For the patients who are suffering from tooth decay and if it has been reached to such a level that even tooth filling may not work to heal it then, root canal therapy is the best possible solution.
A root canal procedure is necessary in many cases in which tooth decay is severe enough to reach the nerve-filled pulp of the tooth. The pulp of a tooth is a soft area at the core of the tooth, and is filled with nerves that connect to the root of a tooth through the root canal. When this area becomes infected, it can be a source of continuing toothaches and severe pain when the tooth is used in actions such as chewing.
In a root canal procedure, the infected pulp of a tooth is removed. The nerves in a tooth don’t really have much a function besides sensing temperature, so their removal doesn’t cause any impediments for a patient. Most patients who undergo a root canal in Studio City are local anaesthetized. Once this occurs, the dentist then slowly files away the pulp of a tooth while periodically flushing away the debris with either sodium hypochlorite or water. Once this process is complete, the tooth is then sealed.
If you are suffering from prolonged toothaches, severe tooth pain, or uncomfortably intense dental sensitivity to heat and cold, you should strongly consider scheduling an appointment with Studio City Dental Center in order to determine whether or not a root canal procedure is necessary.
