Root canal treatment is a branch of dentistry which engages in detecting, engaging and curing the diseases of the tooth pulp which is a soft tissue located within the teeth.
Root canal treatment is processed when the blood or nerve supply of the tooth is infected by decay or an injury. In the early stages, you may not feel any pain. The tooth could darken in colour for some scenarios which may mean that the nerve of the tooth has died or about to die. In this condition, the patient will need to undergo a root canal treatment.
How does root canal processed?
The root canal of the tooth is first cleaned and shaped in order to create space for the filling. Medical contents can be applied into the cleaned pulp cavity. Thus will eliminate bacteria and will prevent an infection. After these processes are finished the rest is covered with a temporary filling.
If there is a present severe pulp infection case, expert the dentist might leave the processed cavity open for several days to ensure draining. Your dentist can prescribe antibiotics and some other medications just to action against the possible infection.
On the very next stage of the root canal treatment, the temporary filling is removed. The pulp cavity and root canals are filled with materials which will prevent repetitive penetration of bacteria. A metal pin can be inserted into the root canal in order to fortify the structure of the filling.
At the last stage of the root canal treatment; the structure, a crown is placed on the tooth in order to restore the function and appear of the tooth. Since the aesthetic appearance is very important, front teeth most likely require placing a porcelain crown or a crown made of porcelain and metal.

Root canal treatment helps to save the tooth with infection or pulp damage and prevent the spread of the inflammation to the periodontal ligament which connects the tooth and the jaw and further on to the bone tissue of the jaw.

Tooth extraction without replacing the tooth with an artificial construction can lead to the shift of the teeth on both sides of the empty space. Such a shift causes overcrowding, twist, and other defects of the adjacent teeth, which reduce the efficiency of biting and chewing, hinder the tooth cleaning and make the teeth more prone to cavities. As a result, the adjoining teeth can also be lost with time.

The replacement of the removed tooth with the help of an implant or a bridge is normally a more costly procedure than endodontic treatment.
