Root Canal Therapy
- What is a root canal treatment?
A root canal is the best way to save your natural tooth that may otherwise be removed. Root canal therapy can relieve you of that jolting pain and infection which may be due to deep decay, a crack or trauma to the tooth.
- Is the treatment painful?
Most patients report that the procedure is similar to having a filling. With advanced anaesthetic protocols, our dentists take utmost care to make sure the procedure is painless and comfortable. We also offer sedation to relieve you of anxiety.
- How long can the tooth last after root canal treatment?
Root canal therapy, if done with accuracy and precision, can last you a lifetime. Dr. Farhath Sayed, our specialist in Root canal therapy and Microscopic Dentistry, carries out all the procedures under a dental operating microscope which helps magnify her vision to up to 16 times. Lasers are also used to disinfect the tooth completely thus promising the longevity of your tooth.
- Do we have to take antibiotics after a root canal treatment?
Antibiotics are avoided in most cases unless there is a apparent swelling associated with fever and malaise. In almost all cases, the root canal procedure itself helps get rid of the infection avoiding the need for systemic antibiotics.

- What is the advantage of a dental microscope for a root canal treatment?
Many root canals fail after few years and the most common reason for a failure is decay or debris that may be left behind which eventually gets infected and bounces back as pain, swelling or sometimes loss of tooth.
A dental microscope helps magnify the site of operation to almost 16 times its actual size. It is an irreplaceable tool for your endodontist to eliminate decay, locate all canals and clean the tooth thoroughly. Once the tooth is cleaned out, the tooth must receive a well packed filling to make sure no infection can further prevail. This precision requires unparalleled visibility with magnification which can be achieved only with the help of a dental microscope.

“ I have always been scared of visiting dentists especially with my previous experiences but Dr. Husain and Dr. Farhath have completely changed my views. As the name of the clinic goes 'The Dental Bond' it is really a bond that you develop with these 2 amazing doctors. I not only have the pleasure of calling them great friends, but also my dentists!
I got my tooth clean up, 2 root canals and 2 fillings done by Dr. Farhath last time I was in India. She did a great job with utmost care and precision, I had no pain or difficulty post the treatment. The clinic has state of the art facilities and the professionalism and quality of service is impeccable. Even though I live outside India I would only go to them for all things dental and I cant recommend them enough”
