What is the Root Canal Treatment?

Root canal treatment is a dental procedure that is performed when the pulp of a tooth becomes infected or inflamed. The pulp is the soft tissue inside the tooth that contains nerves and blood vessels. When the pulp becomes infected or inflamed, it can cause pain, swelling, and other complications. Root canal treatment is a common procedure that is performed at Zia Medical Center, Dubai and we can help to save a damaged tooth and prevent the need for extraction.

Procedure of Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment involves removing the infected or inflamed pulp from the tooth and replacing it with a filling material. The procedure is typically performed in one or two visits.
The steps involved in root canal treatment are as follows:

  1. Examination: The dentist will examine the tooth and take X-rays to determine the extent of the damage.
  2. Anesthesia: The dentist will administer local anesthesia to numb the area around the affected tooth.
  3. Access: The dentist will make an opening in the top of the tooth to access the pulp.
  4. Cleaning: The dentist will remove the infected or inflamed pulp from the tooth and clean the pulp chamber and root canals.
  5. Filling: The dentist will fill the pulp chamber and root canals with a rubber-like material called gutta-percha.
  6. Crown: In most cases, the tooth will need to be protected with a crown to prevent further damage.

Benefits of Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment offers several benefits, including:

  1. Pain relief: Root canal treatment can relieve the pain and discomfort associated with an infected or inflamed tooth pulp.
  2. Saves the tooth: Root canal treatment can save a damaged tooth from extraction, which can help to maintain proper chewing and speaking abilities.
  3. Prevents further damage: Root canal treatment can prevent further damage to the tooth and surrounding tissues.
  4. Improved oral health: Root canal treatment can improve overall oral health by removing infected or inflamed pulp from the tooth.
