Root Canal Therapy – Newbury Township, OH
Save and Restore Your Tooth
What, exactly, is root canal therapy? Root canal therapy (or endodontic treatment) is a procedure used to treat problems with the pulp inside of your tooth. Every tooth contains canals that house soft tissue, carrying blood and nutrients through the tooth. When this becomes damaged or infected, it can threaten your tooth, eventually causing you to lose the tooth if not taken care of. Root canal therapy can be amazingly effective in saving teeth that would have been removed in the past – up to 95% of cases can be successfully treated with root canal therapy, which involves going into the tooth, cleaning out infected or damaged tissue, detoxifying the chambers, and filling the tooth.

Indications for Root Canal Therapy
The main causes of damage that call for root canal therapy are irritation and trauma. Irritation can occur when an aggressive cavity breaks through to the pulp chamber, exposing the nerve to bacteria and leading to infection. Trauma can be caused by injury to the tooth or jaw, thus damaging the nerve inside the tooth. Symptoms that you might need root canal therapy include:
- Pain in the tooth when you bite
- Increased tooth sensitivity when exposed to hot or cold
- Swelling of the face
