Endodontic Treatment (Root Canal)
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 find issues early). In some cases deep restorations or trauma to a tooth may also cause 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 should be treated, and can not recover by itself. It can even deteriorate the entire immune system. This is dangerous, and might be very agonizing. Symptoms that the pulp has ended up being 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. Sometimes, however, no symptoms are apparent and the person is unaware of any problem till a checkup.
A root canal is then carried out to clean out the infected tooth pulp, and sanitize the canals of the tooth. The only other treatment would be to extract the tooth. As soon as the infection is dealt with, the canal(s) are filled in to prevent any more infection. Generally a core build-up and crown is suggested for bring back a tooth that has had root canal treatment.
