A 'root canal' is the term that refers to the natural cavity or space within the center of the tooth. It is made up of the pulp chamber which provides nutrients and nerves to each tooth and the 'canals' that connect to each other or to the surface of the root of the tooth.

Teeth can become damaged and infected due to severe decay, repeated dental procedures, cracks in the tooth or trauma to the face. Constant pain, swelling and tenderness of the gums, prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold and discoloration of the tooth are signs that one may need a root canal. A visit to the dentist will best determine the ways to deal with each particular case.

  • A. More precise Treatment
  • We’re leaving no spot unexamined. Global dental microscope provides enhanced visualization and access to even the most difficult angles of the teeth, mouth and jaws, and allows for a better, earlier and more accurate diagnosis and treatment of many dental conditions. With its unmatched precision, the need for of x-rays is reduced without compromising a procedure. That alone significantly improves quality of treatment and no one has to stay long hours for a treatment.

B. Armed to the teeth
Global dental microscopes are trusted by more dentists worldwide than any other brand of microscope. We use Global dental microscopes at Dr. Anil Yadav Dental Clinic to bring a far greater level of success to every root canal procedure we perform. This state-of-the-art technology also plays a pivotal role in helping us better educate our patients about their condition and treatment.

That’s right. At Dr. Anil Yadav's Neo Dental Clinic, we make sure you get superior root canal (endodontic) therapy using unparalleled technologies. Come and visit us today.
C. The Truth About Root Canal and Cancer
  • Debunking the Myth
  • While there are plenty of undisputable resources about the effectiveness of root canal (endodontic) treatment, misinformation continues to circulate online. Neo Dental Clinic, along with our Indian Board-Certified Endodontist Dr. Khushboo Sharma, continuously work on educating the public about root canal safety while debunking the myths that root canals cause cancer or other health problems.

    To date, there has not been one valid, scientific evidence linking root canal-treated teeth and disease elsewhere in the body. The Indian Association of Endodontists (IAE) states that there is no causality between root canals and cancer; just because a person has experienced both doesn’t mean a cause-and-effect relationship exists.

    In fact, a 2013 study published in a journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA Otolaryngology—Head & Neck Surgery) found that a patient’s risk of cancer doesn’t change after having a root canal treatment. Additionally, researchers found that patients with multiple endodontic treatments had a 45% reduced risk of cancer.

    D. Myth & Truth About Root Canal
    1) Myth – Root canal treatment is painful. Truth – Root canal treatment doesn’t cause pain, it relieves it.

    2) Myth – Root canal treatment causes illness. Truth – There is no valid, scientific evidence linking root canal-treated teeth and disease elsewhere in the body.

    3) Myth – A good alternative to root canal treatment is extraction. Truth – Saving your natural teeth, if possible, is the very best option.

    4) Myth – Root canal therapies are often lengthy, requiring many visits. Truth – Root canal therapies can be completed in one or two appointments.

    5) Myth – You do not need a root canal if you’re not feeling any pain. Truth – Teeth that require root canal therapy are not always painful.

    Fibre Post & Core

    A dental post is added to an existing tooth that is still in place but needs to be reinforced. Dentists use a dental post to help stabilize and secure a tooth that has undergone root canal treatment.

    The decision to use a post when restoring an endodontically treated tooth should be based on remaining tooth structure after the removal of all caries and remaining restorative materials. If the coronal structures of a tooth are primarily intact, the primary preparation is the access opening for endodontic treatment, and the tooth has favourable occlusion (egg, an anterior tooth that has been traumatized but not fractured becomes nonvital), a routine restoration without a post would be indicated. When significant portions of the crown are missing due to caries and/or fracture or the presence of an existing restoration that restores multiple tooth surfaces, there may be the need to use a post to provide the coronal restoration with accessory retention.


    A root end surgery, also known as apicoectomy, retrograde root canal treatment (c.f. orthograde root canal treatment) or root-end filling, is an endodontic surgical procedure whereby a tooth's root tip is removed and a root end cavity is prepared and filled with a biocompatible material. It is an example of a peri radicular surgery.

    An apicoectomy is necessary when conventional root canal therapy has failed and a re-treatment was already unsuccessful or is not advised.[1] Removal of the root tip is indicated to remove the entire apical delta ensuring no uncleaned missed anatomy. The only alternative may be extraction followed by prosthetic replacement with a denture, dental bridge or dental implant.

    State-of-the-art procedures make use of microsurgical endodontic techniques, such as a dental operating microscope, micro instruments, ultrasonic preparation tips and calcium-silicate based filling materials.

    In an apicoectomy, only the tip of the root is removed. This is in contrast to root resection, where an entire root is removed, and hemi section, where a root together with its overlying portion of the crown are separated the rest of the tooth and optionally removed.


    Apexogenesis & Apexification

    The degree of tooth development is a major consideration when dealing with young patients who exhibit infected or damaged pulp. Only two-thirds of the roots are developed when a tooth erupts. If there is any kind of damage to the pulp before full development, further root growth and formation of the dentin stops. As a result, these under-developed roots will have a reverse or flaring taper and open apex. If this is left untreated the future root canal treatment will have a minimal success due to difficulties in sealing the apex of the root. Besides, thin dentin walls will raise the likelihood of tooth fracture. Apexogenesis and apexification are two procedures that are commonly used under these STANCES.

    Apexogenesis is a dental procedure that is carried out in the case of reversible pulpitis, that is, when dental pulp is still vital or minimally inflamed. In simple words, it stimulates the process of physiological root end development. It is likely to be successful in children or young patients only as there is better blood supply to their teeth than that of adults. The aim is to keep the pulp alive and to encourage further root growth as well as apical closure. This is likely to improve the chances of saving the original tooth in the long run.

    As saving the vital pulp is an essential goal of this procedure only the inflamed part of the pulp is extricated, leaving at least one-third of the dental pulp in place. Medication is applied which permits further growth and strengthening of the roots. Among the various methods used are indirect pulp treatment, direct capping and partial removal of pulp before sealing.
    Apexification is done when there is irreversible pulpitis and the pulp is necrotic. This procedure is carried out to induce a barrier by encouraging the development of mineralized tissue at the open apex. This tissue may be osteodentin, osteocementum, bone or even a combination of all three. It can also be described as root-end closure.

    Apexification is carried out by removing the necrotic pulp and covering it with medication that promotes growth of tissue that serves to close the apex. As the roots fail to develop further, the chances of fracture and tooth loss are increased. Therefore, a restoration becomes necessary following apexification.

    In both, apexogenesis and apexification, regular monitoring after every 3 months in the beginning is essential to check for success of the procedure. After the root is fully developed a conventional root canal treatment is required in order to seal the apex, main and lateral root canals.
