What is a root canal and why is it sometimes necessary?
A dental therapy that’s used by dentists to treat an injured or diseased tooth, root canals are procedures that relieve pain cause by an inflamed and infected tooth.
At each tooth’s core, inside the root canal’s small chambers, is pulp tissue that contains blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissues. Should inflammation and infection develop here, it’s likely that you’ll feel intense pain and/or tooth sensitivity. If not treated right away, the pain may minimize and go away as the nerves die, but the issue of infection doesn’t. In fact, it can cause tooth loss in some circumstances.
What does root canal treatment entail?
During root canal therapy, after anesthesia has been administered, your dentist will eradicate the infected pulp and disinfect and clean the tooth in question. Your tooth will then be filled, shaped, and a special material that resembles rubber will seal it before a crown or filling is applied.
How long does this treatment last?
With careful and continual daily oral hygiene, a tooth that’s been treated with a root canal can last a lifetime without issues.
