Dental Root Canal Facts

Introduction:Root canals, in dentistry, are common place to maintain the natural tooth and remove pain as described in this list.

  • 01

    Reasons Why Procedure Needed

    Root canal procedures are needed since the tooth roots are not successfully nurturing the entire tooth in the gum and jawbone. There are sometimes abscesses that form below the gum line creating the need to do a root canal on a tooth as well. This abscess can lay dormant for weeks or even months depending on the pain threshold of the person. Until the root canal procedure is finished, the tooth will continue to cause multiple dental problems. There will be symptoms of throbbing pain, swelling and redness of the gum around the affected tooth. A rise in temperature indicates an infection is brewing in the body.

    Dentist to See About a Root Canal

    Many DDS, or general dentists do root canals. It is when an endodontist is required that the difficult root canal is accomplished for the patient. The endodontist will use microscopic procedures to locate the closed or obscure root canal and clean out the debris in that canal. The endodontist or regular DDS will scrape, remove the nerve, treat the canal and then flush the canal with dental chemicals then fill that area with a temporary filling material. Until you are observed to need an endodontist, the regular DDS will be the dentist to see; to evaluate the circumstances in your oral cavity regarding a root canal. Prices for a root canal vary from $350 to $1200 depending on the tooth and how many roots it has.

    What If Nothing Is Done After Pain Stops

    In the event pain stops where there was throbbing pain at one time it is necessary to still see a dentist. The hollow space where the nerve has disintegrated is then an area for bacteria to grow. The nerve is completely dead, however the tooth is not well by any means. This can lead to ultimate bone loss which can alter the looks of the entire face due to the bone structure being altered. If nothing is done after the pain stops the entire body wellness can be significantly compromised. It is not uncommon to feel sluggish while the body continues to try to fight the infection that is brewing in that area of concern.

  • 04

    After the Root Canal Is Performed

    Since the structure of the tooth is now treated with the root canal procedure, the nerve is removed, the canal free from debris and closed with a permanent filling after a few days, the next possibility might be suggested by your dentist. After one or two weeks of that root canal dental action being performed a crown might be necessary. This could be recommended since the body of that tooth might need structural support with that crown. Even after that crown is applied, the tooth might still need to be extracted and a dental implant or other tooth replacement put into that area. Extractions after root canals could be as short as weeks, months or as long as years.

    Fatal Consequences of Lack of Dental Care

    The main purpose of a root canal is to avoid extractions. It is necessary to stop the bacteria going into the tooth down into the nerve area and jawbone of the affected tooth. The natural body's own fight against bacteria like this that is being created in the root canal is stopped by the enclosure making the root canal mandatory. Unless the root canal is done, severe consequences can occur leading to even death. This is a true fact from the author's dentist. Since the oral cavity is so close to the brain, the infection is known to actually travel to create the ultimate and untimely death if the root canal is not performed.
