Root Canal Treatment and dental filling

Generally, people are less concerned when it comes to a dental treatment. So most patients avoid getting dental treatment done and also feel that dental procedures very expensive and time-consuming as multiple visits required. Filling & Root Canal Treatment is a very common dental procedure carried out extensively.

Around 1.5 crore people undergo root canals in the western world, it is estimated that in India this number would be way higher. As a nation the amount of time & effort which a multiple sitting root canal therapy would take would amount to huge costs when compared with single sitting root canal therapies.

Despite your efforts to keep teeth clean and healthy, sometimes cavities are unavoidable. Luckily, Dr Chirag and team offer white composite fillings! A composite filling is a tooth-colored plastic and glass mixture used to restore teeth that have been damaged by decay. Composites are also used for cosmetic improvements of the smile by changing the colour of the teeth or reshaping disfigured teeth.

In cases where dental fillings are not possible, Root Canal Treatment may be unavoidable.

Broken Tooth: When your teeth break, you are in jeopardy of losing the tooth or spreading an infection to other teeth. There are many ways someone can break a tooth, when playing sports, slipping, falling, or eating really hard foods, to name a few. The pain from a damaged or broken tooth can be excruciating if not treated quickly and effectively.

Dental Pain or a toothache is caused when the nerve in the root of a tooth or surrounding a tooth is irritated. Dental infection, decay, injury, or loss of a tooth are the most common causes of dental pain. Pain may also occur after an extraction.

Teeth Cavity, also called tooth decay, is a hole that forms in your tooth. Cavities start small and gradually become bigger when they’re left untreated. Because many cavities don’t cause pain in the beginning, it can be hard to realise that a problem exists. Regular dental appointments can detect tooth decay or Teeth Cavity early.

The first thing that comes to my mind: Why get a root canal treatment done?

In laymen terms, a root canal is a procedure used to treat tooth infections which the tooth has to be put under pressure to prevent the infection from spreading. Root canals are performed by creating a hole through the tooth and injecting a medication to kill the bacteria in the tooth. The medication is injected at the level of the pulp or lingual nerves.  It is a simple procedure which doesn’t have any side effects and hence requires little anesthesia and comfort during the procedure.

After eradicating the infection from the tooth, a dental crown is placed over the area to protect the natural tooth from further damage. This is the gist of the Root Canal Treatment. Generally, people are less concerned when it comes to a dental treatment. Hence, most patients avoid getting dental treatment done and also feel that dental procedures are very expensive and time-consuming as multiple visits are required. However, Root canal treatment is a very common dental procedure and can be carried out in one sitting.

How deep is your cavity? Is it exposed to the pulp of your teeth?

  • Indirect Pulp Capping or Filling: This pulp treatment is instituted when the decay is very near the pulp but just not reached the pulp. Further, the pulp remains intact, but is exposed after the decay is completely removed by your dentist. The usual material used for this purpose is calcium hydroxide, which not only soothes the pulp but also plays important in re-mineralization near the affected area.
  • Complete Pulpectomy or Root Canal Treatment: This pulp therapy treatment is instituted when the decay has reached the pulp. Further, the pulp is partially or completely damaged. Your dentist removes the entire damaged pulp from the pulp from the pulp chamber as well as the roots. The roots are then filled (usually with Gutta Percha) immediately or after a few dressings of cotton embedded in medicine.

Yes! You heard right! Root Canal Treatment Possible in Few Hours!

Ideally speaking a root canals procedure is not as painful as a patient would anticipate when done with good hands. The pain related to root canal infection is mostly anxiety related or related to other medical conditions. The throbbing pain which patients would feel is due to grossly carious tooth as the pulp already exposed to the outer surface. Depending upon the severity of the pain from mild, moderate to severe, local anaesthesia is injected.
