- Root Canal Therapy
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 discover issues early). In some cases deep restorations or trauma to a tooth may also cause the nerve to be harmed to the point it requires root canal therapy. As soon as this happens, the pulp becomes 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 recover by itself. It can even weaken the entire immune system. This is dangerous, and might be really uncomfortable. Symptoms that the pulp has actually become infected might consist of sensitivity to hot/cold or sweets, pain, swelling, discomfort to biting or pressure, and a bad taste in the mouth. Sometimes, however, no symptoms are apparent and the individual is unaware of any issue until a checkup.
A root canal is then performed to clear out the infected tooth pulp, and disinfect the canals of the tooth. The only other treatment would be to remove the tooth. As soon as the infection is dealt with, the canal(s) are filled in to prevent any further infection. Normally a core build-up and crown is recommended for restoring a tooth that has had root canal treatment.
