Root Canal Treatment
Endodontic Therapy, commonly known as Root Canal treatment, is the procedure performed to treat the infected pulp of a tooth. The procedure results in the removal of infection and protects the tooth from any microbial attacks in future.
Root Canal treatment is required when a tooth is injured or a large cavity harms the tooth and the tooth gets infected. The treatment involves the removal of these microbial structures, the subsequent shaping, polishing, the purification of the hollows with small files and irrigating solutions, and the filling of the purified canals with an inert filling.
The procedure of a Root Canal Treatment:
2. Radiography is performed which helps in revealing the length of the root canal.
3. Instruments are used to remove the debris from the root canal and shaping of the wall.
4. Sealing is done once the root canals are totally cleaned and considered infection free. It is generally performed with the rubbery material called Gutta precha.
5. Final restoration involves two activities: setting up of a core and a post. The core is the foundation laid up by the dentists to support the crown and post works as the support to the core.
