What is Non-Surgical Root Canal Therapy?
Root canal therapy used to be a very involved, complex procedure. Today, it is as routine as filling a cavity. The combination of technological advancements and advanced procedures allows for root canals to be performed with ease.
Root canal therapy is often recommended to remove infections found deep within the tooth so that the natural tooth may be saved. Whether from a cavity where decay spread through the enamel, a crack, or something else – bacteria that make their way into the pulp area of the tooth can cause infection. This area is full of soft tissue containing blood vessels, nerves, and the like. Without treatment, the infection can continue to grow and cause damage to your tooth, your gums, and your jaw bone.
Root canal therapy is designed to remove the infection – and the pulp – while also disinfecting the inside of the tooth. It is then sealed up so that it may heal. This is one of the most common ways that endodontists are able to save a natural tooth.
