The space inside the tooth from the center,which is called as the pulp chamber, which travels down the length of the root to the tip is called a "canal," or more specifically,we can call it as the root canal.The tooth's nerve lies within the root canal. Its only function is sensory,that is to provide the sensation of hot or cold and the presence or absence of a nerve will not affect the day-to-day functioning of the tooth.Depending on the anatomy of the tooth,human teeth may have one to four root canals.Dental root canal treatment removes tooth pulp from inside the teeth, which is essential to maintain our health.
An infection in the root canal of a tooth can cause:
- Bone loss around the tip of the root.
- Swelling may spread to other areas of the face, neck, or head
Root canal Therapy is the procedure of removing dead or dying nerve tissue and bacteria from inside a tooth.This is done if you have any infection that affects the nerve in the root of a tooth . Root canal remove the pulp inside the tooth and then replaces it with filling material and thus can the infection can be effectively prevent.Root canal procedure is done to save the damaged or dead pulp in the root canal of the tooth by cleaning out the diseased pulp and reshaping the canal.The canal is filled with a rubber like substance, which is called gutta–percha or another material to prevent the recontamination of the tooth. Then the tooth is permanently sealed, with possibly a post and/or a crown made of porcelain or metal alloy and this enables patients to keep the original tooth as before.
