I was having toothache for months and recently my dentist has advised for Root Canal Treatment (RCT). What is a root canal and how is it done? Is it painful? Please help me with my queries.

A root canal is a treatment to repair and save a badly damaged or infected tooth. Very nominal pain can be felt.

The thought of a root canal may make you fearful or uneasy, if you aren`t familiar with the procedure. There are common misconceptions that endodontic treatments such as root canals cause pain and/or illness and should be avoided at all costs.

This is a very costly dental treatment. But one must do it from a very well reputed place so that it lasts for a longer time.

This treatment consists of the dentist drilling a hole through the chewing surface of your tooth to reach the nerve inside the tooth which is referred to as the pulp. The pulp extends down the tooth`s root and must be removed so that infection can be cured or prevented. Thin metal wires are inserted into the tooth down to the base of the root canal and the pulp is extracted. This prevents it from getting irritated in the future and causing pain which can result from an infection chewing or sensitivity to hot and cold food and drinks. Once the pulp is removed most dentists will fill the canals with a rubbery gel effectively sealing it off. This step will prevent bacteria from making it back into the cavity and causing future problems for the patient. The chewing surface is then replaced with a temporary filling which remains for at least two weeks before a permanent filling or a crown is put in.
