Root Canal Lakeview, Chicago, IL

What Is Root Canal Therapy?

Endodontic treatment, or root canal therapy, deals with the pulp of your tooth.Your tooth is comprised of four main materials: The enamel, the dentin, cementum, and the pulp. The innermost part of the tooth is the pulp. The pulp inside your tooth is what provides nutrients and contains the tooth’s nerves. This material connects directly with the root of the tooth. In the event the pulp is injured or diseased, the tissue perishes. If you don’t act immediately, your tooth can become infected and you will be at a high risk of losing that tooth. Root canal therapy consists of salvaging the infected pulp, sealing the canal and strengthening your tooth by fitting a crown.

Why Would You Need a Root Canal Treatment?

If a diseased or injured nerve is left untreated, it can cause the infection to spread, since your tooth is not able to heal itself. An abscess can develop in the root tip or your jawbone, which can then cause bone damage around your teeth. The bone supporting your tooth can break down and end up loosening your tooth. You do have an alternative to getting the tooth pulled out, which is cheaper, but then you will be left with a missing tooth.

How Can You Benefit From Endodontic Treatment?

Endodontic treatment can not only help relieve intense pain in your mouth caused by infection, it can help you keep the teeth you have! You’ll also prevent future infection or injury to that tooth’s pulp. You can avoid a bigger problem down the line by getting a root canal procedure sooner rather than later.
