The Procedure In Brief
A Deep Infection
Root canal treatment is undertaken when a infection to a tooth, exposes the tooth’s pulp( containing the nerve and blood supply) and the root becomes infected or inflamed.
In Order To Reach The Pulp Of The Tooth
An opening made through the crown of the tooth to the pulp chamber.
Removing The Infected/Inflamed Tissue
Special instrument called files are used to clean the inner surface of the roots and remove the unhealthy pulp out of the canals. Irrigation with saline , sodium hypochlorite and chlorhexidine solution is used to help clean the canals and remove debris.
Filling The Canals
The canals are then filled with a permanent inert material called gutta-percha.
Rebuilding The Tooth
A crown, sometimes called a cap is placed over the top of the tooth.It provides the necessary support to the tooth and the natural looks and anatomy of the tooth is recreated.
In some cases, a post made up glass reinforced fiber is placed in the root.This provides the crown with additional support.
