Gone are the days when ROOT CANALS were a painful nightmare. We bring you the contemporary age of dentistry that offers you painless treatment.

What is a root canal treatment?
Root canal treatment, also called as endodontic treatment, is the process of removing infected soft tissue from your tooth, and
replacing it by an artificial inert material. This procedure saves the tooth and relieves patient’s pain.

When could you need a root canal?
 Persistent toothache
 Deep cavities
 Broken or discoloured tooth
 Tooth is sensitive to heat or cold
 Dental abscess

What is procedure of root canal treatment.?
 The dentist gives you local anaesthetic.
 The dentist makes an opening in the tooth to reach the root canal system and the damaged pulp.
 Using very fine and advanced dental instruments, the dentist removes the pulp by cleaning and enlarging the root canal system.
 After the canal is cleaned, the dentist fills and seals the canal with the help of inert material called Gutta-Percha.
 The opening of tooth is then sealed with either a temporary or permanent filling.

What after the root canal Treatment ?
A treated tooth is often restored with a filling and a crown, which often last for a lifetime.

Many patients associate root canals with pain and discomfort.
But local anesthetics and advancements in modern dentistry have made root canals highly tolerable procedures that are often no less comfortable than getting a standard filling. Upon completion, a restored tooth that has undergone a root canal will blend in with surrounding teeth – virtually undetectable to the average eye.
