ROOT CANAL TREATMENT
YOU REQUIRE A ROOT CANAL TREATMENT (RCT) IF YOU HAVE:
Sensitivity/pain in a tooth on having something cold especially drinking something chilled/cold.
Pain in the tooth while applying pressure to eat/chew something (the patient avoids eating on the side where the infected tooth is).
A pimple near the gum of the infected tooth which comes and goes (may or may not have pus); this tooth may or may not have pain.
SINGLE VISIT ENDODONTICS (SVE)
Single visit Endodontics is gaining much interest these days. It is faster, well accepted & prevents recontamination of the root canal treatment between appointments. Single Visit Endodontics (SVE) refers to cleaning, shaping & disinfection of RC system followed by obscuration, all carried out during the same visit. Single Visit Endodontics is very common these days; in today's era where everyone is running after time, people find it a good bargain, it goes well with their fast-paced life style.
