A root canal (रूट केनाल) is the naturally occurring anatomic space within the root of a tooth. It consists of the pulp chamber (within the coronal part of the tooth), the main canal (s), and more intricate anatomical branches that may connect the root canals to each other or to the surface of the root. Hence, let us know about the root canal, understand it’s structure, clinical significance, root canal treatment, root canal treatment cost, pain, and free Siddha energy remedies of Swami Hardas Life System.
Root canal Meaning (रूट कैनाल का अर्थ)
A root canal is not a treatment, but part of a tooth. It is the hollow section of a tooth that contains the nerve tissue, blood vessels, and other cells, also known as the pulp. The name of the dental procedure commonly referred to as a root canal is actually endodontic therapy, which means “inside the tooth.”
Root canal Structure (रूट कैनाल की संरचना)
At the center of every tooth is a hollow area that houses soft tissues, such as the nerve, blood vessels, and connective tissue. This hollow area contains a relatively wide space in the coronal portion of the tooth called the pulp chamber. These canals run through the center of the roots, similar to the way graphite runs through a pencil. The pulp receives nutrition through the blood vessels, and sensory nerves carry signals back to the brain. A tooth can be relieved from pain if there is irreversible damage to the pulp, via root canal treatment.
Root canal anatomy consists of the pulp chamber and root canals. Both contain dental pulp. The total number of root canals per tooth depends on the number of the tooth roots ranging from one to four, five or more in some cases. Sometimes there is more than one root canal per root. Some teeth have more variable internal anatomy than others. An unusual root canal shape, complex branching, and multiple root canals are considered as the main causes of root canal treatment failures.
Root canal system (रूट कैनाल प्रणाली)
The specific features and complexity of the internal anatomy of the teeth have been thoroughly studied. Using a replica technique on thousands of teeth, Hess made clear as early as 1917 that the internal space of dental roots is often a complex system composed of a central area and lateral parts.
In fact, this lateral component may represent a relatively large volume, which challenges the cleaning phase of the instrumentation procedure in that tissue remnants of the vital or necrotic pulp as well as infectious elements are not easily removed in these areas. Thus, the image of root canals having a smooth, conical shape is generally too idealistic and underestimates the reach of root canal instrumentation.
Root canal Contents (रूट कैनाल सामग्री)
The space inside the root canals is filled with a highly vascularized, loose connective tissue, called dental pulp, which is the tissue of the dentin portion of the tooth is composed. The dental pulp helps the complete formation of the secondary teeth (adult teeth) one to two years after eruption into the mouth. However, the dental pulp also nourishes and hydrates the tooth structure. It is making the tooth more resilient, less brittle and less prone to fracture from chewing hard foods. Additionally, the dental pulp provides a hot and cold sensory function.
Root canals presenting an oval cross-section are found in 50–70% of root canals. In addition, canals with a “tear-shaped” cross section are common when a single root contains two canals, subtleties that can be more difficult to appreciate on classical radiographs.
Recent studies have shown that use of cone-down CT scans can detect accessory canals that would have been missed in 23% of cases, which can, in turn, lead to apical periodontitis. The upper molars, in particular, are predisposed to have an occult accessory canal in nearly half of patients.
Root canal Symptoms (रूट कैनाल के लक्षण)
- Severe toothache pain upon chewing or application of pressure
- Prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures
- Discoloration of the tooth
- Swelling and tenderness in nearby gums
Root canal Clinical significance (रूट कैनाल क्लिनिकल का महत्व)
A root canal is also a colloquial term for a dental operation, endodontic therapy, wherein the pulp is cleaned out, the space disinfected and then filled.
When rotary nickel-titanium (NiTi) files are used in canals with flat-oval or tear-shaped cross sections, a circular bore is created due to the rotational action of the metal. Also, small cavities within the canal such as the buccal or lingual recesses may not be instrumented within the tooth, potentially leaving residual disease during disinfection.
Tissue or biofilm remnants along such un-instrumented recesses may lead to failure due to both inadequate disinfection and the inability to properly obturate the root-canal space. Consequently, the biofilm should be removed with a disinfectant during root canal treatment.
Root canal Treatment (रूट कैनाल का उपचार)
A “root canal” is not a treatment, but part of a tooth. It is the hollow section of a tooth that contains the nerve tissue, blood vessels, and other cells, also known as the pulp. Treatment of root canal is done in three steps, and it takes between one and three sessions to complete, which includes:
Cleaning of the Root canal (रूट कैनाल की सफाई)
First, the dentist removes everything that is inside the root canal. With the patient under local anesthesia, the dentist makes a small access hole on the surface of the tooth and removes the diseased and dead pulp tissue with very small files.
Filling of the Root canal (रूट कैनाल का भरना)
Next, the dentist cleans, shapes and decontaminates the hollow area, using tiny files and irrigation solutions. Then, the tooth is filled with a rubber-like material, using an adhesive cement to seal the canals completely. After root canal therapy, the tooth is dead. The patient will no longer feel any pain in that tooth because the nerve tissue has been removed, and the infection has been eliminated.
Adding a crown or filling (एक मुकुट जोड़ना या भरना)
However, the tooth will be now more fragile than it was before. A tooth with no pulp must receive its nourishment from the ligament that attaches the tooth to the bone. This supply is adequate, but in time, the tooth will become more brittle, so a crown or filling offers protection.
Until the crown or filling is complete, the patient should not chew or bite on the tooth. Once there is a crown or filling is done, the person can use the tooth as before. Treatment often takes only one appointment, but if there are curved canals, multi-canals, or large infections, this could take one or two additional appointments.
Root canal Cost (रूट कैनाल की लागत)
The cost of a root canal varies depending on where you are in the country — and which tooth needs it.
Molars are significantly more expensive than bicuspids and front teeth. That’s not an access issue — it’s because front teeth have one canal, while your back teeth can have as many as three. If all of them need work done, you’re actually getting a bulk discount on the molars.
So what are you going to pay for a root canal? The short answer is somewhere around the neighborhood of $1,000, depending on which tooth needs it, among other factors. Here are the average prices of a root canal by tooth:
- Front teeth: The cost will range anywhere from $300 to $1,500, but a more typical range will be $900 to $1,100.
- Bicuspids: The cost of a bicuspid root canal is a little steeper, ranging from $400 to $1,800 with a typical cost of $900 to $1,100.
- Molars: Here’s where things start getting really expensive. For a molar root canal, you’re looking at spending between $500 to $2,000, with typical costs between $1,000 to $1,300.
What does that include? An X-ray and the procedure itself. You’re probably going to be looking at extra costs, though, including follow-up visits (about $50 to $100 each) and a dental crown (anywhere from $300 to $3,000, depending on which tooth you had done and how nice you want the crown to be). If you’re lucky, you might get away with just needing a filling, which is going to run you between $50 and $300.
Root canal Pain (रूट कैनाल का दर्द)
Most people associate having a root canal with a lot of pain and discomfort. A root canal will treat the diseased tissue (pulp) while preserving the rest of the tooth. A person will be given anesthetic before the procedure, so it is usually no more painful than a typical dental filling.

If a person is trained in Swami Hardas Life System, he/she knows everything about what is called UAM and should apply regularly over the affected root canal, which would help solve the problem as well as avoid complications also. However, those, who are not trained should apply the remedies which include:
