Root canal treatment often conjures up a frightening picture in your mind, of pain, sharp instruments and multiple visits to the dentist. However, with recent advances in dentistry, root canal treatment is not only painless but also in some cases, can be done in one sitting.

If left unattended the decay in the tooth spreads to the inner layers of the tooth, affects the nerve and then breaks open the bony wall surrounding the tip of the root. Pus accumulates and the tooth becomes painful and tender to touch. In the case of teeth that have suffered traumatic injury; the force of the impact itself sometimes damages the nerve of the involved tooth. As a result, the nerve gets infected resulting in severe pain. In such cases, root canal treatment is advised.

In certain cases, it can be completed in one sitting. Otherwise, it may take 2 to 3 sittings. Capping/ Crowning is mandatory to ensure the best results.

Dental Crown

A crown (often called a cap) is an artificial cover that restores a decayed or damaged tooth to its original shape and size. It is used for protecting the surface of a tooth that is cracked or broken.

Crown is used to protect a tooth that has undergone root canal treatment, to protect teeth with large fillings, to correct a cosmetic problem, to correct a bite problem, to replace existing broken or poorly fitting crowns.
