Root Canal Treatment
What is Root Canal Treatment ?
Root canal treatment provides a way to save a tooth that’s been badly damaged by breakage or decay. Before treatment was done, the tooth was painful when you bit down on it and had a toothache or the tooth might have been sensitive to touch.
You might not know root canal treatment is needed until your dentist informs you. Some people have the impression that a root canal is difficult to get through, but generally speaking, it is only a little more complicated than receiving a large filling.
Why Is a Root Canal Done?
Due to injury or decay, bacteria can invade the soft inner tissue of a tooth. When this happens, the resulting infection will kill the soft tissue containing the blood supply and nerve.This infection results in inflammation and swelling and because the inside of a tooth is a very tiny space, the ensuing pressure may give you a toothache. Regardless, the infected tissue must be cleaned out and replaced with sterile material so the tooth can be preserved.
