Before jumping into reasons for Endodontics treatment first let us consider what endodontics is all about. The Top 4 Reasons On Why You Need An Endodontics Treatment Are: Deep Decay: It's also referred to as Tooth Decay which occurs when the bacteria living inside the mouth produce some acids that eat away the teeth. When deep decay is developed it's time to consider an Endodontic Treatment in Pasadena. Usually, it's difficult to identify the decay but the symptoms include pain, sensitivity, and infection. Repeated Procedures: Multiple dental procedures performed on a single tooth increases the risk for Root Canal treatment. The best way to avoid repeated dental procedure is by opting for root canals first. Well, there are several reasons why a tooth may require numerous dental treatments some may include when an already filled tooth requires a new form of dental treatment. Cracked/Chipped Tooth: Cracked, Chipped and other types of trauma are the cause of a root canal procedure. Most of the Cracked/Chipped tooth is repaired using tooth-colored bonding material or by Dental Crown placed on top of the tooth. A root canal is typically needed if the damage to the tooth is extended into the pulp. Large Fillings: Large fillings are required when the cavity is left untreated. When a patient goes for a dental filling the amount of decay may be large resulting in more tooth structure removal. Large filling affects the structural integrity of a tooth and increases the risk for a root canal treatment.
