Endodontic Treatment (Root Canal)
Root canal treatment (also referred to 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 discover issues early). In some cases deep restorations or trauma to a tooth might also trigger the nerve to be harmed to the point it requires root canal therapy. Once 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 needs to be treated, and can not recover by itself. It can even deteriorate the entire immune system. This is dangerous, and might be really agonizing. Signs that the pulp has become infected may include sensitivity to hot/cold or sweets, discomfort, swelling, discomfort to biting or pressure, and a bad taste in the mouth. In some cases, however, no signs appear and the person is unaware of any problem up until a checkup.
A root canal is then carried out to clean out the infected tooth pulp, and disinfect the canals of the tooth. The only other treatment would be to extract the tooth. When the infection is resolved, the canal(s) are filled in to prevent any further infection. Generally a core build-up and crown is recommended for restoring a tooth that has had root canal treatment.
