Root Canal Therapy
According to the American Association of Endodontics, an endodontic (root canal therapy) procedure is necessary when the pulp, the soft tissue inside the root canal, becomes inflamed or infected. The inflammation or infection can have a variety of causes: deep decay repeated dental procedures on the tooth or a crack or chip in the tooth. In addition, an injury to a tooth may cause pulp damage even if the tooth has no visible chips or cracks. If pulp inflammation or infection is left untreated, it can cause pain or lead to an abscess.
Endodontic procedures has the advantage to save your own natural teeth. Root canal therapy is when the removal of the inflamed or infected pulp is cleaned and shaped, then filled and sealed appropriately. All other restorations will be done by a general practitioner.
Root Canal Therapy Retreatment
Each case is different in that after having root canal treatment the tooth may incur infection again. This can be due to a missed canal or reocurring infection. When this occurs, endodontic retreatment is needed. The endodontist then removes any infection, cleans and shapes the canals, and places new filling materials. All other restorations will be done by a general practitioner.
