Causes Of Root Canal Issues
The main causes for root canal therapy are infections, diseases that damage the tooth root beyond repair, or severe trauma experienced by the tooth. Tooth trauma includes physical trauma as well as occasional gum inflammation due to other dental procedures. When bacteria existing in the mouth invades your tooth, it causes an infection in the centre of your tooth. The infection is contained in the root canal of a tooth.
Root canal treatment is a common dental procedure that is not often explained well by Dentists. There is a considerable school of opinion that some Dentists carry out this treatment when it is not absolutely necessary. Rest assured, at The Bristol Dental Practice , we have huge experience in understanding when root canal treatment is necessary.
It is perfectly understandable to have this repulsion from root canal treatments. The name of the procedure itself sound excruciating – both physically and financially. Truth is, root canal is the safest way to alleviate the pain brought by internal infection of the tooth or inflammation of the gums. When the insides of a tooth become damaged by decay, injuries, and wrong placement of fillings, the nerves would start to degenerate. Over time, the tissues die and an infection develops. As a result, you may feel more pain as the swelling persists. When not treated promptly, the infection may affect the bone supporting the root of the tooth.
Root canal treatment then becomes vital in stopping the infection before it becomes worse. There is no need to worry about twinges and aches as recent innovations in dentistry made this particular treatment pain-free and quick.
Sometimes the tooth is removed completely by the dentist and sometimes the root canal system of the tooth is removed. This treatment is almost always successful, with treated teeth surviving for 10+ years.
All teeth have between one and four channels and you need to extract all the pulp canals of the tooth. Once the inflammation has been controlled, the walls of the canals are modified in diameter.
The procedure should take between 2 and 4 sessions about, with modern knowledge, new techniques, instruments and state-of-the-art equipment, these can be completed in one session, if the gum is necrotic or has no injury or periapical abscess.
A periapical abscess is a collection of pus, usually caused by an infection that has spread from a tooth to the surrounding tissues. The body attacks an infection with large numbers of white blood cells. Pus is the accumulation of these white blood cells, dead tissue, and bacteria
