The root canal therapy is a treatment conducted to treat the pulp tissue that has been damaged/infected/ inflamed. This particular pulp tissue that has sustained damages would damage your entire dental structure and your overall health if left untreated.
The pulp tissues of your dental structures can be found in the center of your teeth, which are soft and made out of nerves, vessels, and other tissues. The hollow part in the center of one’s teeth is called the pulp chamber which would continue to extend to the roots of your teeth. This pulp chamber contains all the pulp tissue material, which if not taken care of could reach to your teeth roots and permanently damage your teeth. If the infection from your damaged pulp tissues goes beyond, it could pose threats to your general well-being as well.
The root canal therapy/ the endodontics treatment is conducted to correct the damages of your pulp tissues, to rejuvenate your mouth and revive your dental health. This field of treatment is a specialty and is capable of being carried out by a specialist, also known as an endodontist. This specialist has undergone multiple years of training after completing their studies from dental school to focus their attention entirely on the procedure of root canal.
- The necessity of the root canal therapy arises because of certain reasons. You as a patient suffering from the problems related to a root canal might suffer from major levels of pain. A toothache to be precise. A toothache is a very common symptom, which could become difficult to deal with if not dealt with in time. There might also be extreme levels of sensitivity felt and would make matters worse for most people. If you suffer major levels of sensitivity to hot food items/ drinks, more than the cold ones, you would want to visit the endodontist for your root canal therapy.
- The pain could also go ahead and progress to become a headache for many, literally and figuratively.
- There are instances when the tooth roots have sustained so much damage that when a person tries to eat and chew, they would feel pangs of pain and major levels of pressure.
- There might be an occurrence of an abscess, which could lead to swelling and bleeding around the affected area as well. There could also be seen significant levels of swelling around your cheek and your jaw area. If the swelling is noticeable, it is high time you visit your dental care provider.
All these things talked about above can cause major trauma, and fatalities to people, which is not just limited to affecting their dental structures and other bodily functions, but can also affect their lifestyle as well. Therefore it is necessary to visit the dentist regularly for dental check ups, before letting such major things happening. The only result that could come out of all this is either you are going to lose your teeth permanently, or you are going to see a trauma happening to you, sooner or later.
