The endodontist- a dental practitioner who is specialized in Internal tooth pathology and root canal treatment, diagnoses the problem with the help of X-rays and other visual aids to come up with a treatment plan. Tooth extraction may be suggested in severe cases.

The doctor administers a local anaesthetic to numb the area surrounding the infected tooth, to avoid any unnecessary pain or discomfort as the tooth pulp is a very sensitive region.

The doctor then places a dental dam - A sheet of medical-grade rubber or vinyl to keep the region from any saliva and to ensure the treatment is carried out in a sterile environment.

They remove any damaged dentin on the biting surface for a better visual and accessibility and then proceed to remove the infected tissue with special instruments or drains the abscess with a dental handpiece. The pulp along with dead nervous tissue is removed.

Later, the decontamination of the region takes place. The canals and accessory canals are disinfected with the help of an anti-bacterial solution.

The gaps are then sealed with the help of fillers to avoid any foreign body invasion and the possibility of reinfection. A temporary filling may be used to protect the pulp if the treatment takes place over a period which will be eventually restored by a permanent filling sealed by a post made of metal, porcelain, or plastic. A follow up with the General dentist may be suggested for setting the Crown or reconstruction of the tooth to ensure the fillers are retained.

In case of severe decay or extraction, Veneers, Bridges, and implants are fitted to cover the gap between the teeth.

A skilled dentist will ensure that you are feeling comfortable throughout the procedure. Our clinic is the centre for Best Root canal treatment in Bangalore.
