There are 28 to 32 different teeth adults supposed to have. The incisors, canines and molars teeth. Teeth that in children first appear and remain until 5-6 years old are milk teeth. Teeth are placed among the important organs that we need most functionally. That’s why it’s vital to keep our teeth well-groomed. If we do not spend enough attentions to our teeth, it could causes serious problems.
Root Canal Therapy (Endodontics) is a form of treatment in cases when the nerve (Pulp) is damaged in such a way that it can not repair itself. Pulp is the tissue that gives vitality to the tooth, which is responsible for the development, nutrition and defense in the innermost part of the tooth. Often, in broken teeth or deep caries, bacteria cause inflammation of the pulp. If the inflamed or damaged nerve is not removed, it causes infection in the tooth and surrounding tissues, and the tooth might be lost. The pulp tissue must be removed and the canal cavity cleaned, shaped and filled with tissue-friendly canal fillers. These procedures are defined as Root Canal Treatment.
Root Canal treatment methods give last chance to the tooth that can be used for life. However, it may be more fragile than natural teeth.
