Root Canal

What is a Root Canal Treatment?

Root Canal Treatment is the removal of the infected soft tissue within the tooth and replacing it with an artificial inert ‘filling’ material. This procedure saves the tooth and eliminates dental pain.


When is Root Canal Treatment advised?

  • Constant Toothache during chewing.
  • Sudden Toothache while consuming hot or cold items, which can otherwise be tolerated.
  • Change in Color/Darkening of the tooth.
  • Fracture of the Tooth (due to trauma)
  • Swelling of the gums around the tooth

Is a crown necessary after Root Canal Treatment?

After undergoing a root canal treatment, the tooth will become brittle and  cannot withstand the pressure while biting and chewing. A crown acts as a protective covering on the tooth and prevents the breakdown of tooth structure. So it is mandatory to crown any tooth that has been treated by root canal.
