When do you need a Rootcanal?.....

SIGNS THAT NEED ROOT CANAL.
In this part we have shared some points regarding root canal treatment

WHAT IS ROOT CANAL??

Root canal treatment is a procedure involving complete removal of infected pulp(inner layer containing blood vessel) and replacing the canal with compact filling material.
In short terms called as RCT , also includes complete cleaning and shaping of the canal.
The Dentist usually carries RCT only when some of the clinical findings are seen as signs that need root canal.

WHAT ARE ALL THE SIGNS THAT NEED ROOT CANAL????

In certain clinical conditions such as :
  • Severe tooth ache
  • Prolonged tooth sensitivity
  • Teeth discoloration
  • Recurrent boils 

Any one of these clinical findings exists the Dentist will decide the treatment plan for management.

SEVERE TOOTHACHE!!!

Sever toothache occurs due to untreated decay as it will progress to create pain and damage to the teeth structure.(Because the decay causing bacteria will destroy the tooth)
Here the root canal treatment plays a major role to save the tooth from further destruction(if only the remaining tooth structure  is adequate for the procedure).

TOOTH SENSITIVITY!!!

Many people suffer from tooth sensitivity.
It occurs due to exposure of inner layers when the outer layer got removed, so that when exposed to hot or cold or sweets causes sensitivity.
When the inner pulp getting exposed RCT should be carried by the Dentist
In some people extreme sensitivity due to worn off tooth structure ,it is advisable to maintain the crown height by crowns accompanied by RCT

DISCOLORATION!!!

People concern increases towards the esthetics.
In certain traumatic conditions ,the tooth get discolored because of death pulp results in non-vitality(the tooth becomes irresponsible)
There are certain conditions that affect the esthetics (e.g: fluorosis,amelogenesis imperfecta,dentinogenesis imperfecta.)
In these conditions ,whether enamel or dentin will be defective so that it easily exposes the pulp,  root canal treatment should be decided than the crowns should be given by the Dentist.

RECURRENT GUM BOILS!!!!!!

Gum boils are the collective source of infection
Occurs as a result of improper oral hygiene , bacteria starts to destroy the gums and appear as frequent boils.
Drainage of the boils should be accompanied by root canal therapy for complete eradication of bacteria, to prevent further infection.
