WHY ROOT CANAL TREATMENT IS NEEDED?
Root Canal Treatment is needed for tooth which has deep cavities, fractured tooth (cracked tooth), or a filling which has leakage due to the margins of the filling or dental restoration which leads to microorganisms entering inside the tooth via saliva. The microorganisms will destroy the tooth to the extent where it not only destroys the pulp and causes excruciating pain, but also swelling and severe sensitivity.
Once the microorganism starts to grow within, they will proliferate more inside and try to reach for pulp. After reaching the pulp, they will cause first sensitivity. Slowly they will enter the bone by the root canal and cause infection resulting in severe pain and discomfort. If the patient doesn’t come to the dentist at right time, then it will result in severe dental infection resulting in loosening of the tooth.
Root canal Treatment saves the tooth by removing the infected pulp and relieving the pain.
