Root Canal Treatment



A root canal is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected. During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed. Without treatment, the tissue surrounding the tooth will become infected and abscesses may form. The pulp or pulp chamber is the soft area within the root canal. The tooth's nerve lies within the root canal.

At the center of your tooth is pulp. Pulp is a collection of blood vessels that helps to build the surrounding tooth. Infection of the pulp can be caused by trauma to the tooth, deep decay, cracks and chips, or repeated dental procedures.

"Root canal" is the term used to describe the natural cavity within the center of the tooth.

Why Does Tooth Pulp Need to Be Removed?

At the point when a tooth's nerve tissue or mash is harmed, it separates and microorganisms start to duplicate inside the mash chamber. The microscopic organisms and other rotted flotsam and jetsam can cause a disease or turn into a boil tooth. A boil is a discharge filled pocket that structures toward the finish of the underlying foundations of the tooth. A sore happens when the contamination spreads the distance past the finishes of the foundations of the tooth.

  • Swelling that may spread to different territories of the human body.
  • Bone misfortune around the tip of the root.
  • Seepage issues broadening outward from the root.

Signs of Infection

  • Minimal to severe pain.
  • Tooth discoloration.
  • Swelling and irritation in the surrounding gum tissue.
  • Signs of infection visible on a radiograph.

Dentists typically recommend a root canal in such situations to save the affected tooth and preserve its functionality.
