ROOT CANAL TREATMENT
Root canal treatment (also called ‘endodontics’) is needed when the blood or nerve supply of the tooth (called the ‘pulp’) is infected through decay or injury. You may not feel any pain in the early stages of the infection. In some cases, your tooth could darken in colour, which may mean that the nerve of the tooth has died (or is dying). This would need root canal treatment.
A root canal can be performed when the endodontist started to remove pulp and nerve of infected tooth. Dentists start to shape canals and after cleaning or removal of nerve they fill the tooth with fillings and place a crown on top of it to restore the function of tooth and also to protect it from bacteria and any other damage.
After Root canal treatment bacteria may develop if the instrument used for procedure is not sterilize or simply the canals left untreated, filling and seal has not been done precisely to avoid such circumstances.
There is no age requirement to get the procedure done, instead if it’s delayed for too long it can cause decay or other bacterial infection that can spread in mouth and may led to dental abscess which require immediate medical treatment if happen.
