Root canal therapy is a highly effective method for treating a tooth that has suffered irreversible damage to its nerve. When deep decay or traumatic injury allow bacteria to seep in, the pulp of the tooth can become infected. Dental pulp consists of core tissues, blood vessels, and nerves that lie underneath the tooth’s outermost biting surface. Fracture or decay can allow bacteria to infect the dental pulp, which can cause most uncomfortable symptoms. If you are experiencing a toothache, it is important to seek professional care right away to ensure your dentist can deliver the most effective course of treatment. To determine if root canal treatment is necessary, your dentist will perform a comprehensive examination, using diagnostic films as needed. During Lisle root canal therapy, your dentist removes the damaged or decayed pulp from the tooth, cleans and shapes the pulp chamber, then seals the tooth with inert materials. A successful root canal provides much-needed relief from a toothache and prevents subsequent damage to the treated tooth. Root canal treatment has a 95% rate of success, and a tooth that has been treated with a root canal can remain healthy and functional throughout your life. Following treatment, your dentist may recommend a dental crown, to restore the tooth’s function and appearance.
