Did your dentist suggest that you undergo a root canal Jupiter as soon as possible? Root canal treatment is the treatment of choice for patients who have a severely decayed or infected tooth. It is a procedure that attempts to save the tooth. The term sounds a bit scary, which is why the majority of patients who are told that they need a root canal treatment deliberately miss their next dental appointment. What they don’t realize is that when they forego root canal treatment they are putting their dental health at risk and possibly encouraging the spread of infection.
What is Root Canal Jupiter?
The term root canal is used to describe the hallowed chamber within your tooth. It’s a small channel that starts at the center of the tooth and branches into two parts ending in the tooth roots. The procedure is basically known for saving a tooth where the soft tissues also known as the pulp becomes infected and inflamed.
Why Do I Need Root Canal Treatment?
When the pulp is infected or inflamed as a result of untreated tooth decay or accidental injury, the infected soft tissues must be extracted to protect the tooth from further damage and to stop the spread of infection. Don’t worry about the pulp because they serve no significant purpose during adulthood. Its main function is to help in tooth development during your childhood years.
Is it Going to be Painful?
The treatment in itself is not painful although you will experience some mild discomfort like receiving a tooth filling. It’s a misconception that root canal will cause you excruciating pain. This is the reason why dentists are educating patients that the treatment is in fact needed to remove the source of pain rather than create it.
