Are you familiar with the benefits that can be had through the use of an antibiotic treatment such as a root canal therapy? Root canal therapies are forms of tooth restorations designed to save teeth if other options have already been exhausted. In situations where you have suffered damage to a tooth’s pulp, it will need to be extracted so the tooth can effectively function without needing to be taken out.

In order to make sure that you are effectively taking care of your smile and limiting the risk of pulp damage, always be aware of common pulp causes. If you routinely neglect your oral hygiene, you could suffer from deep cavities that expose the root of a tooth and allow a pulp to be vulnerable to infection and damage.

Another common risk factor associated with pulp damage is due to oral accidents or injuries that can arise at any time. If you are involved in a contact sport or other high-risk activity, it is important to wear the necessary safety equipment to lower your risk of suffering from a strike or blow to the face that can damage your tooth enamel and give rise to either pulp damage or knocked out teeth.

If you have repeated dental procedures to a tooth including complex treatments that slowly wear down your tooth enamel, it may have left you vulnerable to possible infections to your pulp. If for any reason you suffer any damage to your pulp, you’ll need to visit our office for a root canal therapy to save the tooth.
