About Root Canal Treatment

For a tooth that is infected or decayed; root canal therapy stands as one of the best forms of treatment. Root canals are used to save your natural tooth by removing the pulp and bacteria. The space left behind is filled with medicated dental materials that restore the strength of the tooth.

The Alternative to Extraction:

  • Root canal therapy is a highly successful procedure which breaks the usual norm that a severely decayed tooth has to be removed.
  • The indications for a root canal treatment include sensitivity to hot or cold, severe tooth pain, swelling or tenderness, an abscess on the gums etc.
  • Reasons for root canal may also include injury or trauma and infection within the tooth.

When is Root Canal Therapy Required?

Root canal treatment is required when decay has reached through the tooth enamel and the bone. At this stage, the tooth usually has been decayed and the root of the tooth starts to swell up. The injured root is what causes the severe pain. In such cases, proper treatment is required to treat the disease to prevent further problems.
