What Is Root Canal Treatment?

Root Canal Treatment (RCT), also known as endodontic therapy is a dental procedure that involves the removal of infection from the “Root Canal” of the decayed tooth.

In this process, the pulp containing nerve tissues, blood vessels, and also other cells present inside the root canal is cleaned and the area is sealed using a filling to prevent future infection in the area. You can get the treatment of root canal from Mass Dental Associates

The entire Root Canal Treatment (RCT) can be easily broken down in stages mentioned below: –

1- To ensure a painless treatment, the dentist initially numbs the tooth that requires cleaning using local anesthesia. After this, the dentist will isolate the tooth using a dental dam or cloth to ensure dryness during the treatment.

2- Once the above process is completed, the dentist will use a small drill to enter the inside of the infected tooth by creating an opening on top of the tooth.

3- Using files, the dentist will then remove the infection-containing pulp and later effectively reshape the inner chamber of the tooth. Additionally, to prevent any chances of future infection, the dentist will apply the antimicrobial solution in the affected area.

4- Lastly, the area of the tooth where the small drill made an opening is closed by the use of dental sealants. The sealant guards the tooth against future infections.

Dentists around the globe have been performing millions of root canal treatments with the use of advanced technology. Recent improvements have ensured that there are no reasons to worry about during and after completion of a root canal treatment.
