Root Canal Treatment


Root Canal Treatment
Root canal therapy is used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or infected. This procedure includes removal of nerve and pulp which are infected or damaged. Once nerve and pulp are removed, inside of teeth is cleansed and sealed.

Why Damaged Pulp Need to Be Removed?
Damage in nerve tissue or pulp leads to break down. This causes multiplication of bacteria in pulp chamber. These bacteria cause infection and pus in pockets at the tooth’s root. This infection can cause following complications:
1) A hole through the side of tooth would be formed. This causes blood drain into gums or through the cheek into the skin.
2) Swelling in areas like face, neck, or head.

Root canal is an effort to save the natural tooth but if it doesn’t seem to work then tooth extraction is way to go. Tooth is extracted and replaced with a bridge, implant, or removable partial denture. But these procedures are time consuming and more expensive than root canal treatment. Sometimes infections might reoccur after root canal. In such case, patient need to consult the dentist again.
