Root Canal Treatment

A root canal is a canal, which runs from the base of the root of the tooth to the middle of the crown (the visible part of the tooth). The root canal carries the pulp (a network of blood and nerve cells), which brings the tooth to life.The nerve of the tooth gets damaged due to many reasons. One of the main causes is cavity in the tooth that grows deeper and touches the nerve. Since the cavity is filled with bacteria, the root canal gets inflamed and causes pain.

Other reasons that may damage the teeth are accidental cracks or infection from gums recession to the base of roots. In such cases, root canal treatments can easily stabilize the position. Root canal treatments is one name that gives many patients shivers when told about it. However, in reality, it is not that bad. Infact, it is an instant pain reliever and the best treatment to retain the original teeth. A Root canal treated tooth serves its purpose and function just as a healthy tooth.

What is root canal?

A root canal is a narrow passage in the tooth through which the blood vessel & nerves enter the tooth.

What is Root canal Treatment?

Removal of the infected nerves & blood vessels from the pulp chamber & root canal is known as Root Canal Treatment. It is professionaly called an Endodontic Treatment.

How does a root canal get infected?

Decay spreads from an unattended deep cavity to the pulp chamber & further down to the root canal leading to infection of the pulp known as Pulpitis.. This infection can further spread beyond the tip of the tooth leading to an Abscess around the tooth in the bone leading to a more severe infection. Root canal can also get infected in case of fractured or injured tooth. Sometimes in case of severe gum infection, the infecton / pus travels from the gum to the tooth necessitating Root canal treatments.
