Root Canal Therapy

November 26, 2015

 

A root canal problem can be a very serious issue if not treated as it may cause  further implications so to treat it as soon as possible is a must. An endodontic treatment is needed when there is pulp inflammation which is usually caused by a number of factors, such as:

  • Serious tooth decay
  • Cracked or chipped tooth
  • Tooth injury

If left untreated, the inflammation or infection can cause a great deal of pain and can possibly lead to an abscess.

Root Canal treatment is a process that involves the removal of the inner layer of pulp from within the tooth, which has become infected by the bacteria and disease, present within the mouth. The pulp provides the tooth from your blood vessels. This is also where the nerves are located and also the sensitive tissue.

To help with the efficient extraction of the root canal, a small hole is drilled into your tooth so that extraction and cleaning can take place. When this has taken place, the tooth is then re-shaped and the void inside the tooth is then filled to leave a full tooth.
