Root Canal is the treatment of an infected pulp of the teeth that is infected, inflamed or dead. Pulp is located at the centre of the tooth and comprises of nerves, dental cells, blood tissue and vessels. A pulp chamber is the connection between roots of the teeth and adjoining bones. The procedure is also known as endodontic treatment.
Root canal can be performed on a variety of reasons. Some of the reasons for performing root canal are:
Pain due to infection: If the patient is suffering from continuous pain due to an infected tooth even when it is not provoked by activities such as eating, root canal treatment is recommended. In these cases, an infected tooth suffers from extreme sensitivity to hot and cold causing discomfort to the patient and can further cause headache to the individual.
Abscess: If the infected tooth has gone dead, it can result into pus formation. Abscess is pus formation around the infected area caused due tooth decay once it is dead. If left untreated, it can result in severe tooth ache for the patient. In these cases root canal treatment is performed to take away bacteria and dead tissues located inside the pulp chamber.
Deep Cavity: In deep cavity cases, there is tooth decay caused to tissue bacterial infection that has reached the pulp of the tooth. For such cases root canal treatment in Thailand is performed to remove tooth decay and infected nerve as well from pulp chamber.
Fracture: If there is fracture that extends deep into the root of the tooth, root canal is performed to retain the post needed to support the crown.
Root canal treatment is essential as an untreated tooth may result in tooth loss and decay along with bone loss in the jaw.
This procedure relieves the inflammation or infection in the bony area around the end of your tooth that continues after endodontic treatment.
