Want to understand what is root canal treatment and cost of root canal treatment?
A root canal treatment involves drilling a hole into a decayed tooth and removing the soft centre, known as the dental pulp. The dental pulp is made up of connective tissue, nerves and blood supply, and extends into the roots of the tooth. The crown, or surface of the tooth that is used for chewing, may also be replaced if necessary. If not treated on time this dental condition can cause extreme pain and eventually may lead to a dental abscess formation.
However, a root canal treatment can save a badly infected or damaged tooth. The tooth may have become infected or damaged by decay, repeated dental work, wear and tear, gum disease, cracked fillings or an injury to the tooth.

Lets learn what is involved in root canal treatment. First, the dentist takes an x-ray of the tooth the tooth to see the shape of the root canals and determine whether there is any infection in the bone around the tooth. They will use a local anaesthetic to numb the area around the tooth before drilling a hole in the tooth to remove the pulp.
Dentist might require multiple x-rays during the procedure.It can take several appointments for the dentist to clean and shape the hole inside the tooth before placing a sterile filling inside. They may also insert a small support into the root canals to strengthen the tooth. They may cap the tooth with an artificial crown if necessary. Root canal treatment helps you to keep your natural tooth in place.
Why would I need a Root Canal Treatment?
When the dental pulp is damaged, bacteria can start to multiply inside the tooth. This can lead to an infection or abscess, which is a pocket of pus that forms at the end of the tooth’s root.
Saving your own tooth if possible is important. It works better than an artificial tooth for biting and chewing. Losing a tooth can lead to other problems in the mouth. Replacing a lost tooth with an artificial one often needs more complex dental procedures. Root canal treatment is often the best way of saving your tooth.

Sometimes there are no symptoms that a tooth needs root canal therapy. More commonly, the signs include:
- severe toothache when chewing
- sensitivity to hot or cold foods or drinks
- darkening of the tooth
