This summer, protect yourself with root canal therapy. In some cases, teeth cannot be saved, and order to prevent further harm from occurring to your mouth, root canals must be used to remove the pulp from teeth, which may have become infected.

Common causes that typically necessitate root canal treatments include:

– If you have a multitude of dental procedures on a tooth, the unending wear and tear to the tooth could leave it vulnerable to a pulp infection, which would then require a root canal.
– 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 unhealthy and 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 unprotected and cause the pulp to become damaged or diseased.
– Some injuries can transpire in teeth that are not visible, and damage to the pulp can still occur if the bacteria seeps through to the root.
