Root Canal Treatment in India
Root canal is a treatment to repair and save a badly damaged or infected tooth instead of removing it. The term “root canal” comes from the cleaning of the canals inside a tooth’s root. Decades ago, root canal treatments often were painful.Root canal treatment is often feared by patient as painful and traumatic. To be frank, this treatment is done to actually remove your pain and infection. And everything is done under anaesthesia, that is it becomes quiet painless until and unless you have high level of infection, because of which the tooth/teeth doesn’t get anaesthetized easily.
Things you must know before you get a Root Canal Treatment done:-
- Don’t underestimate a small decay, because the decay might look small from outside but as you remove the decays deeper, you will notice a much bigger surface which is either affected or effected.
- Affected dental layer is easy to save through dental fillings, but effected dental layer means your infection has reached to the level where only filling doesn’t work, and you tend to get pain at this stage of infection.
- Once you start getting higher sensitivity or pain while chewing, drinking or sleeping, which can be of shorter duration or longer duration, recurring, DO NOT DELAY YOUR VISIT TO THE DENTIST, since you require treatment at the earliest to save your tooth and retain its function.
- Root canal treatment is done under anesthesia. So it is most likely painless, but sometimes you may feel pain if you have pus/abscess with respect to the highly infected tooth which is being treated. Once your treatment starts, your pain subsides to more than 50% of what you were suffering with prior.
- Root canal treatment is a tooth-saving procedure, which not only saves your tooth but keep it disease-free and functional for a really long run.
Advanced Endodontic Care
One of the ways our Dubai Endodontists provide the most efficient and comfortable root canal treatment is thanks to our state-of-the-art dental microscope. Dental microscopes allow enhanced, accurate imaging of the internal surfaces of your tooth roots. As such, your root canal treatment is more effective and successful, compared to endodontic therapies performed without a microscope.
Incorporating of a root canal microscope allows us to ensure no lingering infection, attention to any secondary canals, and thorough cleaning of the tooth before the root canal filling is placed. None of these surfaces are visible to the naked eye, so a dental microscope takes your care to the next level for a predictable procedure.

Root Canal Treatment Procedure
During endodontic therapy, we gently numb your tooth to prevent any sensations or stimuli during the appointment. From there, the nerve chambers are accessed and the tissues inside of them are removed. We use our dental microscope to thoroughly oversee the cleaning inside of each canal. Next, the tooth is filled to seal out any new bacteria. The overall process typically requires one appointment, followed by a dental crown.

Since patients are given anesthesia, a root canal isn’t more painful than a regular dental procedure, such as a filling or getting a wisdom tooth removed. However, a root canal is generally a bit sore or numb after the procedure, and can even cause mild discomfort for a few days.
Typically, root canal recovery time lasts less than a week. Mild discomfort may be present for a few days, but this can be managed with medication. If you have severe pain or discomfort that lasts longer than a week, call your healthcare provider.
Root canal treatment is highly successful; the procedure has more than a 95% success rate. Many teeth fixed with a root canal can last a lifetime.
A successful root canal can cause mild pain for a few days. This is temporary, and should go away on its own as long as you practice good oral hygiene. You should see your dentist for a follow-up if the pain lasts longer than three days.
