- Root Canal Therapy
Root canal treatment (also described as root canal therapy or endodontic therapy) is needed when a cavity is allowed, through neglect, to reach all the way to the root pulp. (Regular cleanings and checkups prevent and identify problems early). In some cases deep restorations or trauma to a tooth may also trigger the nerve to be damaged to the point it requires root canal treatment. As soon as this occurs, the pulp becomes infected, and can even extend through the root tip and begin to eat away at the surrounding bone (this is an abscess).
By the time the pulp is infected it must be treated, and can not heal on its own. It can even damage the entire immune system. This is dangerous, and may be really uncomfortable. Signs that the pulp has ended up being infected might consist of sensitivity to hot/cold or sweets, pain, swelling, pain to biting or pressure, and a bad taste in the mouth. Sometimes, however, no symptoms 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. Once the infection is fixed, the canal(s) are filled in to prevent any additional infection. Generally a core build-up and crown is recommended for bring back a tooth that has had root canal treatment.
