- Root Canal Therapy
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 detect issues early). In some cases deep restorations or trauma to a tooth might also trigger the nerve to be harmed to the point it needs root canal therapy. When 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 should be treated, and can not heal on its own. It can even deteriorate the whole immune system. This is dangerous, and might be very painful. Signs that the pulp has ended up being infected may 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 until 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 resolved, the canal(s) are filled in to prevent any additional infection. Generally a core build-up and crown is recommended for bring back a tooth that has actually had root canal treatment.
