Root Canal

The Team from Lake Panorama Dental

What is a Root Canal

A root canal is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected. During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed. Without treatment, the tissue surrounding the tooth will become infected and abscesses may form.

Common reasons for Root Canal therapy
Any trauma or infection of the nerve will result in the need for root canal therapy. Common reasons for root canal therapy include:

Bacteria from the decayed tooth invades the pulp by penetrating through the tooth.

Trauma, such as a chipped or broken tooth, occurs and results in the exposure of the nerve.

A tooth has become abscessed — also known as infected — from decay.

A tooth is slowly dying, due to aging or previous trauma that did not result in the need for treatment at the time of injury.

Advantages of root canal treatment

There are many types of advantages of using root canal treatment.

Normal chewing without pain

Control of sensation and biting in teeth

Appearance becomes normal and natural

Health of other teeth in mouth is not adversely affected

If a teeth is infected and root canal treatment is needed then it is important to take immediate steps to make sure that the infection could be eliminated on time. Delays in treatment for root canal cases could lead to spreading of infection to other teeth and the person has to suffer from a lot of pain and loss of many teeth.

Hence it is always important to see the Dentist every 6 months and as soon as you have having pain or discomfort with any of your teeth.
