Endondontics (Root Canal Treatment)

Root canal treatment / specialist in Coimbatore

Endodontists otherwise known as root canal specialists are specialized who spend significant time in keeping up teeth through endodontic treatment - approach, involving the soft inner tissue of the teeth, called the pulp. At the time a root canal treatment, the inflamed or infected pulp is removed and the inside of the tooth carefully cleaned and sterilized and after that filled and fixed with an elastic-like material called Gutta Percha. The Root canal specialists in Coimbatore are uniquely and specially trained in methodology for refixing teeth that have been tapped out of their sockets. Most root canal treatments in the city of Coimbatore are successful. But in some rare cases, a second root canal treatment is required. This is called retreatment. While backtracking a tooth, the root canal filling material is taken out, and the canal is recleaned, reshaped and refilled.

We in Rajkumar's Dentistry use:

We use procedures for root canal treatment listed below:

  • Microscopes/loops: enable us to prepare a successful access cavity and find all the canals. The microscope/loops brings us closer to reality through a combination of illumination and magnification which in turn improves the treatment planning.
  • Digital Imaging: Helps us read images more clearly and in more detail.
  • Apex Locator: Precisely identify the psychologic terminals.
  • Nickel Titanium (NiTi):): Endodontic rotary instruments have made mechanical shaping more predictable, safer, more efficient and easier than ever before.

Cleaning the canal with a laser, endo activation and multisonic ultra cleaning gives us and you a new level of competency, consistency and confidence.

Prevention of Root Canal

Root canal therapy used to extend the days else even remove the need for dental extractions of carious teeth in patients on bisphosphonates who may grow osteonecrosis of the jaws. Patients receiving bisphosphonates should be offered the full range of preventive care to reduce their risk to both dental caries and periodontal disease so that the need for both endodontic therapy and dental extractions will be reduced. Implementing such a strategy would require both practitioner and patient education through the combined efforts of medical and dental societies. Such an approach is justified, as the risk of compromising the oral health of patients on bisphosphonates undertaking endodontic treatment is negligible compared with the benefit from avoiding dental extractions.

We examine root canal techniques and procedures in greater depth, for diagnosis and treatment of more complex cases. This is why you may have been referred to the root canal specialists in Coimbatore.
