- 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). Often deep restorations or trauma to a tooth may also trigger the nerve to be harmed to the point it needs root canal therapy. When this occurs, 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 should be treated, and can not heal by itself. It can even deteriorate the whole immune system. This is dangerous, and may be extremely uncomfortable. Symptoms that the pulp has become infected might consist of 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 are apparent and the person is unaware of any problem till a checkup.
A root canal is then performed to clear out the infected tooth pulp, and decontaminate 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 additional infection. Typically a core build-up and crown is recommended for bring back a tooth that has had root canal therapy.
