When damage affect a tooth’s pulp chamber, a root canal is required. If left untreated, infection can spread to the roots of the tooth and bone causing a painful abscess to develop. A root canal treatment is when the canals of the tooth are cleaned out so that the majority of the tooth’s structure can be saved. Thanks to East Boston Dental And Orthodontics, getting a root canal without pain – free as having a cavity filled. To begin a root canal procedure, an opening is made through the crown of the affected tooth allowing access to the pulp chamber. Once the canals are cleaned, they are filed and sealed with a material called Gutta – Percha. To anchor the restoration, a post may be cemented in place. The remaining space is then filled and shaped with filling material. In order to restore your tooth to its original shape and provide further strength, your tooth may need to be prepared and fit with a new crown. After a successful root canal treatment, your tooth should function normally with no pain.
