Causes of Damaged Pulp
Many things can cause the nerve to become infected or damaged, such as:
- Deep-seated and untreated decay
- Decay underneath a deep filling
- Trauma that damages a tooth
- Grinding or clenching of teeth
- Advanced gum disease
The Procedure of Root Canal Treatment
Root canal treatment involves removing the infected soft tissue from the pulp chamber, followed by special cleaning of the tooth canals and replacing it with special dental filling. Commonly, the treated tooth is restored with the use of a dental crown to guarantee that it can regain its form and function.
Most of the time, the procedure of endodontic treatment is relatively simple with little to no discomfort, which may involve one to three dental visits. The success rate for root canal treatment is good overall.
After the treatment, around 90 to 95 percent of patients who go through root canal therapy can expect a functional tooth. Following a good dental care routine can make your root canal treated tooth last a lifetime.
