Root Canal Treatment
Have you been experiencing pain and sensitivity in one of more of your teeth? You may be in need of a root canal treatment. This technique is highly useful in relieving tooth pain and saving teeth that are in danger of decaying or falling out.
Each of your teeth has three layers in it. The first layer is called enamel, and the second is called dentin. The third, innermost layer of the tooth is called pulp, and it consists of a cavernous space that houses live tissue and nerves. If the pulp is exposed for any reason, the tissue can become contaminated and even infected. This circumstance typically occurs as a result of a large cavity or a fractured tooth. In order to remedy this problem, your dentist will perform a root canal treatment.
During a root canal, your dental professional will work to rid the pulp space of infected, dead tissue. Next, he’ll disinfect the area and seal the space with special materials. After completing the root canal procedure, your dentist will protect the tooth from fracture by applying a crown.
At Apex Dental, our dentists use advanced techniques and materials when performing root canals. Therefore, they are much faster and more comfortable than they were in previous times.
Having a root canal treatment offers several benefits. It will ensure that you will be able to chew and bite with efficiency and force. In addition, it will protect your other teeth from excessive wear and strain. With a root canal procedure, you’ll be able to continue eating the foods you love. If given proper care, teeth that have undergone a root canal treatment will likely last just as long as regular teeth. In fact, they’ll often last throughout your lifetime.
