Reasons for a Root Canal
Inside each of your teeth is a small amount of soft tissue called the dental pulp, which contains numerous blood vessels as well as a sensitive nerve. Bacteria can sometimes find its way to the pulp and cause it to swell or even die, leading to a buildup in pressure within the tooth at is less than pleasant. This can occur due to a cavity going untreated for a long time, or a crack in the enamel can expose the pulp.
The Root Canal Procedure
Once Dr. Rakowsky has confirmed that you have a pulp infection, the root canal procedure will start with him numbing the tooth as well as the surrounding area. He’ll place a small hole in the enamel, through which he’ll remove the pulp and clean/sanitize the interior of the tooth. He’ll then place a filling to restore the lost structure, and at a follow-up appointment, he’ll further reinforce the tooth with a custom-made dental crown.
