Most people attend a dental facility when they have acute tooth pain. The fundamental pitfall is that when people are not aware that a specific problem exists, they are ignorant, as is so with dental health, where everything begins with minor concerns that, if ignored, can progress to major ones. The decision to visit a dentist is usually triggered by acute pains in the mouth that intensify and radiate, usually caused by an inflamed and or infected tooth. 

When an examination indicates that the tooth’s pulp is infected, the patient must decide to take on a root canal.  

What is Root Canal Treatment?  

Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic root canal therapy, is a frequent and successful endodontic technique for extracting the infected parts from inside the affected/infected tooth and protecting it against infection and spread to adjacent teeth.

Public opinion is that Root canal treatments are generally painful. However, there is no reason to be scared of undergoing this procedure. We live in an era of advanced technology, allowing us to get through the process quick and hassle-free. Plus, thank God for modern anaesthetic procedures. With a simple anaesthetic administration, you feel absolutely no pain throughout the procedure.

So, what does a root canal entail? It’s usually a three-step procedure in which the material inside a tooth’s root canal, including nerve tissue, is removed. Following that, the canal is cleaned and sealed with a dental substance or filling. A crown, which covers and protects the tooth for a long time, is often the final step.

Significant Benefits of Root Canal Treatment:  

  • Pain-Free Procedure: Root canal treatment is practically painless, and you will likely have less difficulty throughout recovery than if your natural tooth is extracted. Patients who undergo root canals are six times more likely to describe the procedure as painless, especially with current techniques and suitable anaesthetics, than those who have a tooth pulled.
  • Efficient and cost-effective: Due to the extreme follow-up appointments required for a denture, bridge, or implant, tooth extraction has longer treatment timelines than root canal treatments. Also, the costs may be higher. Additionally, most dental insurance policies usually cover endodontic root canal treatments.
  • Enhanced oral hygiene: Poor dental health has been cited as a reason for heart diseases and respiratory infections in several studies. Non-maintenance of adequate dental hygiene might also lead to gastrointestinal illnesses. As a result, having an infected tooth might pose a severe threat to your health. Undergoing root canal treatment can be of immense help.
