What is a Root Canal Treatment?
A Root Canal Treatment is a procedure done by a Root Canal Specialist also known as an Endodontist. It aims at saving severely decayed or damaged teeth and is always preferred over extraction as it retains your natural tooth. Also, not replacing teeth after an extraction can have severe consequences on your neighbouring teeth health. In A Root Canal Treatment, the inner layer of the tooth known as the pulp is disinfected and filled using a special material. The tooth is then filled or protected using a dental crown if required. Tooth pain is one of the possible indications that you may require root canal treatment.

How Long Does a Root Canal Treatment Take?
Depending upon the severity of infection, the duration of a Root Canal Treatment can vary. Sometimes, Root canal procedure can be completed in a single sitting as well. In case of a severely infected tooth, a root canal specialist may even require 2- 3 sittings to complete the Root canal procedure.
What is the Recovery after Root Canal Treatment
The recovery post Root Canal Treatment takes around 2-7 days. A little discomfort for a few days post root canal treatment is normal and is common in cases where the tooth was severely infected before the procedure. Oral hygiene post treatment should be maintained to ensure your teeth stay healthy.
Post-treatment Dental Care
• Your Root canal specialists instructions on how to care for your tooth while recovering and for pain management should be carefully followed after the root canal procedure.
• Tenderness in the area is normal after the anaesthesia wears off along with mild soreness. These are relieved through over-the-counter pain medication but always consult your doctor first.
• Your treated tooth may feel slightly different than your other teeth for some time.
• To avoid damaging the treated tooth until it is fully restored to its health, do not bite on hard food. Warm salt-water gargles are also recommended.
• Your doctor will check to see if you need to put a crown on the tooth in order to reinforce it.
• Maintain good oral hygiene and regularly follow up with your dentist in order to achieve a full recovery and to keep your teeth healthy.
