Your tooth is one of the strongest parts of your body. But then, even that can decay.
While enamel does not decay, the nerve tissue and pulp inside the teeth can decay over a period of time due to a number of factors.
So, what do you do when you realise that there is a decay in the teeth? One of the most effective treatments which is done when there is a cavity which has affected the pulp and nerve tissue causing decay, is Root Canal Treatment.
A Root canal is the term which is used to describe the natural cavity within the centre of the teeth.
Root canal procedure aims to repair and practically save a tooth which has been affected and decayed to a great extent. The procedure involves, the removal of the nerves and pulp, cleaning the inside of the tooth and eventually sealing it post the cleaning is done.
If there is no treatment done to clean the tooth, the particular infected tooth will decay and start infecting the other teeth as well.
Now, a traditional root canal treatment is a very painful process but what if there was a root canal procedure which didn’t involve any kind of pain at all?
A Laser root canal treatment is completely painless. Now a laser root canal treatment is done in one or two visits only if there is a follow up required.
The Procedure for Laser Root canal Treatment is:
- A local anesthetic is administered to numb the tooth.
- With the help of a laser dentistry, a hole is made on the crown of the tooth which allows access to the root canal.
- Then the infected pulp is removed.
- The infected area is cleansed to prepare for a root canal filling.
- Once cleansed, the root canal filling is put in place.
- The last step of laser root canal treatment is to seal the tooth and adding a permanent crown on the tooth.
The main advantages of laser root canal treatment is that it is firstly painless and due to the use of laser, the procedure hardly takes half an hour to complete.
