The goal of a root canal is to save the natural tooth. During an endodontic treatment the inflamed, infected pulp inside the tooth is removed, then cleaned and sealed. A crown or cap is then placed gently over the Baton Rouge root canal site to protect the newly filled hole. Once restored, the tooth can go back to normal function and patients can chew and eat normally again.Teeth that have been warped or damaged because of infection usually require root canal therapy. After damage or a cavity, there are times when the nerves have been greatly damaged and a root canal is necessary to save the real tooth, preventing it from needing extraction. When a tooth has been damaged down to the root, it can become painful, sore and irritated. Infection can set in and make the tooth inflamed. This can cause an abscess if left untreated. If an abscess if found, antibiotics will be prescribed after the procedure to heal the infection.
