The inside of the tooth, which consists of pulp, nerves, blood vessels, connective tissues, etc, gets infected due to deep decay, pulp damage, cracked or chipped teeth, etc. A root canal treatment includes taking a tooth x-ray to evaluate inflammation. Then local anaesthesia is administered to numb the tooth, and the infected pulp is removed through a small opening made in the crown of the tooth. Space is cleaned and filled with adhesive cement called gutta-percha. An artificial tooth is placed over treated teeth to restore functionality. The root canal treatment is done in about 2-3 settings and each session may last for about an hour.

Dental Implantology: Dental implants are surgical fixtures that are used as a solid foundation to support a false tooth. A false tooth is used as a replacement for missing or damaged teeth. Dental implants are small screw-like posts made of titanium. We have a team of experienced dentists specialized in dental implants surgery that includes periodontists, oral maxillofacial surgeons or oral surgeons, a general dentist, or a prosthodontist, etc. This is an outpatient procedure and is performed under anaesthesia. The damaged tooth is extracted, and the dental implant is placed inside the bone socket after bone grafting. With time, the jawbone fuses with the dental implant or the screw (Osseointegration) and secures it inside the jaw. The process may take about 6 weeks to 12 weeks long. An artificial tooth or crown is placed over the implant and secured with a small connector post called an abutment. The whole process may take a few months and is performed in multiple sessions. They have a high success rate of 98% if good oral hygiene is maintained.
