Teeth can sometimes become infected or inflamed. This can be caused either by improper oral hygiene or a defect at the root of the tooth. Cracks in the tooth and extensive dental procedures are also known to cause this kind of problem. When it happens, the root spaces of the tooth have to be cleaned out and repaired. In order to accomplish this, Dr. Darren Flowers in Anthem, Ariz., will drill into the tooth and use small instruments to work into the root structure of the tooth. The root canal spaces are then cleaned out and everything within is removed to prepare the tooth for filling. A biocompatible material is then used to fill in the root canal spaces so the tooth is once again whole. To seal off the tooth and protect the filling from being exposed, specialized cement is used on your tooth. With proper care, your root canal can last as long as, or even longer than, your natural roots.

If a tooth is not treated with a root canal, the inflammation and decay can spread to the rest of the mouth. The affected tooth will fall out and the decay can move into the jawbone. As the jawbone deteriorates, the rest of the teeth will start to fall out as well. Those who refuse to have a root canal will suffer from extreme pain as the decay and inflammation spreads throughout the rest of the mouth. Eliminating the rot and decay in the first tooth will help to prevent its spread by eliminating the root problem.
When you opt to get a root canal, you do more than just prevent additional pain in your mouth. You also make it possible to maintain your smile without having to go through procedures like bridges or implants. Root canals can be finished in one office visit, rather than the multiple visits a bridge or an implant requires. Additionally, when you opt to have a root canal, you will not have to go through the unpleasant experience of having to remove the tooth. The pain of a root canal can be managed and only lasts for a day, leaving you years to enjoy a healthy and pain-free smile.
