Root Canal (Endodontic Treatment)
Root canal treatment (also described as root canal therapy or endodontic therapy) is necessary when a cavity is allowed, through neglect, to reach all the way to the root pulp. (Regular cleanings and checkups prevent and discover problems early). Often deep restorations or trauma to a tooth might also cause the nerve to be damaged to the point it needs root canal therapy. As soon as this takes place, 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 has to be treated, and can not heal by itself. It can even weaken the whole immune system. This is dangerous, and may be extremely painful. Signs that the pulp has actually become infected may consist of sensitivity to hot/cold or sweets, pain, swelling, pain 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 till 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. When the infection is dealt with, the canal(s) are filled in to prevent any more infection. Generally a core build-up and crown is recommended for bring back a tooth that has had root canal therapy.
