Root Canal Treatment

Posted on 11/7/2022 by Robert Leale
Root Canal TreatmentRoot canal treatment is used to treat any infection at the center of your tooth. The method is painless and will help to save your teeth from being removed. Harmful bacteria primarily cause infection at the center of your teeth or the root canal. There are some dental conditions in which root canal treatment is most valuable, and they include:

Tooth Abscess

A tooth abscess is a collection of pus in your teeth caused by harmful bacteria. The dental procedure helps relieve pain caused by a tooth abscess. The dentist will carefully remove the inflamed pulp. The inner surfaces of the teeth are cleaned and well disinfected. Later a filling is put in place to help seal the space.

Tooth Pain

Tooth pain tends to occur due to numerous dental issues. If you note pain deep in your teeth, you must talk to your dentist. They may recommend root canal treatment as the best alternative to help relieve the pain and discomfort.

Inflamed Gums

When your tooth is infected, pus may collect on your gums. The situation can lead to tender and swollen gums. The procedure helps to target the diseased gums and provides faster relief of symptoms.

Cracked or Chipped Teeth

Your teeth can crack or chip when engaging in sports or when an object hits you. When your teeth are cracked, bacteria will tend to travel to the pulp of your teeth. Root canal treatment helps to clean and disinfect your teeth. The procedure is excellent for preventing infection and relieving any pain and discomfort.

Root canal treatment is a painless and cost-effective treatment method. It helps prevent the infection from spreading to the adjacent teeth, minimize the risk of damage to your jawbone, and eliminate the requirement for tooth extraction. The recovery period is also very short and will take less than one week to recover completely.
