Root Canal Therapy

Endo” is the Greek word for “inside” and “odont” is Greek for “tooth.” Endodontic treatment or Root Canal therapy treats the inside of the tooth

dental clinics

To understand endodontic treatment, it helps to know something about the anatomy of the tooth. Inside the tooth, under the white enamel and a hard layer called the dentin, is a soft tissue called the pulp. The pulp contains blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue and creates the surrounding hard tissues of the tooth during development.

Endodontic treatment is necessary when the pulp, the soft tissue inside the root canal, becomes inflamed or infected. The inflammation or infection can have a variety of causes:

  • Deep Decay extending upto or reaching into the pulp chamber
  • Decay around old fillings or fractured fillings
  • Cracked or chipped teeth
  • Trauma to the front tooth which can discolour the tooth
  • Severe attrition or wear of the tooth
  • If pulp inflammation or infection is left untreated, it can cause pain or lead to an abscess.

Symptoms of teeth requiring Root Canal Therapy

  • Acute pain or sensitivity to sweet, hot or cold foods
  • Radiating pain to the ear or head
  • Tenderness to touching the tooth with finger or while chewing
  • Pain intensifying while sleeping or lying down
  • Pus or an abscess around the gum margin of the tooth
  • Swelling internally around the tooth or externally around the cheek
  • Foul smell or taste in the mouth

How does endodontic treatment save the tooth?

The dentist removes the inflamed or infected pulp, carefully cleans and shapes the inside of the canal, a channel inside the root, then fills and seals the space. After restoration, a crown is placed to reinforce the strength of the tooth. If the crown is not placed, the tooth fractures over time. Below is an illustration of the root canal treatment.

Rotary Endodontics

dental solutions

The introduction of nickel-titanium (NiTi) rotary files to endodontics almost two decades ago has changed the way root canal preparations are performed, enabling more complicated root canal systems to be shaped with fewer procedural errors.

Rotary endodontics employs electrically-powered instruments to perform the root canal treatment rather than traditional stainless-steel manual files. The electric hand tool is equipped with a tip constructed out of nickel titanium – a material that is five times more flexible than stainless steel.

Due to the flexibility and unique movement of the nickel-titanium instrument, it can be inserted deeply into a curved root canal without stretching or damaging the passageway. This makes for a quick and reliable procedure.

Current experimental and clinical evidence shows that NiTi rotaries promote improved preparation quality and specifically reduce the incidence of gross preparation errors.

Advantages of rotary endodontics?

  • The nickel titanium cleans out the root canal much more smoothly and consistently.
  • Rotary endodontic procedures are more reliable with less chance of complications.
  • Rotary tools make the root canal procedure much faster.
  • The electric tools are much quieter and smoother, without the loud grinding that accompanies manual files.
  • The fast treatment time, in conjunction with quieter instruments, make for a much more comfortable and less frightening experience for patients.

Although using a manual file will still clean out the root canals thoroughly, most dentists and patients prefer rotary endodontics. In fact, it was largely the loud grinding of manual files that gave root canal therapy the reputation of being a “scary” or “undesirable” procedure. With rotary endodontics, patients feel much more comfortable during the treatment and barely notice the whirring of the tools.
