How Does Root Canal Treatment Save Your Tooth?

Written by bfcdental on Monday, January 9, 2017 at 4:04 AM

Root canal treatment, which is also known as endodontic treatment, is done to the inside of the tooth and is necessary when the pulp becomes inflamed or infected. 
 
The inflammation or infection can have a variety of causes including repeated dental procedures on the tooth, deep decay, faulty crowns, or a crack or chip in the tooth. Additionally, the trauma to a tooth may lead to pulp damage even if the tooth has no visible chips or cracks. In case, the pulp inflammation or infection is left untreated, it can cause pain or lead to an abscess. 


 
Root Canal treatment in Thailand is becoming increasingly popular. During this treatment, the inflamed or infected pulp is removed and the inside of the tooth is carefully cleaned and disinfected, then filled and sealed with a rubber-like material, which is called gutta-percha. Afterwards, the tooth is restored with a crown or filling for protection. After the restoration, the tooth continues to function like any other tooth. 
 
Root canal treatment helps a person to maintain their natural smile, continue eating the foods they love and limits the need for ongoing dental work.
