Root Canal Therapy
Root Canal Therapy In Beausejour
Root canal therapy is a treatment, primarily used as a preventive measure to save an infected tooth from permanent damage. The main aim of root canal therapy is to remove any infected pulp and to restore the health and strength of infected teeth. Dental pulp is present in each tooth and is useful to nourish your teeth. Infected pulp can cause a lot of pain and distress, and if not treated in time, the infection may also spread to the neighboring gums and teeth. The symptoms of infected pulp can include:
- Swelling of gums and surrounding facial muscles.
- Discoloration of teeth.
- Pain in the neck, head and jaw.
If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, you may require root canal therapy, which consists of the dentist carefully drilling into the tooth’s enamel, within the pulp chamber, and extracting decayed pulp. After the extraction of the decayed pulp, the tooth is sealed with gold, porcelain / tooth colored fillings and / or capped with a dental crown.
