Root Canal Treatment
Every tooth consists of three different layers. The outermost and hardest
layer is enamel, and the second layer is dentin. The third is pulp, which is the
cavernous space where the live tissue and nerve of each tooth is located.
If for any reason the pulp space is exposed to the outside, the tissue
becomes contaminated and eventually infected. The exposure of pulp happens in
many circumstances, such as when you have a large cavity or a fractured tooth.
Your dentist can explain the exact reason for damage to this tissue. In these
cases, the treatment is usually root canal treatment.
Root canal treatment is the process of accessing the pulp space and
removing the infected dead tissue. The space is then shaped, disinfected and sealed
with special materials. Nowadays, root canal treatments are performed with
advanced techniques and materials, making them far more comfortable and faster.
After root canal treatment is complete, your restorative dentist will usually
place a crown on your tooth to safeguard against fracture.
