About 2 decades back one of the most dreaded dental treatments in dentistry could be root canal treatments. Thanks to the advent of high speed rotary dental instruments innovation for its contribution in its excellence in the ease, simplicity and success rate.
Extraction vs RCT.
As nothing matches original, we advocate retaining one’s natural tooth to the best possible ways, and resort to extraction and replacement only if all other options are ruled out. In those lines root canal treatments work best in retaining one’s natural teeth that are infected, or become painful for various reasons.
How painful is RCT.
Earlier RCT were immensely painful as the drilling equipments speed and efficiency were quite primitive as compared to the latest equipments used as on date. Also the success rate is almost 100% with the advent of lasers and better sterilization techniques being adopted. Digital imaging techniques at chairside enables 100% accuracy which was not the case even few years back. Here at Dentistree we use state of art imaging technology and treatment methods thereby rendering RCTs absolutely painless and quick.
The patient is given topical anaesthesia to minimize the pain from the injection prick of infiltration or block as per the tooth being treated. So here at Dentistree we ensure that the patient is painfree from the beginning to the treatment at its completion.
Following RCT the tooth is prepared and custom made crown is fabricated at lab end to enable it to serve longer not having to undergo tooth fracture ensuing extraction.
