What is a Root Canal Treatment?
To understand a ROOT CANAL TREATMENT
, You should know what a Root canal is.
Our natural teeth (fig 1) Consists of Enamel the first layer which is the hardest structure in a human body, then comes the Dentin which Is not as hard as the Enamel and the third is the Pulp. the Pulp is a mixture of nerves and blood vessels. The Pulp is present in a canal shaped structure in the root and thus the name Root canal. The treatment done in root canal is root canal treatment.
Though the Enamel is a very hard structure, the bacteria's will destroy the Enamel by producing acids and creates cavities (DENTAL CARIES). The Bacteria's present in the cavities will proceed into the Dentin and then into the Pulp.
The Pulp when infected gives pain. some times the infection may go out of the root and produce pain and severe swelling in the cheeks. so in these stages the ROOT CANAL TREATMENT is recommended.
In the ROOT CANAL TREATMENT first the Dental caries in the Enamel and Dentin is removed, then the infected Pulp is removed with specialized instruments called Endodontic Files. And then the root canal is cleaned with disinfectants and then the Root canal is filled with a non irritant material called Gutta percha and then the Root canal is closed. Then the tooth will remain painless. sometimes there may be an extensive removal of natural crown during the caries removal, in such cases an artificial crown made of Ceramic/zirconium/nickel chromium metal is fixed.(fig 2)
