Root Canals are one of the most common dental procedures in dentistry. Root canals allow you to save your natural teeth and prevent the need for dental implants or bridges in the future.
Root canal therapy is indicated when the center of the tooth containing the pulp chamber, which contains the nerves and blood supply of the tooth, is infected or irreversibly inflamed.
Many times tooth pain due to decay, fracture or for no specific reason at all indicates root canal therapy be done. Many times the only solution to relieving your symptoms of pain is a root canal by Dr. Neda Naim in her West Los Angeles areaBrentwooddental office.
Factors Indicating Root Canal Therapy
- When decay is deep and reaches the nerve and introduces the pulp to decay bacteria
- Trauma to the tooth due to impact which can reduce or diminish nourishment to tooth
- Fracture of the tooth structure exposing the nerve tissue to bacteria in the mouth
- Gum disease in advanced stages can cause infection of the pulp
