If you ever suffer from a tooth that has been damaged, you may require a root canal therapy. Root canal therapies are used in situations where the pulp of a tooth has been infected or diseased. If you fail to extract a damaged pulp, the tooth may end up dying. Through the use of a root canal therapy, it is possible to extract the pulp to allow the tooth to function for many years to come.
In order to ensure your smile stands the best chance of functioning properly in the future, the use of a root canal therapy to remove pulp is often required. If you have any issues with your tooth enamel being damaged, an inspection of your tooth will need to be done. By visiting our dentist, you can determine if any microscopic damage has been done to your tooth enamel or if any oral accidents or injuries have left you susceptible to further harm. Furthermore, any time that you have deep cavities that cause holes in your tooth enamel, pulp infection and disease are likely. In addition, repeated dental procedures that have slowly stripped away the tooth enamel on a tooth can lead to holes and cracks where bacteria can slip in and damage your pulp. If any of these cases arise, root canal therapy will be needed.
