Root Canal Treatment in South Holland
Root Canal Treatment is a special process to treat a tooth which has become infected deep in its core. This usually happens when there is an injury or cavities are neglected for a long time, and the decay keeps spreading.
An infected root canal is a serious medical issue as it can affect the nerve ending and even the bone. If left untreated, it can even affect your entire immune system adversely. It is also a painful problem to have.
Some of the symptoms of this are:
- Unusual taste in the mouth
- Sensitivity to extreme temperatures or sweets
- Severe toothache
In some cases, no symptoms show up, and the infection is discovered only at the time of dental checkup. The process requires that the inside of the tooth is cleaned, and the infected area removed. It needs to be further disinfected to ensure that the rot does not spread. A cap or crown is usually recommended after the tooth has been cleaned out to protect it from fracturing.
