Aren’t your teeth worth saving with Root Canal Therapy? Every year teeth are saved with root canal therapy treatments. A root canal is needed when the pulp of the tooth is infected or inflamed. The pulp is the soft tissue inside the tooth under the enamel and dentin layers that contains blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue. The pulp helps your tooth grow roots during development. Pulp can become inflamed due to deep decay, repeated dental procedures, faulty crowns, trauma, or a crack or chip in the tooth. When pulp infection or inflammation is not treated then it can cause pain or an abscess. To treat this, the inflamed or infected pulp is removed and the tooth is cleaned and disinfected. The inside of the tooth is then filled and sealed with gutta-percha. According to Google, gutta-percha is “a hard, tough thermoplastic substance that is the coagulated latex of certain Malaysian trees. It consists chiefly of a hydrocarbon isomeric with rubber and is now used chiefly in dentistry and for electrical insulation.” It is then restored with a filling or crown and your tooth may now function like any other tooth. Dr. Nicholas and the Canyon Hills team will find out if root canal therapy is needed for you and how they can save your tooth.
