Are you in need of root canal treatments for the summer season? A root canal is a dental treatment designed to protect and save a tooth after the pulp has been damaged. Root canals remove the pulp and seal the tooth, thus prolonging its lifespan.
Common causes that characteristically require root canal treatments include:
– If a cavity has gone untreated in a tooth, it can lead to decay in your tooth down to your root and cause your tooth’s pulp in your root to become diseased and require a root canal.
– If you have suffered an oral accident or injury that left you with broken or cracked teeth, the root of the teeth could be exposed and cause the pulp to become damaged or diseased.
– If you have a multitude of dental services on a tooth, the constant wear and tear to the tooth could leave it vulnerable to a pulp infection, which would then require a root canal.
– Some injuries can befall teeth that is not visible, and damage to the pulp can still occur if the bacteria seeps through to the root.
