When is a Root Canal Necessary?

Here are some signs indicating that you need a Root canal:

1. Severe Pain

Pain in the mouth may be uncomfortable, but it can subside with time. Even so, persistent pain isn’t something you should dismiss, so remember to visit your Dentist. They can diagnose Dental conditions and check for signs of tooth decay. You can even look for certain factors that indicate pain. These can help you gauge the severity. This pain may be a type of root canal pain. For instance, if you develop spontaneous pain that feels like a wave, it is a sign of a dead or infected tooth. In this condition, you need to visit an Endodontist or get a root canal.

2. Bumps on the Gums

Bumps on your gums also indicate that your tooth is suffering from a bacterial infection. When bacteria reach your tooth pulp, it causes inflammation. So, when you notice pimple-like bumps on your gums, visit your Endodontist for a diagnosis

3. Hot and Cold Sensitivity

Sensitivity is a common condition, and hot or cold stimuli can trigger it. It happens due to exposure of dentin, the middle layer of your tooth. You DO NOT NEED to undergo a root canal every time you experience sensitivity. However, when the effects of sensitivity prolong, it’s a sign of an infection. Upon noticing this symptom, consult with an Endodontist for further inspection.

4. Swollen Gums

Swelling of the gums is another sign of tooth infection. Sometimes, the gums swell after brushing and flossing too hard. This is a normal condition and does not indicate a bacterial infection. However, when you experience tenderness in the swollen gums and triggering pain to the touch, this can indicate a bacterial infection. 

5. Darkening of the Gums

The gums darkening is a sign of decay. If your tooth is about to die of tooth decay, the infection may be spreading to your gums as well. This is an obvious sign that you need a Root canal.

6. Tender Gums

Gum tenderness is another sign of tooth decay. This indicates that the infection is spreading to your gums. Also, you will feel pain when you touch the gum. Visit an Endodontist for proper treatment and Root canal.

7. An Abscess

An Endodontist can see the Abscess through X-ray imaging. It will appear as a dark spot. An endodontist will perform a root canal and clear the abscess, effectively avoiding further damage.

Laser assisted Root Canal Treatment over traditional Root Canal Treatment

Laser assisted root canal treatment is a gift to mankind. So the next time the doctor suggests a root canal treatment, don’t gasp for breath, as a root canal does not cause pain, it relieves pain!  Save your tooth and that beautiful smile with a laser root canal procedure.

The use of LASERs has been a successful practice in the medical field for decades. When it comes to Dentistry, there has been a strong development of lasers in this field too. That’s because lasers can be efficiently used to treat two of the most prevalent oral ailments: tooth decay and gum disease. 

The popularity of using Lasers in Dentistry is also linked to its safe and effective results in all Dental treatments.

Among the few endodontic procedures that Laser Dentistry is used for, Root Canal Therapy (RCT) is one of the most common endodontic procedures. While drills and other dental tools have certainly been used for centuries to remove the infected pulp from a decayed tooth, the additional use of laser in the treatment has made quite the changes in the Root Canal Treatment. 

Root canal procedure is one treatment that is feared by many. With the advent of lasers in endodontics, root canal therapy is no longer a scary Dental procedure. Laser-Assisted Root Canal therapy has shown to be more beneficial compared to conventional root canal treatment in terms of pain and disinfection. Dental lasers offer a high degree of accuracy and safety compared to conventional methods. 

What is the difference between conventional root canal therapy (RCT) and Laser assisted root canal therapy (RCT)?

With conventional Root Canal Treatment, there are challenges with guaranteeing that the entire affected area has been disinfected fully. Hence, reinfection is very much possible. However, when conducting laser-assisted root canal therapy, reinfection rates are drastically reduced.

Lesser pain with Laser assisted Root Canal Treatment

Traditional root canal treatment follows cleaning and disinfection of root canals by mechanical debridement and using chemical agents like chlorhexidine, sodium hypochlorite etc. However, this chemical-mechanical approach may not always achieve complete sterilization. And in most cases may lead to reinfection and rarely, failure of root canal therapy.

When lasers are used in addition to these chemo-mechanical methods to ensure complete disinfection of the root canals, they seize infection and effectuate a sterile atmosphere in the infected root canals.

Laser-assisted root canal treatment has a high level of precision and allows Dentists to target specific areas that are being worked on without harming the surrounding gum tissue. Additionally, most procedures performed with lasers do not require anesthesia. If pain is something that makes you nervous about undergoing root canal therapy, talk to your Dentist about laser-assisted Root Canal therapy.

However, please remember, Laser-assisted Root Canal Treatment does not eliminate pain completely, the pain is simply much lesser compared to conventional methods.

Favorable results with laser-assisted Root Canal Treatment

The efficacy of laser-activated irrigation of root canals when compared with conventional irrigation to disinfect shows favourable results for the laser technology. Laser-activated irrigation for destroying bacteria and blocking new bacterial growth is more effective than conventional irrigation.

Advantages of Laser assisted root canal treatment over traditional root canal treatment

Lasers have the ability to target even the smallest of the smallest cavities (deeper pockets) and target bacteria and the infected area with greater accuracy, preserving healthier tooth structure and ensuring it is completely disinfected. Bottom line, laser-assisted RCT helps in the reduction of at least 99% bacteria as the root canal approaches sterilization. Since the laser has the ability to reach and clean the accessory canal, the root canal sealer can reach right at the bottom of the root canal which results in a better seal of the root canal. 

  1. Laser treatment is precise and more accurate than traditional root canal therapy.
  2. Lasers can target bacteria and the infected area with greater accuracy preserving healthier tooth structure.
  3. It helps in the reduction of at least 99.7% bacterial counts in the root canal approaches sterilization.
  4. The tooth will be stronger and have adequate protection against further decay and damage.
  5. Helps in reducing the risk of infection.
  6. This minimally invasive technique conserves the original tooth structure, i.e. it saves the natural tooth and allows keeping it functional for decades. It also helps in keeping the removal of dentinal tissue to the minimal.
  7. Since laser has the ability to reach and clean the accessory canal, the root canal sealer can reach right at the bottom of the root canal which results in a better seal of root canal which further prevents future re-infection of the tooth.
  8. It reduces discomfort for patients by eliminating the disturbing sounds of drills as well as limiting the need for local anesthesia.
  9. As laser treatment is less aggressive than traditional procedures, there is less bleeding and inflammation, as well as it reduces post-operative discomfort and infection.
  10. It also hlep in performing a single sitting Root canal  in qualifying patients
