Cavities pose a serious threat to your oral health – hopefully, you are taking care to avoid them. Unfortunately, many people will not see their dentist until decay has reached the point of infecting their tooth, which calls for a root canal treatment. While the idea of a root canal can sometimes stir a sense of unease, your Prairie Village, KS dentist can make the process more comfortable than you realize. You can count on anesthesia to help you avoid pain, and dental sedation can offer reliable support in the form of helping you remain calm and collected. What you should worry about is the cavity that makes a root canal necessary, as its continued growth can lead to a worrying continued spread of bacteria, and the loss of your tooth.
Protecting You From The Problems Associated With Advanced Tooth Decay
When a cavity first forms, the damage is limited to your enamel. However, the problem can continue to grow if you do not take action by seeking the necessary restorative dental treatment. At a more advanced stage, your pulp (the interior chamber of your tooth) can be infiltrated, leading to an infection of a tooth’s living tissues. Beyond that point, bacteria can spread through your root and leave your tooth. It is possible for an advanced cavity to leave a tooth too damaged to save.
