Frequently Asked Questions.(FAQ)
A Root Canal is the treatment of the pulp of a tooth. When the pulp tissue of the tooth gets infected due to deep decay or an exposure from a fracture, it results in pain & swelling. This requires the removal of the infection and sealing of the root canal chambers thereby protecting the tooth from future microbial invasion.
With advanced techniques & instruments, vital teeth can be cleaned up and sealed in a day. In most situations a ‘single-sitting’ Root Canal treatment offers a quick decontamination & sealing procedure.
No. In cases where the tooth is associated with a peri-apical infection or in cases of a draining sinus and pus the root canals should be ideally cleaned, medicaments placed and the canals filled at subsequent visits after complete elimination of the infection.
Yes, following Root Canal Treatment, after extirpation of the pulp tissue, a tooth is devoid of its blood supply and becomes brittle. Also, in the case of a badly decayed tooth the restoration needs to be supported. A Crown provides the protection and support and is therefore recommended with all Root Canal Treated Teeth
The cost varies depending on the tooth, single rooted or multiple rooted, on the extent of infection and whether an old failed root canal has to be retreated. To estimate a quote, every case has to be evaluated.
