The pulp is a soft tissue that forms the centre of the tooth. During tooth development, the pulp contains blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue. It is responsible for the formation of the tooth's surrounding hard structures. Endodontic therapy is used to treat the interior of the tooth. When a tooth decays and is not treated, an infection can travel to the pulp and underlying bone, causing pain and pus production. The Root Canal Treatment, or RCT, is the most frequent endodontic treatment.
Endodontic therapy is recommended in the following cases:
Step 1: The dentist will examine the tooth using an X-ray to determine the degree of the infection. If necessary, he or she may prescribe medication prior to beginning therapy. The number of sittings necessary for treatment will be determined by the dentist based on the severity of the infection and the intricacy of the therapy.
Step 2: To guarantee that you are not in discomfort during treatment, the dentist will use a local anaesthetic substance to numb the tooth and surrounding region.
Step 3: The dentist will get entry to the chamber containing the nerves and blood vessels. The length of the root canals is measured, and contaminated pulp is extracted.
Step 4: Using dental files, the canals will be shaped and cleaned. This will be completed at the next visit. To ensure that no infection is left behind, the tooth is also cleansed with medicine and saline.
Step 5: After the root canals have been made, they are filled and sealed with a unique rubber-like filling substance. Before being filled with a permanent tooth-colored substance, the crown region of the tooth is filled with a temporary filling material.
Step 6: The dentist examines the tooth after a week and begins the procedure of fitting a crown on the treated tooth. The crown is put on the tooth to safeguard and return it to full function, as well as to assure the tooth's long life.
