Root canals also help avoid the need for a tooth to be extracted or a dental crown to be made.

Stages of Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment is when the diseased pulp inside the tooth is removed. The remaining canal system is cleaned and filled with a material called gutta-percha to prevent infection.

Root canal treatment procedure

The first stage of this procedure typically involves anaesthetic injections. It is given before the tooth is drilled not to cause pain.

Next, the root canals are cleaned one by one. Sometimes with an instrument called a root canal file or an ultrasonic device.  After cleaning, they are filled with gutta-percha filler to create a protective seal against bacteria.
Filling material may also fill in any gaps left by teeth. Those have been removed due to decay or injury.

How Long Does a Root Canal Take?

The most common form of this procedure is called endodontics.
And it can be done in one or two visits, depending on how much damage is present.
Root canals are used to remove decay from inside the tooth.
It helps prevent further infection from spreading to other parts of the body through the bloodstream.
The length of time required for a root canal depends on several factors, including
The severity of infection location. And the number of teeth being treated.
So there are three main factors to consider when choosing the treatment option for a tooth abscess.
