Root Canal
root canalRoot canal, also known as endodontic therapy, is the commonly used term for the main canals within the dentin of the tooth. These are part of the natural cavity within a tooth that consists of the dental pulp chamber, the main canals, and sometimes more intricate anatomical branches that may connect the root canals to each other or to the root surface of the tooth. Root canals are filled with a highly vascularized, loose connective tissue; the dental pulp. This sometimes becomes infected and inflamed, generally due to cavities or tooth fractures that allow microorganisms, mostly bacteria from the oral flora or their byproducts, access to the pulp chamber or the root canals; the infected tissue is removed by a surgical intervention known as endodontic therapy and commonly called 'a root canal'. root canal girl

If root canal treatment is not done, the infected tooth may need to be extracted. Whenever possible, it is best to keep your natural teeth. Keeping your natural teeth also helps you to avoid other treatments, such as implants or bridges. In addition, if you ignore an infected or injured tooth the infection may spread to other parts of your body. Having root canal treatment on a tooth does not mean that the tooth will need to be extracted. Once a tooth is has had root canal, it will almost always last for the rest of your life.
