Root Canal Treatment
Root canal treatment (RCT) is a procedure performed to repair and save a tooth that has a big cavity or infected. During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp (Contents of the tooth) are removed by entering the centre to access the canals and then inside of the tooth is cleaned mechanically using rotary files. The canals are then flushed with some irrigants to clear any remnants and debris. The canals are dried with paper points and filled with an inert thermoplastic material called Gutta Percha (GP) and sealed with pluggers. If this treatment is not done, the tissue surrounding the tooth will become infected and may lead to abscess (PUS) formation and further complications.
At Dental Zone we use Trios 3D scan from 3Shape to fabricate the crown. At Dental Zone we fabricate the crown In-House using ceramill CAD CAM system. This digital workflow reduces time, number of visits and provides accuracy. The fabricated is then cemented on to the tooth. A crown is necessary for the tooth which is root canal treated to prevent fracture in future.
If required in some cases if a portion of tooth structure is broken, it is rebuilt with a post and core procedure. The tooth is then reduced in size proportionally depending on the anatomy.
