Single Visit Root Canal Treatment

Root Canal Treatment is performed when carious infection reaches the pulp (blood vessels and nerve supply to the tooth). Unlike the old techniques, RCT being performed with multiple sittings, Sai Dental provides the advanced technique where the procedure is completed in a single sitting that takes about 20 minutes to 45 minutes depending on the teeth (front or back teeth).

This procedure is done under local anaesthesia. Dentists excavate the carious part of the teeth and prepare the access, i.e. the pulp chamber of the tooth is reached. The infected pulp tissues containing blood vessels and nerves are removed. Root canal is cleaned properly with medicated solutions like saline, chlorhexidine, sodium hypochlorite, Ethylene diamine tetra acetic acid (EDTA) and shaped with rotary instruments.The pulp canal is then irrigated and dried completely. The root canal filling material called Gutta-percha is coated with a medicament and canal is sealed completely till the root. A permanent tooth coloured filling is done over the sealed roots and followed by capping the tooth.
