Root Canal treatment process

Step 1: Local Anaesthesia

First of all, local anaesthesia is administered to the tooth which is to be treated. This is done in order to numb the tooth and surrounding areas. Then the endodontist drills an opening to access the pulp chamber.

Step 2: Cleaning and disinfecting

Using special files the endodontist cleans out the infected, diseased and dead pulp from the canals. The procedure does not cause any pain as the area is numb due to anaesthesia, and the tissue that is removed is dead. Once all the infected and dead tissue is removed, the canals are disinfected using disinfectants.

Step 3: Shaping

The canals are then shaped with fine instruments so that they can be filled with the root canal fillings and sealed. During the process of shaping, the irrigation method is used to wash and clean the canals and remove the debris, before inserting the fillings and sealing the tooth.

Step 4: Cementing of crown

First, a temporary cover material which acts as a seal is placed above the filling. This covering material is kept in place until a crown which looks like a normal tooth is placed on top of the treated tooth. Finally, the crown is cemented in place.
