Root Canal Therapy
Root Canal Therapy is the way towards removing infected or injured tissue from inside the crown and underlying foundations of a tooth. The tissues get infected and injured due to tooth decay. It is one of the most common problems that occur when food gets stuck on the teeth and the bacteria in the mouth start digesting them which leads to acid formation. These acids destroy the enamel of the teeth which leads to the formation of the cavity. The bacteria reach the pulp or soft tissues present inside the teeth and cause a condition known as an abscess.
The procedure basically involves the removal of nerve and pulp, then the inside of the teeth are cleaned and sealed. If left untreated, the tissues around the base of your tooth can end up being contaminated. This would lead to swelling and ulcers may shape inside the tooth or potentially in the bone around the base of the tooth. Hence it should be remembered that Root Canal Therapy relieves you from pain and the procedure should not be feared due to its complexity.
