Root Canal

The fragile pulp at the middle of the tooth is removed during a root canal. The pulp, which supports tooth growth, is composed of blood vessels, soft tissue, and nerves.
Most of the time, our dentist will use local anaesthesia while performing a root canal.

Root Canal

Bacteria can enter a broken tooth, causing it to decay. Inflammation, discomfort, and swelling result from this. The pulp within the root canal may get contaminated if the pulp inside the tooth develops an infection. By removing the impacted pulp and treating the infection, root canal therapy aims to keep your tooth from needing extraction.

How Are Root Canal Procedures Carried Out?

How are root canals carried out?

When you show up for your consultation, a technician will accompany you to the treatment area, assist you in sitting down, and drape a bib over your neck to shield your clothing from spills.


Your gums will be numbed by a small amount of anaesthetic placed by the dentist close to the troubled tooth. A local anaesthetic will then be injected into your gums when it has had time to take effect. A harsh pinching or scorching feeling is possible, but it will pass soon. Although you’ll be conscious throughout the procedure, you won’t experience any pain.

Pulp Removal:

The endodontist or general dentist will make a tiny incision in the crown of your tooth once it has been completely numb. The dentist will carefully remove the contaminated pulp using files.


The root canals have been cleaned and sanitised with topical antibiotics, the dentist will cover and seal the tooth with gutta-percha, a sealant paste that looks like rubber. Moreover, they may suggest oral antibiotics for you.

Temporary Fillings:

The dentist will fill the tiny gap in the tooth’s crown with a flexible, temporary material. This sealant makes it less likely that saliva may damage the canals.
