Endodontic Treatment (Root Canal)
Root canal treatment (also described as root canal therapy or endodontic therapy) is essential when a cavity is allowed, through neglect, to reach all the way to the root pulp. (Regular cleanings and checkups prevent and find issues early). Sometimes deep restorations or trauma to a tooth might also cause the nerve to be damaged to the point it needs root canal therapy. Once this happens, the pulp ends up being infected, and can even extend through the root tip and start to eat away at the surrounding bone (this is an abscess).
By the time the pulp is infected it needs to be treated, and can not heal on its own. It can even weaken the entire immune system. This is dangerous, and may be extremely painful. Signs that the pulp has actually become infected might include sensitivity to hot/cold or sugary foods, pain, swelling, discomfort to biting or pressure, and a bad taste in the mouth. Sometimes, however, no signs are apparent and the person is unaware of any problem up until a checkup.
A root canal is then carried out to clear out the infected tooth pulp, and sanitize the canals of the tooth. The only other treatment would be to remove the tooth. As soon as the infection is resolved, the canal(s) are filled in to prevent any more infection. Usually a core build-up and crown is suggested for bring back a tooth that has had root canal treatment.
