A root canal is endodontic therapy is carried out to relieve the discomfort brought on by a diseased pulp in the tooth.
This process is made by extracting diseased or damaged tissue from the affected tooth’s crown and root, cleaning the tooth’s root canals to remove any microbes, chemically sanitizing the canal, and placing dental fillings in the cleaned canals.
After applying local anesthesia, the tooth will be separated to prevent saliva contamination and prevent the mouth from becoming overly saturated with cleaning agents.
The pulp which is in the middle of the tooth and contains the nerve is then reached by drilling through the top of the tooth.
To clean the tiny canal special tools are used to remove all the demege from the tooth.
The interior of the canals is cleaned using a variety of cleaners.
To prevent reinfection of the tooth’s interior, the dentist moves on to obstructing the canal(s) in a subsequent step or during the same appointment.
Finally, the tooth will be closed by fillings or a crown.
You can take care of your teeth after the procedure to avoid a root canal infection by doing several things, including:
Brush and floss your teeth after every meal.
Use mouthwash to prevent any germs.
Visit your dentist for a final crown or other permanent reconstruction.
Schedule dental cleaning sessions every six months.
