What is Root Canal Treatment?

Root Canal is a procedure used to treat infected teeth which eliminate infectious bacteria from the root of the teeth to prevent them from reinfecting other healthy teeth. A general dentist or endodontist usually performs this procedure under general anaesthesia or local anaesthesia also.

Root Canal Techniques

There are different techniques for a root canal, but all of them aim to treat the infected tooth by removing the infection or inflamed substances from inside the teeth. The variations generally depend on the dentist and their tools for root canals. So, here are the techniques used to treat root canals:

Nonsurgical Root Canal Treatment

In this method, small holes are made in the teeth to clean the infected pulp, and fillers are used to seal the inner chambers. This method is helpful if the teeth have experienced extreme decay.


It is done if the nonsurgical root canal fails. This procedure, also called the microsurgical procedure, uses general anaesthesia where the tip of the root is removed, and filling is used to seal the canal.

Waterlase System From Biolase

Biolase Waterlase involves lasers ( a specific wavelength of light), water, and air to remove bacteria from root canals. This system helps patients avoid the need for retreatment because of its non-invasive method, due to which the teeth remain healthy for a more extended time.

Root Canal Retreatment

As the name suggests, in this procedure, previously implanted root canal filling material is removed in this procedure. The endodontist will carefully clean out the infection in the tooth, and finally, the tooth will be restored and sealed.
