Root Canal Treatment& lt;hr />
If internal structures of tooth are damaged it advisable to go in for a root canal therapy. Root canal therapy can restore your tooth to its state of health by treating the damaged part of your tooth.
There are two basic parts in a tooth. One is the crown and the second is the root. Inside the crown and roots is soft tissue (pulp) that helps keep your tooth nourished. The pulp helps nourish the tooth and is made up of tiny blood vessels and nerves.
Bacteria get invaded through cavities and the pulp gets infected. Eventually, the bacteria may destroy the pulp. The infection spread down the root canal, often causing, aching, or pain when you chew.
The goal of root canal therapy is to improve the health of your damaged tooth. During treatment, the pulp is extirpated from your root canals through a small opening in the crown. Then the canals are cleaned and disinfected.
Treatment may take one or more visits. The tooth is first numbed. An opening is made in your tooth and any existing fillings or decay is removed. Then infected pulp is removed with tiny instrument called files and makes them ready.
