Hello Doctor: Dr Rajesh Pillai on root canal treatment | 16th February 2015 | Full Episode

In this episode of Hello Doctor, watch Dr Rajesh Pillai, Vice-Principal and Professor, PMS College of Dental Science and Research, talk about root canal treatment, what it is, how it is performed & also how and when it becomes necessary.

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 cleaning of the canals inside a tooth’s root. Decades ago, root canal treatments often were painful. With dental advances and local anesthetics, most people have little, if any at all, pain with a root canal treatment. It is probably more painful living with a decayed tooth. Root canal alternatives include extracting the damaged tooth and replacing it with a dental implant, bridge or removable partial denture. Root canal therapy is otherwise known as endodontics.

Dr Rajesh Pillai also recommends a dental checkup every six months. Watch this video to learn more.
