Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment (endodontic treatment) fixes problems with a tooth’s soft core or ‘dental pulp’. Dental pulp lies within the tooth, extending from the crown of the tooth to the tip of the root.

It contains nerves, connective tissue and blood and lymph vessels which provide oxygen, nutrients and feeling to the tooth. It also regulates the growth and development of the tooth during childhood.

Root canal treatment involves removing inflamed, diseased or dead pulp from the pulp chamber and root canals of a tooth and replacing it with a filling in order to prevent the tooth from being extracted.

Why do you require root canal treatment?

Root canal treatment requires when you have damage, disease or inflamed dental pulp. It includes:

  1. Infection caused by tooth decay
  2. Sensitivity and pain in tooth
  3. Trauma on the tooth from blow or sport injury
  4. Tooth mobility
  5. Swelling on the gums near the surrounding tooth
The root canal therapy is carried out based on the patient’s tooth x-rays.

Benefits of Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy prevents your teeth from extraction. According to the dental perspective, it is good to retain the natural teeth instead of replacing them with new ones. Otherwise, it can be time-consuming, painful and costly.

Examine by Expert Dentists

If you do not undergo the root canal treatment when needed, you may spread gum and connective tissue infection, which leads to loss of the tooth. It is always advisable to take an expert opinion before undergoing dental treatment or surgery. For further assistance, consult with Myra Smiles Dental and Implant Centre experienced dentist.
