Root Canal Treatment
Root Canal Treatment helps to save your tooth and avoid extracting it. A Root Canal Treatment (RCT) is recommended for a vastly damaged tooth or a serious tooth infection (abscess).
What can cause a tooth infection?
A deep cavity, a cracked/fractured tooth ot injury to the tooth can cause infection of the pulp (soft tissue inside a tooth). When the pulp is infected you will feel pain, swelling or abscess can form around the end of the root of the tooth or in the bone around the tooth.This infection can lead to tooth loss, as the bone around your tooth might be damaged. Root Canal Treatment helps to avoid such compications.
Root Canal Treatment Procedure
Before RCT localized dental X-Ray or Panoramic dental X-Ray will be done to have a clear view of your tooth and the bone around it.
A dentist will use local anesthesia to numb an area around and inside the tooth so that you will feel a little to no pain during the procedure.
To protect your tooth from viruses, bacteria, and fungus and to keep your tooth dry a dentist will put a “rubber dam”(a thin sheet of latex rubber) over it.
Then a dentist will create an access hole in the top of the tooth to remove the infected tooth nerve and pulp tissue from inside the tooth.
Your dentist will studiously clean each root canal and inside the tooth and may cure the tooth with microbe-killing medicine.
Then fill in the root canals with a rubber compound to seal them against future infection and will place a temporary filling over the access hole to protect you from root canal pain.
A dentist may prescribe antibiotics to avoid the infection to spread.
What to expect after Root Canal Treatment
The area around your tooth and tooth my stay sensitive for a few days. Your dentist will explain how to relieve sensitivity and discomfort you may have.
How long tooth will last after a RCT
During your follow-up visit, your dentist will replace temporary filling with a permanent filling or a customized crown.
With good oral hygiene, your tooth can last a lifespan. Brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes, floss between your teeth once a day and see your dentist for regular check-ups.

Diastema or A Gap Between Teeth
Diastema or a gap between teeth is often the result of a difference between the size of the jaws and the size of the teeth. When teeth are too big for the jaw they usually become overcrowded. In the case of diastema, it is the opposite-the jaw is too big and small teeth can have gaps between them. Missing teeth or undersized teeth may cause diastemas too. Bad oral habits, such as excessive thumb-sucking can lead to diastema as well. A large labial frenum (the tissue that connects your lips and gum) can cause midline diastema. Diastema Closure...read more
Tooth pain and sensitivity after a filling
Now and again, some patients experience tooth pain and sensitivity after the placement of a composite(white) filling. There can be a few reasons for the sensitivity.

On the other hand, white fillings may cause sensitivity when the cavity was deep to the pulp, or if it’s placed on an area of the tooth that experiences greater flex.
