When a tooth has been severely compromised by deep decay or traumatic injury, your dentist may recommend root canal treatment. Root canal therapy addresses damage to the dental pulp, which lies underneath he outermost biting surface of your tooth. The dental pulp contains blood vessels, nerves and core tissues which play an important role when your tooth is first developing, however, once the tooth is fully matured, are no longer required for the tooth to remain functional. When a tooth is fractured or decayed, bacteria can seep in and cause the dental pulp to become infected. If you are experiencing a toothache, which may be accompanied by swelling or fever, it’s important to see your dentist right away, as these may be symptoms of an infected tooth. During your Glendale root canal your dentist will remove the damaged dental pulp, clean and shape the pulp chamber, then seal the tooth with inert materials to prevent re-infection. Root canal treatment is 95% effective and a tooth that has been treated with a root canal can remain healthy and functional throughout your life. Following treatment, your dentist may recommend a crown to restore the function and appearance of your tooth.
