When the time comes to take your oral health to the next level, it is important to make sure that any potential damage that may be arising in your mouth is mitigated as soon as possible. If left untreated, bacteria can enter a tooth and begin to slowly destroy the inner workings of a tooth including the pulp. If a pulp becomes infected, a root canal therapy will be needed. Common causes of infected pulps include the following:

– In many instances, microscopic damage may occur to you that was not visible. If the damage occurs to the point that bacteria has seeped into a tooth and begun to infect the pulp, root canal therapy will be used.

– If you have any deep cavities, they will need to be filled in. If left untreated, damage can occur down to the root of a tooth and require a root canal therapy.

– Repeated dental procedures are known for wearing away the surface of a tooth. If constant wear-and-tear leads to pulp infection, a root canal will be needed.

– Oral accidents and injuries can severely damage your smile. A single oral accident can potentially crack, break, or damage the pulp. If the pulp is damaged or diseased, root canal therapy will be needed.
