When do I need a root treatment?

A root canal treatment becomes necessary if the soft inner tissue of the tooth, the pulp, is inflamed or infected.

This can have a large number of reasons:

  • caries
  • thermal or chemical stimuli
  • a crack or
  • an accidental injury (trauma)

If the inflammation of the pulp is not treated, this can lead to pain as well as to damaging and inflammation of the jawbone.
