Root Canal Treatment (RCT)


Root canal is a treatment to repair and save a badly damaged or infected tooth instead of removing it. The term “root canal” comes from cleaning of the canals inside a tooth’s root. Decades ago, root canal treatments often were painful. With dental advances and local anaesthetics, most people have little if any pain during a root canal. In fact, it’s probably more painful living with a decayed tooth. Root canal alternatives include extracting the damaged tooth, no further treatment, or replacing the tooth with a dental implant, bridge or removable partial denture.

    Teeth have a soft core called dental pulp. The pulp extends from the crown — the visible part of the tooth — to the tip of the tooth’s root in the jawbone. The pulp contains nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue. When a tooth is cracked or chipped or has a deep cavity, bacteria can enter the pulp. Injury to the tooth also can cause pulp damage and inflammation. Left untreated, bacteria and decaying material can cause a serious infection or a tooth abscess, leading to pulp death, bone loss and loss of the tooth itself. Signs and symptoms may include swelling around your face and neck, a hole in your tooth, toothache or tooth pain, gum swelling, and temperature sensitivity.


    Here are some signs that indicate you might need a root canal…..

    A chipped or cracked tooth:

    Many chipped and cracked teeth are the result of an accident or biting on something hard. Even the tiniest chip or hairline crack in your tooth is enough to allow harmful bacteria into the inner area of your tooth to gradually cause decay and set up an infection. If you seek treatment for a chipped or cracked tooth immediately, you likely can avoid a full-blown infection and the need for root canal therapy.

    Persistent toothache:

    The truth is, that not all types of tooth pain are indications for a root canal, so it can be difficult during those early stages of a problem to know if better oral hygiene efforts can solve the issue or if dental work is required. Obviously, a horrible toothache is a major sign that you may need a root canal. It may be a continuous throb or it may come and go, but strong and persistent tooth pain, especially if it gets worse when eating, biting down, or otherwise disturbing the tooth, is a signal that you need to make an appointment to visit the dentist as soon as possible.

    Lingering Sensitivity:

    Painful sensitivity to hot or cold that does not dissipate quickly is a possible sign of damage to the nerve within your tooth, and this can be an indicator that you may need a root canal.

    A Darkened or Discoloured Tooth:

    Has one of your teeth suddenly turned grey or black? While some tooth discoloration is common, and can be amended with a teeth whitening treatment, having a severely discoloured tooth is indicative of severe tooth decay or the breakdown of internal tissue and might be a sign that root canal treatment is needed.


    Swelling does not always indicate that there is a need for root canal surgery. However, any swelling of the face and jaw, ranging from barely noticeable to severe, is one of the most common signs that a tooth is infected. Especially if it’s accompanied by swelling in the gums surrounding a tooth, and tooth pain.

    Bump on the gum:

    A pimple-like bump on your gum is a dental abscess and is an indication of a severe infection in the area of your tooth where the sensitive inner layer contains arteries and nerve endings. This results in deep pockets full of pus forming around the tooth root. In addition to being incredibly painful, you may also experience symptoms like facial swelling, swollen lymph nodes, and a fever. An abscess requires immediate treatment with antibiotics and a root canal.

    Is Root Canal Process Painful?
    No, RCT is done under local anesthesia and you won’t feel any pain or sensitivity.
    How many times do I need to visit you ?
    Generally RCT is done in one visit, but it can take 2-3 visits if your tooth is having inflammatory tissue.
    Do I have to get a cap(crown) over my RCT tooth ?
    Yes, in mostly all rc treated tooth require cap(crown) so that the tooth does not fracture in future.
    How long will my RCT treated tooth last?
    If RCT is done properly step by step and then restored adequately (in most situations with a crown), it can last as long as your natural tooth.
    What happens if I do not get my RCT done?
    The infection may spread to the apex(tip) of the root of your tooth and even to the surrounding bone which may lead to abscess drainage (pus drainage) from the gums.
