What is Root Canal Treatment?
Root canal treatment (RCT) is needed when the pulp of the tooth, which contains nerves and blood vessels, becomes infected and inflamed, which is known as pulp necrosis. This condition can be extremely painful and eventually may lead to a dental abscess formation. A root canal treatment is needed to remove the pulp, relieve any pain and to save the tooth.

At Prevent Dental Suite we make your comfort our priority and use modern techniques and technology for a pain free treatment.
The root canal procedure involves isolation of the tooth under a rubber dental dam, removal of any old restorations, and removal of any decayed tooth structure. This is followed by cleaning of root canals, removing the infected pulp, and reshaping the root canal walls with flexible files and chemicals.
We require taking multiple radiographs during the procedure to make sure the whole length of the canal is reached and cleaned properly. Once a proper cleaning is done, the root canals will be filled with biocompatible dental materials and sealed. Sealing the tooth is usually done by installing a permanent dental crown to strengthen the treated root, which will lose some of its natural strength after a root canal treatment. This treatment allows you to keep your natural tooth in place, which is almost always the optimal choice for the longest lasting, healthiest outcome.
Why would I need a Root Canal Treatment?
A root canal treatment (RCT) is necessary when the pulp of a tooth becomes infected and inflamed. The various causes of infection include severe decay, a fractured tooth, an injury from an accident, a failed dental crown or filling.
What signs may indicate I require a Root Canal Treatment?
Signs include continuous pain, extreme or prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold exposure, discolouration of a tooth after trauma, swollen face, and sensitive gums which are painful when chewing.
What can I expect during and after the Root Canal Treatment?
The dentist will utilise modern techniques, special equipment and most importantly anaesthetics to make your visit as painfree and comfortable as possible. The main purpose of root canal treatment is to relieve the pain caused by the infection. So after a short recovery period, you can expect to feel much better.
Why would I need a Dental crown after Root Canal Treatment?
After getting a root canal treatment, the tooth loses its vitality and becomes more fragile. This makes it more likely to chip or break. To protect the tooth from further infection and to structurally strengthen it, a dental crown is usually installed on top of the treated root.
