Root Canals

Keywords: Root Canal

In the past, when a tooth became too decayed or infected for a dentist to place a dental filing, the tooth simply had to be removed. Today, advances in dental treatments allow dentists to save millions of teeth each year with a root canal. Root canals become necessary when the dental pulp inside the tooth becomes infected or inflamed. This infection may be caused by decay, faulty dental crowns, chips or cracks in the tooth, or oral trauma. When this happens, the inflamed pulp can cause pain, and in cases where infection is present, and abscess may form at the base of the tooth root. This can be extremely painful.
