Endodontics is a field in dentistry dedicated to rescuing and restoring teeth that have become infected.

While an endodontic treatment is equipped to perform a variety of dental procedures, one of the most common is a root canal treatment.

How does the pulp become infected?

The dental pulp is the soft tissue at the centre of a tooth. As this tissue contains the tooth’s blood vessels and nerve endings, it can cause discomfort when it becomes infected.

Infection is mostly caused by bacteria penetrating the tooth enamel and into the pulp. In the presence of tooth decay, cavities can form and allow bacteria to enter the central pulp chamber.

Sometimes due to tooth wear-and-tear or injury, cracks can appear that enable bacteria to enter the tooth.

What are the signs of a dental pulp infection?

If you notice severe, persistent aching in your tooth or jaw, increased sensitivity toward hot and cold food, or uncomfortable swelling on your gums, you might be suffering from a dental pulp infection.

Seek dental treatment immediately to prevent the condition from worsening.

What is a re-root canal treatment?

A re-root canal treatment is a procedure used when the initial attempt to save the tooth has failed.

During a root canal treatment, a dentist may place a tiny post into the canal to support a new dental crown. While complications from a root canal are rare, this post may become problematic, and your dentist will have to carry out a post-removal procedure to rectify the condition.
