ABSTRACT:Have you ever experienced a situation where the patient came back to you in an unscheduled appointment complaining of pain or swelling in the region where you have done root canal treatment, sometimes a few hours or in some cases after some days of Root Canal Treatment and this situation resulted in an emergency treatment.
As a Dental Surgeon we all must have gone through this phase at least once in our daily clinic hours. And this situation has made a true nightmare or agony for every dentist in day-to-day life.
This article will be discussing about the etiology, the other factors affecting this condition, the remedy for the same, how to deal with these kinds of patients and do perfect time management during the busy schedule.
Root Canal treatment is a chemo-mechanical method of disinfection of root canal followed by three dimensional hermetic obturation.
The root canal treatment is done to eradicate the pulpal and peri radicular diseases causative agents and to enhance peri radicular tissue recovery.
As an Endodontist our main intension is to preserve a tooth. Once the tooth is infected with the dental caries initially will go with normal restorative procedure and if we are not able to find a solution with normal restoration the next step is Root Canal Procedures.
Now a days all the Dental Surgeons and especially the Endodontist are using modern root canal procedures and new rotary system, still the post operative endodontic flare up is a major problem faced by dental surgeons.
