Root Canal Treatment
Endodontics is the speciality of dentistry that deals with the tooth pulp and tissues surrounding the root of a tooth. The pulp, which contains nerves; arterioles and venules as well as lymphatic tissue and fibrous tissue, can become diseased or injured and thus is unable to repair itself. The pulp then dies and endodontic or root canal treatment is required .
As the infection progresses, these symptoms often disappear as the pulp dies. Your tooth might appear to have healed, but the infection has in fact spread through the root canal system. Further symptoms:
It’s important to see your dentist if you develop toothache. If your tooth is infected, the pulp can’t heal by itself.
If retreatment is not an option, ENDODONTIC SURGERY can be considered. This surgery involves making an incision that allows access to the tip of the root.
The procedure is normally only recommended after one or more root canal treatments have been attempted, and have failed. Since the problem occurs near the apex of the root, the procedure is often an effective way to treat a persistent infection.
While there are excellent methods of tooth replacement (like dental implants), which involve more complex treatment and they can be costly. An apicoectomy is generally a permanent and cost – effective solution which can help the tooth last for the rest of your life.
Here, we use potent and dexterous materials like MTA and BIODENTINE to repair such defects and thus improve the prognosis and longevity of the tooth concerned.
During root canal treatment there might be unintentional separation of the instrument in the canal owing to various reasons like
These fractured instruments can be a hindrance to the goals of cleaning, shaping and filling root canals and thus affect the outcome of the treatment.
