What is Root Canal Treatment?:
Endodontic therapy or root canal therapy, colloquially root canal, is a sequence of treatment for the pulp of a tooth which results in the elimination of infection and protection of the decontaminated tooth from future microbial invasion, normally Endodontic therapy involves the removal of badly structured or ill teeth, cleaning, and decontamination of the hollows with tiny files and irrigating solutions and that is the best thing that you can do to get rid of sharp sensation and pain that you get when you drink something hot or cold and there are lots of myths attached with that and we are going to talk about that.
Normally people feel that when we get that treatment we have to get that treatment every year or this teeth will tooth may have to be taken out eventually?
That is absolutely wrong, if you got root canal treatment then your tooth is literally dead and it doesn’t feel anything or doesn’t get infection normally, but if you have got a perfect treatment then you might have that same teeth for rest of your life and you don’t even have to treat the same teeth ever again, To increase the longevity of your teeth maintain good oral hygiene, try to avoid all kind of unhealthy habits don’t touch it too much, try to eat healthy things and wash your mouth after that and you will never get any issue with that teeth.
If I Don’t Have Any Pain, I Don’t Really Need A Root Canal:
Well! That is not really true, it is a huge possibility that your tooth that needs root canal therapy may not have pain, but if you avoid that treatment you might get infection or you eventually have to remove that teeth, sometime untreated infection can cause pus accumulation at the root tip in the jawbone, forming an abscess and that happen within a day or a night and your dental would remove it immediately cause that is the only solution for that kind of issue, After root canal, I don’t need to go back to the dentist for a while.
Well that is not really very true, you don’t have to get any kind of treatment, but you have to get there to get some checkup and see if thing are alright and if your doc say that you are alright then you don’t have to really go there for a year.
Look after yourself and stay healthy.
