Why root canal treatments?
Your mouth is such an intricate structure, so much can happen beneath the surface. Not exposed to the naked eye are underlying roots, and root canals, that contain blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissues. To keep the whole network healthy, you must maintain your teeth and gums with proper oral hygiene. Like teeth can become decayed, teeth roots can develop infections that require root canal therapy to eliminate the harmful bacteria and restore the tooth back to normal function. If infected nerve tissue or tooth pulp is left untreated, it continues to deteriorate, and the bacteria may develop an abscess, or face, jaw, throat or mouth infection.
