Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment (RCT), also known as endodontic treatment, is a dental treatment used to treat an infected or diseased tooth. Each tooth has three layers: enamel, dentin, and pulp. The pulp is the soft tissue inside the tooth that contains nerves and blood vessels. When the pulp becomes infected or damaged, it can cause a lot of pain and can lead to more serious dental problems if left untreated. This treatment is necessary when the pulp, which is the innermost part of the tooth behind the white enamel and dentin, becomes infected or inflamed due to decay, trauma, defective crown, deep decay, multiple dental treatments, or a crack/hole in the tooth.


During a root canal treatment, the dentist will use a local anesthetic to numb the region around the tooth. They will next make a small hole at the crown of the tooth to reach the pulp. They will use little instruments to delicately remove the damaged or infected pulp and clean out the root canals. Once the canals have been cleaned, they will be inserted rubber-like substance called gutta-percha and filled with an adhesive material to prevent further infection. After the root canal treatment, the dentist will place a temporary filling in the tooth. This is to safeguard it while a permanent filling or crown is being produced. Once the permanent filling or crown is in place, the tooth will look and work normally.

The dentist will use local anesthesia to numb the tooth and surrounding area, so the patient doesn't feel any pain during the procedure.


Root canal

The root canal will be filled with a rubber-like material called gutta-percha to seal it and prevent further infection.


3D CBCT Imaging

Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is a special type of X-ray machine that produces 3D images of teeth, bone, and soft tissues. This technology allows dentists to see the internal structures of a tooth and its surrounding tissues, which helps in the diagnosis and treatment planning of root canal therapy.


Dental Operating Microscope

A dental operating microscope (DOM) is a high-powered microscope that allows dentists to visualize the inside of a tooth at high magnification. This technology provides enhanced visualization, illumination, and precision during root canal therapy, making it easier to locate and treat canals that may be difficult to see with the naked eye.

DTX Studio Implant


Micro-endodontics is a specialized form of endodontic treatment that uses tiny instruments to clean and shape the root canals. These instruments are designed to fit into the narrow and complex anatomy of the tooth, allowing for a more thorough cleaning and a better outcome


Dental lasers

Dental lasers can be used to remove infected tissue from inside the tooth's root canal. Lasers are highly precise and can target specific areas, making them an effective tool for root canal treatment.

  • Avoid eating hard or sticky foods that may damage the tooth or the temporary filling that may be placed after the initial treatment.
  • Avoid alcohol and tobacco for a full 24 hours before the procedure
  • Take a painkiller before the procedure
  • Make sure to brush and floss your teeth thoroughly before the appointment. This will help reduce the risk of infection.
  • Wear comfortable clothing and avoid wearing any jewelry or accessories that may interfere with the procedure.
  • Get a full night’s sleep the evening before the procedure.
  • Take prescribed pain medication as directed by dentist.
  • If you are experiencing any discomfort, you can place an ice pack over the area that was treated for 30 minutes once you arrive home to help reduce any swelling.
  • Please refrain from chewing or eating on the side of your mouth where the dental work was performed while that area is still numb.
  • Brush and floss your teeth as normal but be gentle around the treated tooth.
  • Whenever possible, try to chew on the opposite side of your mouth from the treated tooth until a crown has been placed. The tooth may still be weak and could potentially fracture.
  • It is recommended that you avoid smoking during the first 24 hours after the procedure and minimize smoking during the healing process.
  • It is best to avoid any strenuous exercise for at least 24 hours after dental work.
  • Please avoid consuming crunchy or hard foods that could cause the tooth without a crown to break.
  • Attend all follow-up appointments with dentist to ensure proper healing and restoration of the tooth.

Understanding Root Causes of Dental Issues

tooth damage

Deep decay

When tooth decay progresses to the point where it reaches the inner pulp of the tooth, it can cause an infection.

Gum disease


A tooth injury, such as a crack or fracture, can damage the pulp inside the tooth and lead to an infection.

Congenital absence

Tooth grinding

Continual grinding or clenching of teeth can cause damage to the tooth, leading to pulp inflammation or infection.


Gum disease

Gum disease can cause inflammation or infection to spread from the gums to the roots of the teeth, leading to the need for root canal treatment.

failed root canal

Genetic factors

In some cases, genetics can play a role in the development of tooth decay or the susceptibility to infection.


Bad habits

such as eating food in a poor manner or not cleaning your teeth after eating, especially sugary items like chocolate, can contribute to tooth decay.

tooth injurery

Cracked tooth syndrome

A crack in the tooth can cause pain and sensitivity, and if left untreated, can lead to infection and the need for a root canal.


Bad Hobbies

Unhealthy habits like tobacco and excessive alcohol consumption can lead to dental problems, causing long-term damage to oral health

Our Treatment Process

Examination and Diagnosis

The dentist will first examine the tooth to determine if root canal treatment is necessary. X-rays may be taken to determine the extent of the damage.


Local anesthesia will be administered to numb the area around the tooth being treated.

Access Opening

The dentist will create a small access hole in the top of the tooth to gain access to the pulp chamber and root canals.

Cleaning and Shaping

Using small instruments, the dentist will remove the damaged or infected pulp tissue from the pulp chamber and root canals. The canals will then be cleaned and shaped to prepare them for filling.


The dentist will flush the canals with an antimicrobial solution to remove any remaining bacteria or debris.


The dentist will fill the canals with a rubber-like material called gutta-percha. This material seals the canals and helps to prevent reinfection.
