Root canal or endodontic treatment—treatment done to the inside of the tooth—is necessary when the pulp becomes inflamed or infected. The inflammation or infection can have a variety of causes: deep decay, repeated dental procedures on the tooth, faulty crowns, or a crack or chip in the tooth. In addition, trauma to a tooth may cause pulp damage even if the tooth has no visible chips or cracks. If pulp inflammation or infection is left untreated, it can cause pain or lead to an abscess.
Also the preparation of the cavity is not conservative as some mechanical preparations of retention need to be followed . We recommend white composite fillings which blend in with your natural teeth and are more aesthetic. These fillings are mercury free. The cavity preparation for composite fillings is more conservative as compared to silver amalgam, as we just grind the tooth where it is required ie the decayed portion..
Who need this treatment?
Patients with throbbing pain in their tooth, especially during night while sleepingPatients having sensation while having cold or hot drinks or foodPatients with swelling in their jaw bone or around the gums. Procedure In the first step of the procedure, the dentists will drill the infected area so as to access the infected pulp. Once they drill the area, the dentists will remove the infect pulp tissue and then continue drilling the root canal. After removing the pulp and drilling the root canal, the dentists will disinfect the canal with the help of saline water and medical compounds. Standard filling material is used by the dentists to seal the canals and to prevent future infections. After filling and sealing the canals, the tooth is covered with the help of crown to protect it from fractures This treatment procedure demands several visits to clinic as it cannot be accomplished in a single clinic visit. To suppress the sensation of pain during drilling, the dentists apply local anesthesia prior to treatment. We at Sparkle Dental offer painless RCT at an affordable rate.
