Root Canal Treatment
Root canal treatment is required to cure a tooth with an infected or decayed nerve. The pulp (the live tissue within the tooth), nerves, germs, and any decay are removed to save the tooth from getting extracted. The resultant space is filled with specific, medicated dental materials that bring the tooth back to its full function.
A root canal treatment is the therapy of choice for saving a tooth that would otherwise die and have to be extracted. Many patients assume that eliminating a troublesome tooth is the best treatment, but they don't understand that extracting (pulling) a tooth is more expensive in the long run and can create serious complications for surrounding teeth. Root canal treatment is quite effective that brings results that last for a lifetime. However, subsequent infections may require a tooth to be retracted. Our dentist at The Cosmetic Clinic, Vashi, Sector 17, and Seawoods, Navi Mumbai, can conduct a root canal treatment in one or several sessions, as per the patient’s choice.
Root Canal Treatment procedure at The Cosmetic Clinic
A rubber dam (a sheet of rubber) will be put around the tooth while it is numb to keep it dry and free of saliva. On top of the tooth, an access hole is formed, and a succession of root canal files are inserted one by one, removing the pulp, nerve tissue, and germs. If there is tooth decay, it will be removed using specific dental devices.
