Root canal oklahoma city

Causes of root canals:

  • Untreated cavity
  • Direct tooth trauma
  • Deep decay

Why Is Root Canal Therapy Needed?

Root canals are needed, because the core of the tooth has become infected. The core (pulp) of the tooth is the lifeblood of the tooth made up of blood vessels and nerves. The pulp supplies the tooth with nutrients and fluids and it is where sensations of hot and cold are felt. When bacteria reaches the soft, inner tissues, it causes infection, which slowly kills the tooth. The infection can cause major pain and discomfort. Major tooth infections if left untreated can be fatal. Root canal therapy relieves pain and restores dental health quickly.

root canal oklahoma city: How It Works

The treatment area is gently and thoroughly numbed with a local anesthetic. The damaged material is carefully removed and the inner tooth is accessed. All traces of contamination within the root canal are removed. Therefore, the root canal is cleansed and sanitized then a sealant material is applied into the root canal, preventing further damage. A restoration is placed over the treated tooth with the pain of the sensitive tooth being long forgotten.
