About Root Canal Treatment
Most dental professionals treat the outside of teeth, the enamel that protects teeth and the gums that support your teeth. A root canal specialist treats the inside of a tooth.
An endodontist treats the inside of a tooth when the pulp becomes inflamed or infected. Even without visible damage to the enamel or dentin, trauma to a tooth may damage pulp. Left untreated, pulp inflammation or infection can cause pain or lead to an abscess.
During a root canal procedure:
- The endodontist removes the damaged pulp then carefully cleans and disinfects the interior of the tooth
- The root canal specialist then fills and seals the tooth with a rubber-like material
- Finally, a protective crown or filling is put in place
Benefits of Root Canal Treatment
A root canal treatment helps you eat, smile, and talk with confidence and without pain. A root canal procedure might be right for you if you suffer from dental pain, infection and inflammation that prevent you from eating, talking, sleeping at night or enjoying your days.
There are several benefits to root canal treatment, including:
- Saving the natural tooth
- Efficient chewing
- Normal biting force and chewing sensation
- Natural appearance
- Protects other teeth from strain or excessive wear
- Enjoying the food you love
With proper care, most teeth that have undergone root canal treatments last as long as other natural teeth.
