- Root Canal Therapy
Root canal treatment (also described 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 identify issues early). Often deep restorations or trauma to a tooth might also trigger the nerve to be harmed to the point it requires root canal treatment. 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 has to be treated, and can not recover by itself. It can even deteriorate the entire immune system. This is dangerous, and may be really painful. Signs that the pulp has actually ended up being infected may include sensitivity to hot/cold or sugary foods, discomfort, swelling, pain to biting or pressure, and a bad taste in the mouth. Often, however, no signs are apparent and the individual is unaware of any problem till a checkup.
A root canal is then carried out to clear out the infected tooth pulp, and disinfect the canals of the tooth. The only other treatment would be to remove the tooth. Once the infection is dealt with, 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 had root canal therapy.
