Root Canal Therapy
Solution to saving your natural teeth.
Root canal therapy, also known as endodontic therapy, is a dental procedure used to treat tooth decay and infection of the nerve of the tooth. If the infection is not treated it can eventually spread to other parts of your body.
There are many reasons why root canal treatment is necessary. In some cases a small fracture in one of the teeth may occur, which leads to an infection inside the tooth structure. Other times, bacteria can penetrate through a cavity and remain inside the dentin layer which underlies enamel in your teeth.
Root canal therapy treatment involves removing the nerve from the affected tooth and cleaning out all infection in order to save the tooth. The nerve tissue is replaced by filling material, which can be artificial or natural, depending on the situation.
Many times your dentist may advise you to also have a crown placed over the tooth once the root canal treatment has been completed. This will help to strengthen your tooth and protect it from further damage or decay.
Root canal therapy is usually the best solution to save your natural teeth. Grace Dental of Overland Park, Kansas offers a fast, affordable and effective service for anyone in need of root canal therapy.
