Root canal treatment basically consists
of removing the infected pulp tissues within the tooth,
causing the pain, and filling the canal space with
a biocompatible material called Gutta Percha, this
is done after obtaining the correct root canal length
using radiographs and shaping the canal space with
special instruments, all this is done under local
anesthesia and hence a painless procedure, usually
done as a single visit or two visit procedure.
The root Canal Treated tooth is then restored, following
which a crown is recommended to prevent tooth fracture
because the tooth tends to become brittle due to loss
of moisture. Additional reinforcement such as root
canal posts may be required during restoration, depending
on the extent of damage to the tooth due to decay
or fracture of the tooth.
Sometimes when there has been long standing infection
or abscess, there may be some soreness associated
with the root canal visit. If this should turn out
to be true, you will be given specific instructions
to follow to minimize the discomfort. When an infection
is present, it may be necessary to take an antibiotic.
If pain should be present, analgesics may need to

it with an artificial tooth (an implant) or constructing
a bridge, a restoration that occupies the space of
the lost tooth by taking the support of the adjacent
two natural teeth. With the advancements in the cosmetics,
and innovations in the materials available today,
this is a more economical option compared to an implant

wear etc can expose the soft, porous structure of
the tooth (dentin), making it susceptible to external

the treatment done at the earliest before it gets
serious and requiring elaborate treatment, if treated
early, it may require only the use of desensitizing
paste and also may require modification in brushing
A diastema is a space between the front teeth. Diastemas
are closed by orthodontics correction or with restorative
materials. In case the space is too large orthodontic
correction is recommended. If the space between the
teeth is not very large, closure usually requires
bonding of composite on the sides of the two adjacent
teeth. Placement of composite onto one tooth can be
done if proper tooth dimensions allow it.

to provide whiter more attractive teeth in case of
