Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy also known as endodontic treatment is a management of a tooth that is badly affected or has decayed. The procedure/treatment helps to eliminate the infection and protect the tooth from any invasion of the microbial in the future.
When Is The Treatment Required
Most patients would never encounter any of their teeth extracted if they took courage and visit a dentist to do a checkup. In our clinic, we recommend everyone to adopt a routine to have their teeth checked so as to curb any disease or condition warranting some attention early to avoid late intervention. Some of those last minute rushes end up to the final requirement of an “extract”. Root canal therapy is one effective method that has advanced so much now and saved millions of their precious teeth.
Root Canal Therapy is required when a tooth is deeply infected. Most of those infections happen in the pulp inside the tooth by a bacterium. It could happen through:
- Crack (may happen after eating a hard bone or chewing a stone mistakenly)
- Severe infection
If proper precaution is not taken on time, the last stage which is taken to salvage your mouth and to avoid the spread of the bacteria is tooth removal. In that case, positive oral health care plan is all you need to keep your smile healthy.
