Root Canal Treatment in Surat, Gujarat
It’s totally normal if you have had an instant nervous or anxious feeling when you found out you needed a root canal but honestly, technology, training, and research have made a huge difference in making the procedure efficient and pain-free. Most of us consider root canal treatment to be torture and relate it with severe pain and discomfort. But to our delight, in this new world of dental care, a root canal procedure when performed by a skilled dentist is almost painless and sometimes can even be completed in a single visit.
What is Root Canal Treatment (RCT)?
The center part within the tooth, known as the pulp, has blood vessels, nerves, and living connective tissues, which get infected or inflamed due to deep cavities. So when the damage or decay reaches deep into the pulp layers of the tooth, it results in severe toothache or dental sensitivity. Root canal or endodontic treatment is performed to save a grossly damaged or infected tooth, which might otherwise have to be removed completely.
How is a Root Canal Treatment done?
The process of RCT involves the removal of damaged pulp and infection to relieve the tooth pain and fully renew oral health. It's a multi-step procedure that usually takes 1-2 sittings, but can take longer based on the condition of the tooth and the level of infection. Later, a dental crown is made to restore the tooth for better function.
It is performed under local anesthesia, using the latest equipment which includes the apex locator (which tells us the exact extent of the root canal reducing the need for unnecessary radiation exposure), high magnification using loupes, or a microscope, and the latest rotary instruments to achieve the best root canal treatment.
Root Canal vs. Tooth Extraction, Which is better? Can I get a tooth pulled instead of a root canal?
In most cases, root canal therapy is a better way to treat an infected tooth than an extraction. Pulling out your natural tooth needs an immediate artificial replacement to avoid future sequel problems associated with the missing teeth. Tooth removal can be an easy and economic escape but it seriously turns out to be an expensive affair in the long term.
However, there are exceptions, such as if the tooth has suffered extreme damage. Lately, due to much-advanced technology & techniques, we at NxtDent could save almost 90-95% of the teeth of our patients. We will carefully analyze your oral health before making a treatment recommendation.
