Why would I need a Root Canal Treatment?
Endodontic treatment is necessary when the pulp, the soft tissue inside the root canal, becomes inflamed or infected.
The inflammation or infection can have a variety of causes:
- Deep decay
- Repeated dental procedures on the tooth
- Crack or chip in the tooth
- An injury to a tooth
If pulp inflammation or infection is left untreated, it can cause pain or lead to an abscess.
What are the signs of needing Root Canal Treatment?
Signs to look for include pain, prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold, tenderness to touch and chewing, and discoloration of the tooth. Sometimes, however, there are no symptoms.
How does Root Canal Treatment save the tooth?
The endodontist removes the inflamed or infected pulp, carefully cleans and shapes the inside of the canal, then fills and seals the space. Afterwards, we will place a crown or other restoration on the tooth to protect and restore it to full function. After restoration, the tooth continues to function like any other tooth.
Salient Features of Automated Root Canal Treatment:
- Single Visit
- Less treatment time
- Less discomfort
- Better result than Manual RCT
- No difference in treatment cost.
Though the number of visits for the root canal treatment is decided by the clinical condition of the particular tooth involved, more than 90% of the cases can be done in single visit using Automated RCT.
Automation makes it possible to complete the treatment in amazingly less time when compared to manual RCT and also provides an excellent outcome and less discomfort post operatively.
How It Works:
Specially designed Nickel Titanium instruments are used instead of conventional hand instruments made of stainless Steel. These instruments clean the root canal completely without damaging the roots.
Advantage - Automation
Automated root canal treatment is a boon for old people who prefer a safe and quicker treatment. Though the instruments are imported, the cost of the automated RCT is the same as that of manual RCT.
