Root Canal Treatment at Lifetime Dental, San Bernardino
The outermost layer of your teeth is the enamel. Beneath the enamel lies the second layer called the dentin. Inside the dentin is the live nerve and tissue structure of the teeth. This is the softest part of the teeth and is called the pulp.
An infection in the pulp of your teeth may be caused by damage to the outer layers, which cause the pulp to get exposed to the outer environment and get contaminated. The treatment administered to remove an infected pulp is a Root Canal therapy.
The treatment involves getting inside the pulp space to remove infected and dead tissue. The area is then thoroughly disinfected, flushed and then sealed tightly. The use of advanced techniques and materials has made root canal treatments far more comfortable and fast than in the earlier days. Once the treatment is complete, the area is covered with a dental crown to protect the tooth from fracture.
