Painless Root Canal Treatment
A last hope to save your Tooth
“Root Canal” is the term used to describe the natural anatomic cavity within the root of the tooth. Towards the coronal aspect of the tooth, this space is referred to as the pulp chamber. It is filled with highly vascularised, loose connective tissues called the dental pulp. Its function is to provide nourishment and hydration to the teeth, making it more resilient and resistant to fracture from masticatory stress. Additionally, the dental pulp provides sensory function to cold and hot stimuli.
Root Canal treatment involves removal of infected pulp tissue, the subsequent shaping, cleaning and decontamination of the hollows with a small file like instrument and irrigating solutions, and the obturation (filling) of decontaminated canals with an inert filling such as gutta percha. After post endodontic permanent restoration and crown cementation, the tooth continues to function like any other healthy tooth.
