What is root canal therapy?
Let us put this in simple terms, a root canal treatment is done when the core of your tooth is infected. After cleaning, the canal is shaped, disinfected, filled and sealed with a natural rubber-like material. Every tooth in the mouth has at least one root through which the jawbone feeds the teeth, the minerals and nutrients it requires to stay healthy. The root contains one or more canals which have nerves and blood vessels connected to the pulp chamber which is in the middle of the tooth.
Root canal treatment is basically designed to save your dead tooth when the infection reaches the pulp. The root canal procedure cleans the infected tooth and canals and fills them to relieve you from intense discomfort caused by the tooth infection.
Why is a root canal treatment done?
Before the dentist recommends you a root canal treatment, he/she will first determine if you are require the procedure. You may need a root canal treatment for various reasons with the most common one being tooth decay that has reached the tooth's pulp. You might also require root canal therapy if your tooth is cracked or fractured, and its pulp is exposed to oral bacteria. Treating decay before it gets too deep can prevent root canal treatment.
Root canal therapy is a fairly common process. It alleviates you from a severe toothache and dental suffering, and saves the tooth.
