Root canal treatment involves repairing and saving an infected or damaged tooth. In the treatment, the damaged, dead, or diseased tooth’s pulp is removed then the space is cleaned, shaped, and then washed. Initially, teeth that had been injured or infected with pulp cavity were removed, but now CKFarr can treat this.
Most common reasons that can destroy the pulp cavity include:
a. Cracking of the tooth.
b. Deep cavities.
c. Tooth injuries, for example, a past or recent tooth knock.
If the dead or infected tooth pulp is left untreated, pus may build up at the tip of your jawbone, and this could later cause abscess which could cause pain on the tooth or destroy the surrounding jaw bone.
The number of visits an individual takes depends on the situation of their teeth. The steps taken include:
With good dental care, the treated and restored teeth or tooth can last a lifetime. Regular dental examinations and good oral hygiene are required to avoid dental problems. The tooth may become prone to fractures and become more brittle since there is no pulp that will keep the tooth alive.
To care for the root canal after the treatment, the patient should practice good oral hygiene, avoid chewing the hard foods that may cause the tooth to break and make regular visits to the dentists and the hygienists should be done for cleanings and examinations.
