Root Canal Q&A

What is Root Canal Treatment?


Root Canal Therapy is a procedure that involves the removal of infected pulp of the decayed tooth. It is a simple invasive procedure performed under local anesthesia. Once the local anesthesia is given, the infected pulp and nerve of the tooth are removed. Then the canal is thoroughly cleaned and sealed. The main aim of the procedure is to give you relief from dental pain and stop the spreading of infection to adjacent gums and bones. White Hill Dental experts use the latest advances in technology and procedures to ensure exceptional results.

Is RCT the right treatment for me?


To determine if you need to undergo endodontic treatment, your White Hill Dental provider evaluates your teeth and the results of your dental X-rays. Our team also reviews your oral health history and discusses symptoms you may have before personalizing your treatment. 


What happens during Root Canal Treatment?


During treatment, first, the damaged tooth is identified. Next, local anesthesia is injected to numb the infected tooth area. To keep the affected area and avoid contamination by saliva, a rubber dam is placed around the tooth. 


A cavity is drilled down the infected tooth and debris like pulp and nerve are removed. The cavity is then scrapped, cleaned and the debris is flushed away. This step is performed with utmost care to avoid any cross-contamination


Depending on the possibility of the tooth recovery, the tooth is sealed on the same day or after a few days. A temporary filling is used if the sealing is to be performed on the next visit.


The final step involves the placement of a crown to restore its natural function. Crown material selection is based on the patient's functional and esthetic requirements.



Take good care of your teeth during treatment by avoiding chewing on harsh or sticky objects for a few days. Don't skip brushing or flossing during and after the root canal treatment.
