  1. 1. Root Canal Treatment Advanced Rotary Single Sitting RCT* Department of Endodontics The Dental Specialists Hyderabad, India Step by Step Protocol followed at
  3. 3. WHAT IS ROOT CANAL TREATMENT? ENDODONTIC THERAPY/ PULP THERAPY BASICS Every tooth has 3 layers: Enamel (White), Dentin (Yellow) and Pulp (Pink) E D P
  4. 4. Continuous Food deposits and sticky products (junk foods) can cause a cavity and spread from enamel towards Pulp.
  5. 5. Once the decay spreads towards the pulp infection travels towards the tip of the root.
  6. 6. Increase in the infection/ pus at the root may spread to the bone level later leading to swelling and severe pain if neglected
  7. 7. If the tooth is neglected at this stage the infection over a period may fracture the tooth
  8. 8. Be clear about the option you choose
  9. 9. TREATMENT OPTIONS AT THIS STAGE Option1: Root Canal Treatment Option2 : Extraction Advantage of Root Canal Treatment • Less expensive compared to replacement with either Bridge or by Implant • No need to grind adjacent teeth for bridge • Prolonged life and maintains originality of natural tooth • Single sitting Root Canal Treatment with the latest advancements in Science and Technology ( Rotary Endodontic System)
  10. 10. Step 1: Rubber dam placement A rubber dam is really a thin sheet of latex (usually about 6 x 6 inches). It acts as a barrier that helps to keep the tooth isolated (clean, dry, contaminate-free) during the procedure.
  11. 11. Step 2 - Creating the access cavity. One of the fundamental goals of root canal therapy is removing contaminates from within the tooth and to remove these contaminants a hole is drilled on the upper surface of the infected tooth. The depth of this hole is extended to a level where pulp is exposed. Once the pulp is exposed, the infected pulp is removed.
  12. 12. Step 3 - Measuring the length of the tooth We at THE DENTAL SPECIALISTS use two methods to take measurements. a) By taking an x-ray b) Electronic measurements Several individual measurements may be needed for a tooth
  13. 13. Step 4 - Cleaning and shaping the tooth's root canals Traditionally, root canal files have been used as hand instruments (manipulated by the dentist's fingers). We at THE DENTAL SPECIALISTS, however, have a specialized dental drill (handpiece) that holds the files and produces the needed filing motion for them.
  14. 14. Tooth irrigation is an important part of the cleaning and shaping process Periodic irrigation (flush out) carries off and washes away debris and contaminants.
  15. 15. The canals are now ready for a permanent filling
  16. 16. Step 5 - Sealing the canals The most frequently used root canal filling material is a rubber compound called gutta percha. It comes in preformed cones whose sizes exactly match the dimensions (diameter, taper) of root canal files.
