Root Canal Treatment

The root canal and the dental pulp define the vitality of your teeth. The inner most soft tissue layer of the tooth, referred to as dental pulp, is composed of nerve tissue, lymph tissue and blood vessels which are a vital part of a healthy tooth. With severe decay, the exposure of pulp to deep dental caries may lead to the tooth pulp getting affected. Root canal treatment is a restorative procedure that enables the removal of all the diseased and infected debris of nerve tissue, lymph tissue, blood tissue, bacteria and infection from the pulp chamber and its associated canals. A root canal treatment done on time can prevent pain, infection and even tooth loss. With advanced pain management procedures and use of rotary and other cutting edge technology, RCTs have come a long way in terms of comfort, the ability to save grossly damaged teeth and in providing a long-lasting restoration.

A timely treatment can save your natural teeth

The Procedure

The treatment plan for the root canal procedure is performed after a set of pre-treatment protocols which includes examination, low radiation Digital X-rays using a state of the art RVG machine, medications, oral prophylaxis (if oral hygiene mandates it) and instructions to be followed prior to the treatment.

The affected tooth is isolated, guarded and numbed through anaesthesia. Using a drill, the pulp chamber and connected root canals, including the apex of the root are cleansed to remove every single trace of bacteria, infection and debris. In the first visit usually a temporary sealant is used following proper disinfection. Once the infection is eliminated the canal area is sealed using a bio-compatible, anti-bacterial filling to achieve complete cure. Post the healing process a permanent filling or a crown is placed to restore the teeth.

Root canal treatment is performed with a high degree of delicateness, precision and care to minimize any kind of damage to the surrounding ligaments and bone. In cases where the damage is in excess, one may need to go for therapy of the surrounding gums and bone. The RCTs may be a single sitting or multiple-visit procedure based on the infection and is followed with a crown or restoration of the tooth.

Your care


In cases where the infection is deep-rooted, a regular root canal treatment may not successfully address the concern. An Apicoectomy procedure involves surgically slicing the tip of the infected root, to completely remove the infection and inhibit any infection in the future.

More on Root Canal Treatment

A re-treatment may become necessary in cases where a new decay is exposed. A cracked or a loose filling can expose the teeth to a new infection and also in cases where complete healing of the previous root canal treatment was not ensured.

Complicated, curved or narrow canals which went undetected and so were not treated in the initial treatment are one of the main reasons. Restoration with a crown before complete healing has occurred, improper crown fabrication, underlying gum problems left unattended are some of the other causes. At ClinicGP, we adhere to the smallest of details and hence complications are always put at bay and re-treatments rarely occur.

Yes. Tooth pulp consists of nerves and blood vessels. Pulp infection initially can be very painful but as the infection spreads and pulp begins to die, you would no longer feel the pain. In these cases you may be able to observe a gradual tooth discolouration also. However, the latent infection may re-surface at any time in the future causing more severe sequelae. It is advisable to reach your dentist before any kind of discomfort, sudden pain, facial swelling or oozing pus suddenly appears.

With the advancement of effective pain management techniques, root canal treatment is no longer seen as a harsh procedure and is treated without pain. You may experience tenderness and discomfort after the procedure for which you would be suggested medication and care.

Although all cases do not mandate the use of antibiotics and may be avoided, especially in the case of intentional RCTs or sterile RCTs, it is safest to follow the dentist’s medical instructions for the prescribed duration to avoid untoward complications.

Post the access opening which is the first step, you may be given an open dressing (with cotton or gauze) or a temporary filling (a cement). Follow all instructions to avoid pain and injury to the tooth and soft tissues. Following the single or multiple visit RCT, a permanent restoration is given after which the tooth is prepared to receive its crown if there is no pain or discomfort. This is usually done some time after the first visit. A set of radiographs are taken at different stages to assess the canals and to observe the treatment and its effect on the surrounding bone. Therefore, take note and follow all the instructions provided by our team to protect your teeth from any kind of damage, until it is totally restored. This includes food, medication and dental care as prescribed.
