Natural tooth structure comprises of different components namely enamel, dentin and the pulp. Each of these components has specific functions in the tooth structure. When a tooth is decayed or damaged, there may be structural changes that can threaten its existence. A dentist repairs/restores decayed/damaged natural tooth to make sure that it is protected from the danger of falling out. When the pulp of the tooth is infected, the dentist takes steps to remove the pulp and safeguard natural tooth. Endodontics is the branch of dental medicine that is dedicated to studying problems with pulp, which is the innermost component of natural tooth. Root canal treatment is the procedure that is performed to cure the tooth with infected pulp.

Speak to our dentist to know more about how the treatment takes place.Infection of tooth pulp
Enamel is the top-most layer of natural tooth which is followed by dentin. The pulp comprises of nerves and blood cells. It supplies nutrition to the tooth and helps in its healthy growth. When a tooth is injured or decayed, the bacteria can come in contact with the pulp and cause infection. The infection can spread to the root of the tooth and cause problems to supporting structure. The decay may spread to other tooth and cause the tooth to fall out.
Although pain and swelling are some common symptoms, only a dentist can perform thorough oral examination to identify if a pulp is infected or not. X-rays are taken during the process. Once our dentist finds out that root canal treatment is necessary, he explains the same to the patient and receives his/her approval. The treatment is performed with the help of local anesthesia.
The tooth is isolated using a rubber dam and decayed part is removed with the help of dental instruments. An opening is made in the tooth using Waterlase®. The infected pulp is removed and the root canal is cleaned using dental file. The root canal is then sealed and the tooth is filled using appropriate filling materials. The dentist finally uses a Dental Crowns Corona CA to cap the repaired tooth. Instructions are given to patients on how to care for the tooth after the procedure.
