When the decay and bacteria from the outside of the tooth reaches the pulp centre of the tooth, this can infect the nerve and blood supply of the tooth causing a toothache. Root canal treatment is generally like a deeper filling all the way to the ends of the roots of the teeth through several stages at the dentist.
STAGES OF TREATMENT
How many stages does a root canal treatment take?
Every root canal treatment is different, but here is an overview of the steps in the treatment.
Removing the debris from the pulp chamber and placing antibiotics
Cleaning the walls of the canals out and shape them so it can later be sealed
Sealing the prepared canals to reduce any bacteria returning into the pulp
A crown is needed to encase the tooth and make it stronger
* It is very important that root canal therapy goes through every stage to be able to save the tooth so it can function without any temperature sensitivity.
