diagnosis of immediate root canal treatment
Root canal treatment is an often straightforward procedure to relieve dental pain and save your teeth. Patients typically need a root canal when there is inflammation or infection in the roots of a tooth.
Root canal treatment is done in 3 stages
Involves removal of the dead nerve and the gross infection. An antibiotic medicament is left in the canal to help reduce the bacteria. The symptoms usually subside after this. However, it is important to continue with the treatment lest the infection recur.
This involves further cleaning and shaping of the canals. Certain medicaments are used to flush out the debris and create a sterile environment to receive the inert filling.
This is the last stage in the completion of treatment which involves filling the canals with an inert filling material. A permanent filling is done to restore the tooth and then it is ready to receive a crown.

When is a root canal needed?
Root canal therapy is necessary when oral bacteria invade the pulp inside of your tooth. This usually happens when a cavity is left untreated for a long time. It can also occur if your tooth becomes cracked or damaged due to trauma.
