What is a Root Canal Treatment?

Root canal treatment is necessary when the pulp (soft tissue inside your teeth containing blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue) becomes inflamed or diseased. During root canal treatment, your dentist or endodontist (a dentist who specializes in treating the insides of teeth) removes the diseased pulp. The pulp chamber and root canal(s) of the tooth are then cleaned and sealed. If the infected pulp is not removed, pain and swelling can result, and your tooth may have to be removed.

Causes of an infected pulp could include:

  • a deep cavity
  • repeated dental procedures
  • a cracked or broken tooth
  • injury to the tooth (even if there’s not a visible crack or chip)
If you continue to care for your teeth and gums your restored tooth could last a lifetime. However, regular checkups are necessary; a tooth without its nerve can still develop cavities or gum disease. Most of the time, a root canal is a relatively simple procedure with little or no discomfort involving one to three visits. Best of all, it can save your tooth and your smile.

  2. Thanks for Sharing the such of information about Root canal treatment.I think Root canal treatment is needed when the blood nerve supply of the tooth is infected through decay or injury. In some cases, the tooth could darken in color which may mean that the nerve of the tooth has died (or is dying). This would need root canal treatment.

  3. Family and friends can help by setting good examples about eating and offering positive comments about healthy eating practices.

  4. Root canal treatment aims to clean, shape and fill the entire root canal of a tooth. A root canal infection can be caused by several things, including decay, injury and possibly also gum disease. Root canal treatment can repair your damaged tooth without it having to be removed

  5. Having a root canal therapy Oakville is the brilliant idea you can undertake to save your teeth that otherwise would die and have to be removed. People have a misunderstanding that pulling that damaged tooth will be a better and cost effective solution, the truth is that tooth extraction will be ultimately costlier and cause issues for adjacent teeth.
