical knowledge but I want to share some points with you:

  • Dentistry is a specialty which involves oral cavity and surrounding structures (similar to skin, ent, etc)
  • It doesn’t deal only with 32 teeth
  • A dentist is a surgeon
  • A dentist deals with all the diseases with oral manifestations
  • No other speciality in medicine has been further divided into specialities
  • A dentist is an anaesthetist (he gives anesthesia for many procedures)
  • A dentist is a radiographer (he takes the x-ray of his patients himself)
  • A dentist is a children’s specialist (he is the only surgeon who can make children to sit for a surgery without general anesthesia)
  • A dentist deals with oral cancer (he knows to take biopsy. Oral cancer tops the various other cancers which occur in humans)
  • A dentist is an bone specialist he deals with double joint i. E temporomandibular joint which is only one double joint in the body
  • A dentist deals with trigeminal neuralgia so a neurologist
  • A dentist knows the aids symptoms which manifest mainly in oral cavity
  • As a surgeon he knows how to control bp and sugar so a diabetologist
  • He makes smiles and helps to make love

Happy dentists day to all my dentist friends!

Indications When You Need A RCT!

Indications When You Need A RCT!

The tooth may seem like a hard, white structure, but it has a complex supply of blood and nerve vessels that give it the essential nutrition. From outside in, the tooth has 3 layers the enamel which is the hard white substance, the dentin which is next, and then the pulp under it where there is a fine supply of blood vessels and nerves. When the pulp is affected in any manner, trauma or infection, then tooth pain ensues and requires treatment.
While extraction was the norm earlier, now all efforts are made to preserve a tooth. RCT preserves the natural tooth by removing the infected nerve and blood vessels, cleaning up the canal, and sealing the canals from inside so that further infection does not happen.

Why RCT?

Preserved chewing function, normal biting force and sensation, preserved natural appearance, and reduced strain on other teeth, thereby maintaining oral harmony. As complex as it may sound, it is usually done in 3 to 4 appointments, giving the tooth enough time to heal in between. The patient is iven antibiotics so that any infection is cleared out.

So, when should root canal treatment (RCT) be done?

  1. Infection: The most common indication of RCT would be infection. When decay crosses the enamel and dentin, which can be treated completely with simple restorations, and reaches the pulp, pain ensues. In fact, pain is the first symptom that decay has reached the pulp. Though in very superficial infections, it can be treated with pulp capping, in most cases, RCT is done to clear out the infection and preserve the tooth.
  2. Faulty dental procedures: If there has been a dental procedure done on the tooth earlier and it has failed, could be a crown or repeated fillings for decay, then RCT is the next logical decision.
  3. Cracked tooth: If there is a cracked tooth, especially vertical crack along the length of the tooth, then the chances that infection will reach the pulp through the crack are high. These teeth are usually root canal treated to preserve the natural dentition.
  4. Trauma or accidents: With the impact of the trauma, there might be no obvious damage to the tooth but it could lead to death of the vital pulp. These show up as discolored teeth over time. These require RCT and a crown placement.
  5. Teeth in the line of cancers or cysts: Before surgery or radiation is done, it is usually safe to root canal treat the tooth in the line of treatment (or sometimes remove them) before surgery or radiation is done.

Root canal treatment helps both by keeping the original tooth intact and by removing the danger that arises out of infection or trauma. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Root Canal Treatment or RCT as it is commonly known is an important and common treatment done to save a tooth when it is infected commonly due to cavities or injury to the tooth.It is a painless procedure done in both permanent as well as milk teeth whenever necessary.Nowadays all cases are done using advanced rotary technique which enables the dentist to complete the process in 1 or 2 sittings.
