There is a procedure known as a root canal treatment that can repair and solve the fix which has
been damaged or infected badly. Also known as endodontic therapy, there comes less
requirement of removing the teeth as the endodontist makes an effort to treat the condition. This
kind of treatment proves to be painless and often leaves the patient with less uneasiness at the
time of recovery as compared to the condition when they have their natural tooth extracted. For a
Tooth’s health and function, after it has emerged through the gums, one of the vital elements
required is the nerve of the tooth. Its function is to deliver the sensation of hot or cold and its
presence and absence will not affect the everyday functioning of the tooth.
When a condition takes place of the tooth’s nerve being damaged, it breaks down and the
appearance of bacteria arises within the pulp chamber. The presence of bacteria along with other
debris can bring chances of infection or abscessed tooth. An abscess can be understood as a pus-
filled pocket that forms at the end of the tooth’s root. There will be a presence of an abscess
when the infection spreads all the way past the ends of the tooth’s root.
