Root Canal

People are fearful about ROOT-CANAL DENTISTRY TREATMENT Prices (Pune). They think it is very painful procedures in root canal dentistry, but it's a Myth. By this procedure one can save decayed dying tooth. If natural tooth is saved there is no need of an artificial tooth. Pulp is the inner most part of tooth. Pulp lies in the hollow cavity within the tooth. This hollow cavity is called Root-Canal. The pulp contains blood vessels and nerves. It provides nourishment to the tooth through the blood. The root-canal gets infected if the pulp gets exposed. This may happen due to decay, tooth fracture, attrision (wear & tear of the tooth), abrasion, corrosions etc. At this stage the tooth is very painful and the pain may radiate to head and ear. If it is left untreated the infection may spread to the surrounding areas of bone and gums and eventually causes death of pulp. At this stage tooth is very painful & tender and sensitive to hot or/and cold so it cannot withstand chewing forces. If left untreated tooth abscess and pus may be formed and face is swollen and infection can spread to surrounding head and neck region.

Who needs Root Canal?

Signs and symptoms that may indicate that root canal treatment is needed: a) Tooth pain. The type and degree of pain you experience can vary widely.  • Its intensity can range from just very mild to extreme. It may include a throbbing component. Its character may change as you vary your posture (standing up vs. bending over).  • The pain may only come in response to a stimulus, such as biting pressure or hot foods and beverages. In other instances, its onset may be totally unprovoked.  • The pain sometimes lingers and then fades. In other cases, it may last for hours on end.  b) Gum tenderness or swelling in the area near the tooth. • The amount of swelling can range from very slight (just an area of tenderness) to quite pronounced. It may even extend into your face or neck.  • In cases where the swelling is relatively minor and localized, it typically occurs at a level that approximates the tip of the tooth's root.  • A pimple-like drain for pus may form on your gums.
