Root Canal Therapy:
|Root canal treatment is simply removing injured, infected or dead pulp from your tooth. When the nerve of your tooth becomes infected, a root canal treatment allows you to keep the tooth rather than having to pull it out. This helps to prevent your other teeth from drifting out of line and thus causing jaw problems. In some circumstances, your dentist might recommend you that the root canal treated tooth be protected with a crown in order to prevent the tooth from fracturing.
There are different kind of Root Canal Therapy: Direct Root Canal For decayed tooth, Indirect Root Canal For decayed tooth , Direct Root Canal For cusps, Indirect Root Canal For cusps.
|First, you are given a local anesthetic (freezing). Second,the dentist places a rubber dam around the tooth being treated in order to protect your tooth from bacteria in your saliva. Third step involves your dentist making an openning in the damaged tooth to reach the root canal system and the damaged pulp. Then, the dentist removes the pulp and cleans the root canal system. After this step, the dentist cleans and fills the canal. And finally, the opening of the tooth is sealed and filled.|
The dentist will inform you about how to recover correctly after a Root Canal Therapy. Sometimes crowns needed in order to prevent further fractures and chippings because your tooth is weaker now. Some patients decide not to get a crown due to the costs. This could result in a fracture that cannot be restored anymore and this will cost you more time and money than you planned to spend. Also, soft tissue inflammation may be a source of irritation in the weeks following surgery, therefore consult your dentist for a treatment approach in order to help control any discomfort and swellings.
