How the Endodontic Treatment can Save your Tooth ?
Root canal or also known as endodontic treatment (treatment done to the inside of the tooth) is necessary when the pulp becomes inflamed or infected and start causing pain to the patient. The inflammation or infection can have a variety of causes: deep decay, repeated dental procedures on the tooth, faulty crowns, or a crack or chip in the tooth. In addition, trauma to a tooth may cause pulp damage even if the tooth has no visible chips or cracks. What will happened if you do not treat pulp inflammation or infection ? If you do not treat pulp inflammation, this can lead to serious pain or the worst case scenario - abscess.
During root canal or endodontic treatment, the inflamed or infected pulp is removed and the inside of the tooth is carefully cleaned and disinfected, then filled and sealed with a rubber-like material. Afterwards, the tooth is restored with a crown or filling for protection. After restoration, the tooth continues to function like any other tooth. Endodontic treatment helps you maintain your natural smile, continue eating the foods you love and limits the need for ongoing dental work. How long is the effect from the treatment most teeth that have had root canal treatment can last a lifetime.
