Root canal therapy will save the integrity of a severely damaged tooth. Dr. Aryani of Orchid Dental in Bala Cynwyd is dedicated to providing long-term health with high function and quality restorations to all patients. In doing so, Dr. Aryani will always work to save original teeth whenever possible. Root canals give dentists the opportunity to treat teeth from the inside out, preventing tooth loss and recurrences of infection and decay.
Root Canal Treatment
Root canal therapy is a pretty straightforward procedure that puts an end to the pain. To understand the process, it is helpful to have some knowledge of the structure of the tooth and how gum disease attacks the root. The tooth comprises of numerous components; the crown is the visible top part of the tooth and it contains a chamber filled with “pulp”, or soft tissue, nerves and blood cells. The nerves extend, via canals, from the crown through the tooth, to its roots.
When gum disease is allowed to develop untreated, it attacks the nerve tissue and pulp; disease-causing bacteria multiply and colonize within the pulp chamber. This creates the perfect conditions for further infection, or for an abscess to develop. An abscess is an infected pocket of tissue filled with pus that forms at the base of a tooth's root. If an abscess develops it demands immediate attention before infection travels further down to the bone area where patients at that point risk tooth loss.
