Your teeth are very strong durable objects, protected by a layer of tough enamel. Unfortunately they can be damaged internally by unforeseen events and this can be problematic. Often a procedure called a root canal treatment is required to sort out the problem.
Problems can occur because teeth are not actually solid blocks. They are hollow and cased inside them are an amount of important things like nerves, veins and other assorted tissues. The area which they exist in is called the pulp chamber and any damage to this area can require root canal treatment to rectify it. Any accidents affecting the mouth can cause the pulp to become infected or advanced and serious dental decay can lead to an infection in the chamber.
Root canal treatment is a complicated procedure which requires x-rays to determine the extent of the damage to the pulp chamber, the length and number of the roots, but it is entirely necessary so that an abscess does not form. In entering the pulp chamber through the root canal, your dentist will be looking to ensure that any infected materials from inside the chamber are effectively removed and disposed of.
Keeping up with your home oral hygiene routine in the advised manor and being sure to visit your Sutton dentist every six months, should ensure that you won’t need root canal treatment. But accidents can happen and you should be vigilant for signs of dental pain which might mean that you need the surgery.Back to Blog
