A root canal is a dental procedure that treats the infected or damaged pulp inside the tooth. The pulp, located in the center of the tooth, contains nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissues. When the pulp becomes infected or inflamed due to decay, trauma, or deep cavities, a root canal is performed to remove the affected pulp and save the tooth from extraction.

Some common signs that indicate the need for a root canal include severe toothache, prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures, tenderness or swelling in the surrounding gums, darkening or discoloration of the tooth, and the presence of a pimple-like bump on the gum near the affected tooth. However, only a professional examination can determine if a root canal is necessary.

The root canal procedure typically involves the following steps:
a. Anesthesia: Local anesthesia is administered to ensure your comfort throughout the treatment.
b. Access and Cleaning: A small access hole is made in the tooth to reach the infected pulp. The damaged pulp is carefully removed, and the root canals are thoroughly cleaned and shaped.
c. Filling and Sealing: The cleaned root canals are filled with a biocompatible material called gutta-percha. The tooth is then sealed to prevent reinfection.
d. Restoration: After the root canal, a dental crown or filling may be placed on the tooth to restore its strength, functionality, and appearance.
Root canals offer several advantages, including:
a. Pain Relief: By removing the infected pulp, root canal treatment effectively eliminates toothache and discomfort.
b. Tooth Preservation: Saving your natural tooth through a root canal helps maintain your smile’s natural appearance, bite, and chewing function.
c. Preventing Further Complications: Untreated dental infections can spread to the surrounding tissues, causing abscesses and potentially affecting your overall health. Root canals prevent these complications.
d. Aesthetic Restoration: After a root canal, a dental crown or filling is placed, restoring the tooth’s appearance and protecting it from further damage.
