- Root Canal Therapy
Root canal treatment (also referred to as root canal therapy or endodontic therapy) is required when a cavity is allowed, through neglect, to reach all the way to the root pulp. (Regular cleanings and checkups prevent and find problems early). Sometimes deep restorations or trauma to a tooth might also trigger the nerve to be damaged to the point it needs root canal therapy. When this occurs, 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 must be treated, and can not recover by itself. It can even deteriorate the entire immune system. This is dangerous, and may be really agonizing. Symptoms that the pulp has actually become infected may consist of sensitivity to hot/cold or sugary foods, pain, 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 issue until a checkup.
A root canal is then carried out to clean out the infected tooth pulp, and decontaminate the canals of the tooth. The only other treatment would be to extract the tooth. As soon as the infection is fixed, the canal(s) are filled in to prevent any further infection. Usually a core build-up and crown is recommended for recovering a tooth that has actually had root canal treatment.
