Root canal treatment is only required when the nerve and the blood vessels within your tooth becomes infected.
This treatment will prevent you from losing your tooth by removing the infection before it causes health complications.
Root canal treatment if indicated when the nerve and blood supply within the tooth becomes infected, irreversibly inflamed or simply dies.
Root canal treatment essentially involves painlessly removing the dead or dying nerve other remnants from the inside of the tooth, disinfecting the tooth and then placing a biocompatible filling material inside the tooth. If left untreated the ensuing toothache is debilitating.
Infection of the tooth can be caused by many things, such as trauma to the tooth, untreated tooth decay, cracks and chips or repeated dental procedures.
Symptoms of a tooth infection can include intense pain, swelling of the tooth and gums or other visible signs of injury or sensitivity to temperature.
It is important that a correct assessment of the tooth is conducted to ensure that the treatment will not only be successful but also the tooth remains functional after treatment.
