The Procedure of Root Canal Treatment
The dentist evaluates the dental condition of the patient and initiates the procedure through a treatment plan. The digital imaging system is used to take the X-Ray of the mouth. It helps to indicate the decay and the damage caused by the infection. Anesthesia is used to numb the area during the treatment. The dentist uses a dental dam to cover the tooth and keep it dry.
An opening is made in the infected tooth to remove the infected pulp. The area is decontaminated and filled with a biocompatible material. It is cemented into the teeth by sealing the tooth from further decay. Artificial dental prostheses like the dental crown are used for the complete restoration of the tooth. The entire process may take multiple appointments at the dentistry for completion.
Aftercare for the Tooth
The patient is advised to follow good dental care at home. Brushing and flossing teeth regularly is essential to avoid tooth decay. Fluoride toothpaste is prescribed to provide better care to the tooth. The patient should also schedule a dental visit for regular dental checkups.
