Is a Root Canal in the Cards for You This Summer?

Posted .

Is a root canal in the cards for you this summer? Root canal treatments are typically used to save teeth that otherwise would have to be extracted due to severe damage or infection to the pulp.

Common causes that typically require root canal treatments include:

– If a cavity has gone untreated in a tooth, it can eventually decay your tooth down to your root and cause your tooth’s pulp in your root to become diseased.
– If you have a multitude of dental procedures on a tooth, the constant wear and tear to the tooth could leave it vulnerable to a pulp infection, which would then require a root canal.
– If you have suffered an oral accident or injury that left you with broken or fractured teeth, the root of the teeth could be exposed and cause the pulp to become damaged or diseased.
– Some injuries can occur to teeth that are not visible, and damage to the pulp can still occur if the bacteria seeps through to the root.
