Root Canal

What is root canal treatment?

Every tooth has a vital structure called the pulp. It carries nerves and blood vessels. Any pain or sensitivity in the tooth is because of the triggering of the nerves and blood vessels in the pulp. When a tooth is infected, the bacteria start to damage the tooth and invade inside the tooth structure. Once they reach the pulp, the bacteria will kill the pulp tissue and can cause swelling and throbbing pain. Other conditions like trauma, fracture of the teeth, and night grinding can also expose the pulp to the outer environment. In these conditions, root canal treatment is performed to try and save the original tooth. 

Procedure and uses of root canal treatment

In root canal treatment, first the infected pulp is completely removed. Next, the canal is cleaned, sterilized and shaped. Finally, the canal is filled with the most biocompatible material so that the tooth will not get infected or cause trouble again. This is an appropriate technique that can be used to preserve a natural tooth so that it can serve its purpose. Preserving the natural teeth is always ideal to maintain the supporting teeth and corresponding structures. It is mandatory to come back for a crown on the root canal-treated tooth for it to regain its strength otherwise the tooth will most likely break at some point. Both the root canal and associated crown can usually be completed within 2 to 3 visits.
