LET'S SAVE THAT TOOTH
Root canal treatment is used to save a tooth that has become irreversibly injured or infected due to a large cavity, a cracked tooth, tooth trauma, or some other unknown cause. Often times patients will go to the dentist because of a severe tooth ache which normally indicates that a root canal is necessary. The treatment involves removing the pulp and nerve tissue of the tooth, and disinfecting the infected area. If the treatment is not performed, the infection can grow causing pus to accumulate at the root tip which if left untreated can spread to the surrounding bone and tissue. In some situations an infected tooth can result in intense pain and swelling, and may sometimes result in serious life-threatening complications.
