Set up your smile for summer success with root canal therapy. Root canals are treatments designed to shield your teeth after the pulp of a tooth has been damaged. If it becomes diseased or infected, it must be taken out and the tooth must be sealed or the tooth may have to be extracted.
Common causes that often require root canal treatments include:
– Some injuries can arise in teeth that is not visible, and damage to the pulp can still occur if the bacteria seeps through to the root.
– If a cavity has gone untreated in a tooth, it can eventually decay your tooth down to your root and cause your tooth’s pulp in your root to become contaminated and require a root canal.
– If you have a multitude of dental procedures on a tooth, the continuous wear and tear to the tooth could leave it vulnerable to a pulp infection, which would then require a root canal.
– If you have suffered an oral accident or injury that left you with broken or fractured teeth, the root of the teeth could be exposed and cause the pulp to become injured or diseased.
