Advanced Root Canal Treatment
When your teeth are grossly decayed beyond their normal filling stage, your dentist may suggest Root Canal Treatment or Endodontic Treatment. This involves the cleaning, shaping, and filling up of the root canal system of a particular tooth by removing the biological contents (pulp) that have gotten infected due to physical or physiological damage to the tooth. Root Canal Treatments give more longevity and strength to the tooth to retain its function and eliminate the requirement for removing the tooth.
Root canal treatments are also suggested for those teeth that support a bridge in order to replace a missing tooth. The success of this treatment purely depends on the proper diagnosis of the number of root canals and the length, dimension, and internal architecture of each canal, which is done using CBCT findings and magnification instruments such as microscopes and loops.
Kamala Dental Speciality Hospital has set up advanced endodontic treatment areas to provide our patients with all the international standards of endodontic care from specialists.
Single Visit Root Canal Treatment
Root canal therapy is no longer a blind procedure. A three-dimensional evaluation using CBCT visualizes and evaluates the number of canals, their position, shape, and length, as well as their connections with one another and the complex anatomy (Cone Beam Computed Tomography).
The information gathered in advance enables the clinician to open the cavity, decontaminate and shape the canals, and then fill them with a medicated filling material in a single shot. This is without a doubt the most significant benefit of single-visit root canal treatments.
The reduced number of injections and visits to the dental clinic, as well as predictability and convenience, are the primary reasons for increased patient acceptance of Root canal Treatments in a single visit.

Laser Assisted Root Canal Treatment
Lasers can now be used to open the surface of the tooth to access the root canal, remove diseased tissue, clean, disinfect, and shape the canal, and finally fill it, according to recent advances in dentistry. Laser aids in root canal disinfection were found to be more effective than in root canal preparation. They alleviate pain by eliminating the jarring sounds of drills and limit the need for local anaesthesia. It also lessens postoperative pain.
At Kamala Dental Specialty Hospital, we offer single-visit root canal treatment as well as laser-assisted canal decontamination, with higher success rates. We use Laser-Biolase USA, the world’s best soft and hard tissue laser.
The information gathered from the diagnostic devices need to be visualized with a higher magnification and that is the primary role of Microscopic Endodontics. At Kamala Dental Specialty Hospital, we have the best microscope from Labomed available for Microscopic Endodontics.
Endodontic / Root Canal Re-Treatments
A tooth may have to undergo a root canal re-treatment in the following cases:
- Complex canal structures that go undetected
- Filling material is leaking from a cracked crown
- Delay in placing partial/full coverage crowns after the procedure
- New decay beneath an already treated tooth
- New fractures in the treated tooth and its roots
A local anaesthetic will be administered on the first day of the re-treatment procedure. A rubber dam is used to isolate the affected tooth. During treatment, the dam shields the tooth from bacteria and saliva.
Gaining access to the inner root canal system is the first step in a root canal re-treatment. If a crown and post were used, they would be removed.
Following that, any filling material and obstructions in the root canals will be removed. The entire canal system will be thoroughly cleaned under magnification and radiographs will confirm this.
If the infection persists and the pH must be maintained, the canal will be filled with medication and an interim filling will be placed for a short period of time.
After the root canals have been thoroughly cleaned, they are filled with a rubbery and inert filling material. This rubbery material along with a sealant that seals the entire root canal system to prevent bacterial invasion. Finally, a partial/full coverage crown will be applied.
